As I thought, the Trump numbers would be much better then we had been told by the media. Does this remind anyone of flow rates on the bottom of the Gulf.
Donald Trump Leads Hilary Clinton by almost 3-1 in The BPClaims.org poll.
Just Under 10,000 people received an email almost 700 responded. Those are fantastic results.
It covers a wide spectrum of ethnicity and incomes, it was a solid sample set.
But the numbers we hear are much different, and they definitely remind me of an Oil Spill when Barak Obama was our President, and Hillary Clinton voted for the Gulf of Mexico Energy Bill “after the bill passed,” BP obtained the fateful permit to drill that resulted in the deadly and costly tragedy.
I JUST think we all need to remember that right now.
That all being said, God Bless, and Be Well.
From Bill Bohack and Company
BPClaims.org Presidential Poll
By Us for You, because somebody had to.
Since we decided along time ago, basically day 1, this was not just going to be about the money for us, we decided it was time to tackle some other issues.
This is just the beginning.
So it was time to go in some new directions, and what could be more timely then these Presidential Elections.
Lets face it Obama did not do a stellar job of how he handled the oil spill, and many people still blame Hillary for a number of fatal flaws whether National or International in scope. With Wikileaks getting drowned out by locker room talk, we really need to reevaluate a few things.
But the Biggest Issue I have seen and heard about from others is the lack of impartiality from the Media outlets. We live in a FREE country, but that comes with consequences, and when big companies feel threatened, they put their advertising dollars in action, and support the news outlets that support their candidates.
For instance CNN has been nicknamed the Clinton News Network.
Is this really the America we want, and would campaign caps really help.
Now I am not saying I am pro Trump, but I am pro fairness, and after what I have seen with the outcomes for many regarding the BP Oil Spill, things need to be fixed, but that`s for another Blog.
I thought that we had a pretty good sample set as the victims of the oil spill has everyone from clean up workers to business owners, and those in between.
With all of the Media Bias, we figured it was best if we came out with our own.
We will publish the results as they come in,
This election has identified the brutal agendas some Candidates and Corporations have collaborated in to pushing their profit margins, ahead of you the American people.

If you are getting hit with incomplete notices, take them seriously, if you are asking for extensions they are not as easy to obtain, it seems that the patience and understanding of DHECC is coming to an understanding end in some cases.
If you need help we will see what members of our Network can do for you based upon your specific needs. Just call 1-800-BP-CLAIM or 1-800-272-5246.
It is even more helpful if you can fill out the form to the right so your information can be sent directly to the participating partner best suited for you.
Haliburton or HESI Claims are coming soon,
We will be devoting a full page or 2 that outlines the new program and gives you an overview of who is viable, and what to do, or what not to do in many cases.
We are also hearing from many people who are seriously sick and frustrated with the BP Medical Settlement. The number of people that we have been talking with, have different types of cancer, many of these cancers are not at all common and has greatly increased, and I think it will for some time. If you have a Medical Claim you can reach them directly at 1-877-545-5111.
As the BP Claims continue to settle we are seeing many attorneys and others involved begin to squabble or settle amicably over payments owed between the parties. Many attorneys and others involved in the BP Settlement deferred payments to each other until the claims were paid.
A certain Attorney based out of Venice, Florida, not only fired many of her clients, but cut a side deal with another law firm to still get paid from claimants she had released, now that`s shady.
For us We always put people before profits, the job is nearing an end for many economically, but environmentally I think we have just begun to see the true ramifications.
We lo0k forward to hearing from you, please don`t hesitate to email Bill@BPClaims.org.
People are Selling their Claims. If you have a BP Claim and you want to sell it there are buyers..
Institutional BP Claims buyers are Specializing claims over 3m, claim purchases of 50m-100m are not uncommon.
The Claimant traditionally gets 25% upfront and varied portions when the claims close, it is done on case by case basis.
If you have a BP Business Claim that exceeds 3 Million Dollars and have an interest in the above mentioned program please call 941-228-1605 and ask for John Mueller.
There are several other BP Claims programs out there, where the institutions are buying blocks of claims directly from the Attorneys or processors, we hear of bits and pieces of these programs, but are not as familiar with the one we first described.
The buying and selling of mass tort claims is nothing new, it`s more like of just another piece of the process. At this point in time the BP Claims Process has now gained credibility, and with that the attention of hedge fund managers and the like.
In the end, the decisions are yours, may you make the best of them.
We would like to say Thank You to a certain benefactor for all of the Sarasota sports equipment given to the kids.
Please Note: We are not the Deep Water Horizon Settlement
The number for them is 1-866-992-6174 for the economic settlement.
For the Medical Settlement the number is 1-877-545-5111
If You want to read about us, and our thoughts, please read below, we are not attorneys but do process claims through a network of processors, that are getting results.
