BP Claims and the Gulf Coast Claims Facility
BP Claims and Shrimpers Claims
Breaking news has been released that 53% of the gulf shrimp that were tested contained PAH’s (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons). There has been consumption warnings issued, and shrimping continues to be affected drastically. We are just beginning to realize how much the environment has been impacted since the oil spill and you can be sure we will continue to hear even more devastating news. Ken Feinberg has been reprimanded by Capitol Hill for the way has chosen to handle the BP Claims process. He inferred the shrimpers would get some much needed relief.
With BP Claims deadlines approaching and BP claims offices closing, the Gulf Coast Claims Facility has prolonged a state of disarray in the BP Claims process. Thousands of people are stuck in the delay or deny tactic the GCCF has decided to continue on those directly affected by the Oil Spill.
What we found out about the BP Claims process.
The GCCF has made the claims process almost unbearable for those who suffered loss from the oil spill. We have acquired a much better understanding of what is going on inside the GCCF and how the claims process is working behind the closed doors of the GCCF. This has given us a much better understanding of what exactly the GCCF is looking for when processing your claim.
Breaking News: BP Claims Updates.
BP and the GCCF are trying to skate around BP Claims Consultants and have a more direct exchange with individuals filing claims on their own. In doing this the GCCF is aiming to interact only with individuals themselves on their settlement offers and decisions in hopes that the individuals will take low ball offers because of their lack of knowledge and advice from a professional. Can you blame them? Claimants must sign and agree that a BP Claims Consultant be made aware of any new information or decisions being made. This does not include Attorney’s at this time. If you would like to have your claims consultant included in your decision of settlement be sure to send the signed document stating that all information on your claim should also be sent to your BP Claims Adjuster. Do not take a low ball offer without seeking advice from a professional.
Here is how it reads:
Notices and Payments. The GCCF no longer will send letters on claims determinations
or payments to a Claims Preparer. Instead, the GCCF will send all letters and payments
directly to the claimant. If a claimant has submitted to the GCCF a document signed by
the claimant authorizing a Claims Preparer to receive information on the claimant’s
claim, the GCCF will send a copy of each letter to that Claims Preparer.
