We will help you Understand the BP Settlement Agreement

BP Claims Settlement “Your Options”

BP Claims Settlement What you Need to Know

bp claims  The BP Claims Settlement is an opt in or opt out process, what does that mean? That means you are bound by the decision of the BP Settlement Court Supervised Program. If you don`t like the amount you have been awarded you can go to an appeals board that will be set up within the new program.

 Ramifications

Your stuck with what they offer you or don`t offer you and can not litigate, but you can appeal. Many attorneys have chosen not to participate because of this, some of those same Attorneys had agendas to litigate from the beginning and are using this new development to hang their hats on.

BP Claims get Easier to Prove

Causation and Calculations were the biggest hurdles for many to overcome, many of the more stringent guidelines have been modified or done away with all together. There will be a clear map that will contain zones explaining what industries within those zones are payable. The calculations will be based on the 3 worst consecutive months of 2010 after the Oil Spill, based upon those same 3 months for the previous years of 2007, 2008, 2009. There are multiple remedies if some of the criteria can not be met. A multiplier and some future trending will be applied to your loss after the 2010 amount is subtracted from the average of the preceding years.

Ramifications

BP Settlement Claims will be easier to get through the system, you will have a clear understanding if you do or do not qualify, the BP Claims Settlement Process is built for Transparency.

Do you need an Attorney to become a part of the BP Claims Settlement

All indications at this point are you do NOT need an attorney, this is just a court supervised claims process. It is not a court process, but it is supervised by Judge Barbier, if indeed people needed an Attorney what would happen to all of the BP Claims that will be transitioning over from the GCCF. Some Attorneys are telling people through various websites that you NEED Attorneys or how much they have had in awards. What they fail to tell you is that those awards have nothing to do with the BP Claims process, be careful. Some Attorneys will put a lien on your file for just signing up with them.

If you decide to litigate your BP Claims you will clearly need the Assistance of an Attorney. If your claim has issues, you may need an Attorney. Attorneys are very much a part of this process, but you need to deal with honorous, upright firms. There are sharks in these waters, but there are also life gaurds, you just need to know who is who.

Ramifications

We are seeing a RUSH of Attorneys advertising on the web and T.V. before the BP Claims Settlement Fund actually announces their process, this will lead many people to be bound to Attorneys and pay a higher percentage then they may have had to. The BP Claims Settlement Fund is setting it`s offices up in Hammond, Louisiana with a major call center in Sarasota, Florida. If indeed you needed an Attorney they most likely would not be setting up the call center.

If you want to use the Assistance of an attorney they should be charging you from 20-25% to guide you through the process. Some Attorneys will actually charge much less for large loss claims, as little as 15%.

Who are the Winners in the BP Claims Settlement.

It`s actually difficult to write about who the winners are, as I don`t believe there really are any, but some will see a financial windfall that suffered less long term damage then others.

Businesses and Individuals that are not dependent on the Gulf`s natural resources, that can show a loss and are within covered zones, are the biggest winners.

Business Owners and those with multiple Businesses
Realtors
Restaurants
Hotels
Service and Hospitality Employees
Any individual that has an economic loss
Waterfront Property and wetlands that had oil on it, had a contract that was canceled, and quite possibly experienced diminished value
Subsistence BP Claims, people that lived off the Gulf`s resources
Vessels of Opportunity Claims
Medical Claims

Seafood Harvester BP Claims, people that work in the Fishing, Shrimping, Oyster and other Seafood Industries should do well in the BP Claims Settlement. The issues here are that many of you had taken Quick Pays, because you were starved out, or took them for a number of other reasons. The Health of the Gulf and the future of your livelihood also needs to be considered, there are so many questions regarding the true state of the Gulf. Please remember that it took 3 years to find out the extent of the Damage after the Valdez Oil Spill.

The Losers in the BP Claims Settlement

Casinos
Moratorium Claims
Government Employees
Oil and Gas Industry Claimants
Banks
Insurance Companies
Financial Advisors
Quick Pays

Just because these are not being addressed in the BP Claims Settlement, that does not mean that your claims won`t be compensated under the threat of litigation, or under actual litigation. There may be an amended list of BP claims groups that will be considered under the settlement.