If you are an Attorney/ Processor/Claimant we have a silver bullet, one of the members of our network has distinguished themselves above all others with practically Dead On Calculations that the claims analysts at The Deep Water Horizon Settlement seem to respect and agree with.
Please understand this group specializes in business claims only in excess of 100k usually.
They also handle appeals.
As many of you know we have been in search of a Silver Bullet for some time. Well we found it, there is no guess work anymore.
It is my opinion, it is owed to the claimants that they remain the top priority, not just a potential revenue stream for someone’s bottom line.
When BP stopped paying claims due to the Court ordered Stay, the lack of reliable and consistent revenue stream caused many processors and Attorneys to scale down their Deepwater Horizon claims operations and to terminate employees.
The real tragedy was that some of those entities had to close their businesses or to continue with inefficient operations.
The Court ordered Stay lasted for a period of 8 months – 8 months of little to no income for the claims processing entities and 8 months of continued economic distress for the claimants.
The Stay caused claimants extreme dissatisfaction and anger and proved to be devastating to many Business Economic Loss claimants. It also caused many groups processing claims to go out of Business
Our own operation took a serious hit when BP stopped paying claims, but we never gave up and due to the nature of how we structured our network, we were blessed that one member started seeing our largest claims get settled first.
The first claim was over 4.5 million dollars.
This particular processor has had over 40 claims paid to our clients since they began paying again, and their calculations have been almost dead on. This particular processor has a system in place that works. Not only do they have CPA’s and analysts who thoroughly understand the claim calculations and methodology established by the Deepwater Horizon Settlement and the appeals that followed, they go one step further and direct each and every claimant to obtain an attorney to represent them with any and all legal issues/questions and appeals.
I recently met one of the attorneys who works with this processor’s claimants, and can state that she has extensive experience in every phase of the BP litigation and she has the talent to represent and assist claimants at every phase (from claim registration to post appeal issues) of the claims process.
You can move your claim
This is not meant to solicit claims away from other Attorneys or Processors, but people need to know they are not stuck with organizations that have a high level of ineptitude and a small to nonexistent success rate. The form is called an AR1 form, it`s one form and can be found here. AR1 Form
If you have a claim that you have tried to do yourself, but want to put it in experienced hands, the processor described above is actually the BEST in our Network at complex business claims.
If your claim is already in the system and it is reasonably put together you may be charged as little as 10 Percent of the value of the claim.
If you are an Attorney or a Processor and would like to move over your portfolio or part of your portfolio of claims they will negotiate a fair number for the work involved. They can also assist you with the processing.
If you are an Attorney/Processor/CPA Firm and need help. they can help you.
It`s time to get People Paid and there is no room for mistakes.
As I write this we have seen some of our largest claims processed and paid in the last month. Most of these claims are over a million dollars, others in the high 6 digit range. We have also seen the devastating affect that rule 495 can have on claims, and how some rulings can be successfully appealed while others can not.
BP has just settled with the states, local and Federal government.
Claims that are currently in the Deep Water Horizon Settlement system, will have one FINAL opportunity to be paid.
There is no room for error, but as we have begun taking over claims from other Processors/Attorneys/Claimants who started doing this years ago, it is easy to see why so many of you have not been paid.
The financials that many uploaded are atrocious. Many just downloaded reams of financials thinking that would be sufficient or that they would get claims paid by just overwhelming the Deep Water Horizon Settlement with voluminous amounts of paperwork, thinking that they would let them sift through the documents so they could do the calculations.
Others just kept supplying the same paperwork and expected different answers when tasked with an incomplete notices.
PLEASE UNDERSTAND THIS THERE IS NO ROOM FOR MISTAKES.
And far too many of you were making huge mistakes when you put these claims together, many in the beginning just did not understand what the settlement asked for. These claims are typically 2 years or older.
This is not the time to throw stuff against the wall and see what sticks, nor was it ever, but it is what too many did in the beginning.
If your claim has NOT seen notices or questions coming from the Deep Water Horizon Settlement and you have not heard from your Attorney or Processor, you need to take matters into your own hands and check your status yourself. Go to CHECK MY STATUS you will need your claimant id number and the last 4 of your social security number.
We look forward to working with You, your Attorneys or Processors, and getting you what you deserve from BP.
We have a program in place that allows us to assist others in this business to get their clients claims paid, it`s fair, it`s flexible, and it helps you get your clients paid.
For us this was always about putting the victims first and creating a network of professionals to assist you.
We are proud to say that a certain member of our Network has distinguished themselves in our opinion as the BEST in The BP Business Claims Business, and the good news is they want to work for you and with you, and still can, but only if you let them.
We are also proud to announce that Dick Angelotti the former President of Bank of Boston, and Northern Trust, will be also picking up the phone personally to help you with complex business matters.
