BP Claims The Final Round
Most processors have stopped taking on BP Claims, we haven`t but you have to have all your information together and be ready to expedite it directly over to us.
Our number is 1-800-BP-CLAIM if you need Help
If you want to call the settlement directly call 1-866-992-6174 or go to DeepWaterHorizonSettlements.com, we encourage that too.
If you would like help processing your claim after the 8th we will be happy to help you, but you need to be filed with Deep Water that is the most important step right now.
The attorneys we work with are available if your claim documentation is in order.
Recently we have seen lots of emails from the heads of the PSC that definitively speak about having the claims that are being entered at this time to be complete, we agree with that, but in speaking with one of our liaisons at Deep Water he wrote us this.
You must submit a completed and signed Claim Form on or before Midnight (Prevailing Central Time) on June 8, 2015. You should submit all required documentation in support of your claim at that time. If the Claims Administrator finds that your claim is incomplete for a Registration Form, or documentation necessary to complete the review of the claim, the Settlement Program will notify you of that determination by email or mail at the address you provided in your Claim Form. That notification letter will provide you with instructions for how to make your claim complete and will provide a specific deadline by which you must respond.
Keep in mind how the time of filing a Claim Form is measured. The Claims Administrator applies these rules:
- Claim Form filed online on a DWH Portal or by email: Timely if submitted online or emailed by midnight Central Prevailing Time on the filing deadline date.
- Claim Form filed in a Claimant Assistance Center: Timely if done in a Claimant Assistance Center before the Center closes on the deadline date. The Claimant Assistance Centers will remain open until midnight prevailing central time (1:00 a.m. eastern time) on June 8, 2015, to accept claim forms and documentation submitted in support of claims. After June 8, 2015, you may continue to visit the Claimant Assistance Centers during normal business hours from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time until June 19, 2015, on which date the centers will permanently close to the public.
- Claim Form filed by U.S. Mail: Timely if postmarked on or before the filing deadline date.
- Claim Form filed by personal delivery: Timely if delivered on or before the filing deadline date.
The key word here being should, so in an effort to accommodate as many of you as possible, if your business claim passes our screening process, we will do everything we can, to get your Business Claims in before the deadline.
We strongly suggest that You ALL check the status of your BP Claims by going here, as many claims were dropped during the stay, many of you were refiled, some with your knowledge, but many with out your knowledge, by the Groups handling your claims.
Many were just dropped.
Read the articles below about The Refiles.
Many of you just don`t know, and the best place to go is the check your status page on the Deep Water Horizon Settlement website.
If you are unsure, contact whoever is processing your claims, I strongly suggest you check there first.
However if you did not opt out, and feel you have a bp claim that is viable, and you have checked you status, you may want to file your claim yourself before the 8th.
These decisions are yours, and I am not an Attorney.
Best of Luck and God`s Speed.