BP Claims and Fishermen being Pressured

BP Claims News

BP Claims

Fishermen Protesting BP Claims Policy

We are hearing that a lot of people in the Fishing Industry are being pressured to take BP Claims Quick Pays, DO NOT TAKE THEM. We have been hearing that the GCCF has been threatening investigations from several of you today, and some of you are actually being investigated by Guide Post. Do not be threatened by their coercive tactics. the BP Settlement is coming and it is our belief that the GCCF is mounting one last charge to save BP money, by trying to get you all to accept low ball offers. This is par for the course,  but we  haven`t seen it at this rate for some time.

BP Claims and Seafood Harvesters

Without a doubt one of the most affected groups, that should have had BP Claims being paid from the beginning is this group. Interim claims should have been coming out of the GCCF instead of them trying to starve you out with BP Claims Quick Pays, we are hearing horror stories today over the 1-800-BP-Claim lines today. We have been advocating for people in the Seafood Industry for some time now, and our phone line is literally lighting up. We are hearing that they are telling you all, your records are inaccurate, that you didn`t really fish those dates, that you weren`t trying hard enough.

BP Claims Help

If you need help with the GCCF we can help you. We have people that are willing to fight for you in our network, not just Attorneys and Consultants that will help you with your claims, but lobbyists, congressmen, and other folks who wield some influence around here. If you took a final payment but did not take the Quick Pay it is our understanding that you can get what is actually owed you. We are helping people file those claims now with the GCCF. We are still fighting for people, especially Fishermen who were starved out and forced to take Quick Pays.

BP Claims Settlement

Many people in the Seafood Industry did not even file BP Claims as they waited to see what was going to happen, and we are happy to help them start putting together their claims for the Settlement. For many this is just what they were waiting for. If your claim has been denied, still sitting at the GCCF, or even if you have taken a final we can help you.The BP Claims Settlement process is about to hit high gear. If we can help you put together your BP Claims for Settlement, we are happy to assist you. BP Claims consultants charge just 15% of what is collected if you need the help of an Attorney they will charge you from 20-25%.

BP Claims Settlement Concerns

BP Claims Quick Pays need to Be Addressed

BP ClaimsNow we have been an advocate for the BP Claims Settlement because we know many of you need help after the GCCF so miserably failed, but we have some concerns about settling your BP Claims and they need to be voiced. After a few weeks to digest the BP Claims Settlement this much has come to light. We have been talking to literally 1000`s of you.

BP and the GCCF had a plan from the very beginning to weed out and pay out as little as possible by dragging their feet and getting as many of you to sign Quick Pays as they could, and have no compunction of letting those who signed Quick Pays back to the table through the BP Claims Settlement, many of you are in the hardest hit industries, such as shrimping.

This is tragic, as homes went into foreclosure, and boats and cars were being repossessed, people were economically forced to take these Quick Pays, and that was all part of their plan, and finally when the BP Claims Settlement is about to take place, and it looks like you are finally going to be treated fairly, the last thing they want is this group back at the table. Shame on you BP. If you truly want to make things right treat everybody fairly.

The BP Settlement looks like a good thing for most people and Business, but for those that make a living from the Gulf, it stinks.

Nobody knows what the heck is going to happen in the years to come, we all know most catches are down across the boards, people are calling our oysters, “Oilsters”, stone crab catches are down dramatically, some shrimp catches are down by over 90%, and this is just the beginning of the fallout from the worst man made disaster in history.

As all of this is happening BP and the GCCF have been dragging their feet when it come to paying your BP Claims.

Who should Consider the BP Claims Settlement

If your Industry is not contingent upon with the Direct Health of the Gulf of Mexico and you live outside of the Areas that were most  impacted by the Oil Spill, the BP Claims Settlement is pretty much a no brainer for you.

For example if you are a Realtor in Sarasota County,  the waters of the Gulf seem to not have been affected there, strongly consider the the BP Settlement.

If you are a Shrimper out of Lafourche Parish in Louisiana we simply need more data then we currently have, and if you can economically afford it, wait it out, odds are you can`t, and many of you already took the BP Claims Quick Pays to save your houses and your boats, and you should have never had to do that, and you should at the very least, be able to be a part of the BP Claims Settlement.