Call Us at 1-800-BP-CLAIM or 1-800-272-5246
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.
The BP Claims Settlement is Back On and time is running out..
Emails and letters are being sent by the leadership of the Settlement in mass.
However, the deadline to file of June 8 is fast approaching and requires immediate action.
We have found that many claimants have fallen through the cracks when indeed they had a justifiable business claim.
This was either due to mishandling by certain claims professionals or the confusion created by the complicated, and to some, misleading filing process.
If you wish to get professional help to revive and old claim, or move your claim from one processor to another or yourself, all you need to use is an AR1 form. here is a link to one.
If an Attorney/Processor has done their job, expect them to lien the file.
Judge Barbier has not taken kindly to Attorneys/Processors liening files that he found to have little or know time in.
The claimants still have RIGHTS, and need to know what they can do to keep their claims alive.
The mishandling of claims from certain vendors inside the settlement can not be ignored.
In my opinion hiring people unskilled in this process was a huge detriment to the whole settlement, and it is my belief, it intentionally was meant to thwart the whole process, and Pat Juneau and his staff became targets for trying to fix it, and thank God they did to a large degree by bringing in some very good processors and reworking the mess that was handed to them.
To check your claims status go to
https://www2.deepwaterhorizoneconomicsettlement.com/un-secure/Claimantstatus.aspx and have your claim number and the last 4 digits of your social security or ein number for your business available.
How BP Claims got lost in the shuffle
When the claims process was switched from GCCF to Deep Water Horizon, many claimants never fully transferred to the new process. Their information did, but needed forms, that to many looked like junk mail, were thrown in the trash.
Those claims can be brought back to life, your documents are still there.
The amount of people that had filed through the GCCF before transitioning over to the New DeepWater Horizon Settlement was around 1 Million.
The amount of claims ever filed with DeepWater far, far less.
The claim process was then halted during the Deepwater Horizon Settlement by Delay tactics by BP.
New rules like 495 and smoothing and matching tests were added.
What happened in many experts opinions is that 25% or so of what were thought to be solid claims will be ineligible, and will be documented to death.
What also happened was that the connection between the oil spill no longer applied for most Business Economic Loss Claims.
If your Business Claim meets the V Trend model for your zone you could get paid.
You just have to show a loss in 2010 for 90 or more consecutive days versus the same period in 2009, and an upswing for the same 90 or plus days in 2011. These ups and downs that make the V-Trend are different for every zone, and there are exceptions.
If you can also demonstrate you had even better numbers in 2007 and 2008 during those same 90 plus days you can also bring those years into the equation.
The critical dates in determining a loss are from 4/20/10 ( the day of the spill) to 11/31/10. for more on the V Trend go here.
You will need monthly p and l`s and tax records for the years and the time periods you use to substantiate your claim.
At this point in time keeping good records is a must to qualify for the settlement. Many of those records are still sitting in the DeepWater Database and just need to be revived.
If your records are just sitting in limbo we can Help.
There is still time to reactivate these suspended files , we can help.
It has been our experience that so many of these business claims with denied statuses, are still viable. Let us hear from you today if you would like our help.
Don’t leave money on the table for BP that is yours!
Claims are getting paid Now.
Recently our firm assisted in getting a 4 million dollar plus claim paid, we have also helped some smaller businesses see 20k-500k in paid BP Claims very recently.
We process claims, and we have the largest claims processing network in the country.
So if you need help call 1-800-BP-CLAIM or 1-800-272-5246

BP Claims News by Bill Bohack
BP Claims begin to get Paid
The good news is we are seeing a steady stream of claims begin to get paid this week.
The bad news is, claims calculations and the adoption of rule 495 seem to leave many processors and cpa`s scratching their heads.
We have been told by people inside of the BP Settlement that it took longer then expected because all of the claims had to be recalculated for 495.
BP Claims Appeals are looming.
Lot`s of appeals. If you need to speak to a bp claims appeal attorney please fill out the form to the right.
BP and the Supreme Court
The Supreme Court meets on BP Today?
Supposedly there is a very quiet meeting between the Supreme Court Justices today.
The issue at hand is whether or not they will hear BP`s case. Some suggest the only reason they would hear it is to put a halt to BP`s frivolous appeals agenda. Delay, Deny and Defend, BP we ALL fully understand your agenda.
At this point in time, it still is what it is, an ever changing playing field that is lately tilting in BP`s favor. I know some people on Gravier Street in New Orleans are doing their best, and hopefully this a trickle of the claims we are seeing get paid becomes a deluge but only time will tell.
We have spoken to several processors in the last 24 hours and they have all experienced a spike in claims getting paid.
Let`s hope that continues.
we would like to thank the fine people at Crestview Motors for their continued support.