As the BP Claims process has been going on, the price of gas has steadily increased, and by the time the settlement is done the gas prices will offset the penalties and the money that BP had to pay for its negligence.

The BP Claims process under Feinberg was a joke and everybody knows it, except it was a joke on Us the American people, and our President allowed it to be perpetuated. Sad but true. By the time anyone got around to doing anything about it, it will be 2 years later.

BP Claims Settlement Why?

Why do we all HAVE to settle anyway, why can`t people just get paid for what they have lost so far and a little extra for pain and suffering, wasn`t the original intent for them to pay Interim Claims, that`s right, about the time they were suppose to pay Interim Claims they hit us with the Quick Pay scam.

The fact is everybody affected right now should be getting Interim BP Claims money, but instead the Interim Claims were thwarted by the GCCF and Feinberg. We shouldn`t even be talking about about a BP Claims Settlement, we should be studying the true extent of the damage and coming up with ways to fix it.

So now they are finally going to come up with a bunch of cash before we know ALL the facts, and that`s suppose to cure everything. Tell that to our children, and our children’s children. As cancer rates begin to shoot up across the Gulf, especially with those exposed to Corexit, just as it happened in Alaska.

All of this is happening while people are dying, yes dying from the oil and the dispersant Corexit that was suppose to clean up this mess. The EPA even told BP not to use the toxic dispersant, but BP went right along and still used it, when there were several other organic alternatives available.

I  can not tell you how many people we hear from on a daily basis whose health has been RUINED by the use of Corexit during the Oil Spill Clean Up process, and there was never any remedy for that in the BP Claims process until now in the BP Claims Settlement Program. I am glad to see that those suffering from medical complications will finally see some relief, but can you really put a price on it.

The BP Settlement will help a lot of people, but why do we have to settle now, why not just give us what you owe us, and when we know the true extent, then Settle with Us, in years to come it will come to light that many settled on the cheap just like the people who took the Quick Pays did, remember it took  THREE YEARS for the true extent of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill to be felt environmentally and economically.

To this day only 15% percent of the Herring ever came back to Prince Edward Sound. So they are aiming at ending the BP Claims and BP Claims Settlement to be done in about 3 Years, don`t you think that is rather ironic. It took 3 years just to figure out what was going on the last time we had a tragedy like this, and that one pales in size and comparison.

The fact is the BP Settlement is the best many of our legal minds, could to come up with. They would not have been put in this position had BP and the GCCF been fair about paying Interim Claims. There are groups of highly skilled Attorneys doing battle for Us in New Orleans as I write this, and it is appreciated, many of them work with us.

It looks like the BP Claims Settlement will be made available for many to see in the very near future. It even looks like it will help a lot of people and businesses, but it`s forgetting to address the people that were on the environmental and economic front lines, those that were making a living from the bounty of the Gulf, and did not have the savings in place to make it 2 years before the BP Claims Settlement took place.

Remember that the Gulf is a Renewable Resource what price tag  can be put on it when the word Renewable is taken out of it, I`ll tell you what it is, PRICELESS, and that`s why they want to settle within 3 years.

BP Claims Settlement News

BP Claims Settlement and The D.O.J

BP Claims Settlement news hit the wire according to a recent report. BP may settle all oil spill claims for 25 Billion Dollars according to Morgan Stanley. Analysts at Morgan Stanley believe that the Department of Justice and BP will come to terms before the February 27th trial date. It appears that it will be announced before February 7th when BP is suppose to release it`s fourth quarter results.

This is very significant for everyone that was affected by the BP Oil Spill. Please note this is just the beginning of this hitting the news, we predicted it would be 30 Billion back in late September. BP is trying to avoid the trial in February, it is obvious that for a number of reasons things will not bode well for BP, if in fact they go to trial. BP personnel are now facing criminal charges. If you look at all the news surrounding BP and the GCCF, the audit the GCCF is currently undergoing, the upcoming trial date for BP, and now the criminal charges, the best thing for BP is to prepare for a BP Claims Settlement.

It seems that there are several different formats that your BP Claims will get paid out. One rumor is that the GCCF will stay in place, but with a new methodology and new oversight, the other possibility is it will be setup as they do after a Hurricane with some sort of tribunal format, and another is that people will get paid through one of several court methods, possibly even set up at the local level.
