GCCF and BP Claims Develpoments
The GCCF is Being Sued for BP Claims Delay
The Florida Lawsuit claims that BP Claims are not being paid in a timely fashion in an effort to starve the claimants so that they will accept just a miniscule amount of what they are actually owed.The Attorney points out something we have said for months on this blog that BP is using a Delay, Deny, Defend Strategy.
Feinberg has been under heavy fire from Plaintiffs Attorneys as well as the Attorney Generals from the states bordering the Gulf of Mexico. The fact remains that only a fraction of Interim Claims have been paid, and these were the initial solution that would give time for people and business`s to evaluate the devastating effects fro the BP Oil Spill. Instead of helping people put their Interim Claims together they came up with the BP Claims Quick Pay, which for all intensive purposes, was used as a mechanism to give starving claimants a fraction of what was owed, while they signed off their rights to sue BP.
Lets Look at what officials have BP Claims Issues
Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange said the GCCF payments “do not amount to much” and Alabama residents have been “reduced to begging for handouts from an organization … whose primary missions seems to be turning them down.”
Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood filed a request that Barbier intervene in the GCCF process.
The Gulf States of Alabama, Mississippi, Florida and Louisiana have all criticized Feinberg and the GCCF, on how they have handled your BP Claims.
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and Attorney General Buddy Caldwell wrote a memo criticizing Feinberg and said he was not complying with the Oil Pollution Act known as OPA.
Now there is an Audit underway led by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.
Recent GCCF and BP Claims Developments
Recently several groups that receive your information from the Review Form on the right have met with Mr. Feinberg and other officials at the GCCF. The GCCF and Mr Feinberg has made them a lot of promises as they went over your BP Claims. Over the course of the next few days one of the leading Attorneys that has literally thousands of BP Claims many of them coming from this site, will be sitting down trying to settle as many BP Claims as they can. It is my hope that they have great success and settle as many BP Claims as possible and people actually get their BP Claims paid.
I have met with Mike Rosen myself, he is Ken Feinberg`s law partner, we had a nice, very informative conversation, that was over 6 months ago. I walked away thinking that these guys care and really want to help people. The fact remains the BP Claims process would not have all of the above mentioned critics including me if it was working properly.
As my Grandfather always said, Actions speak louder then Words.
Now a little word of advice to the GCCF stop talking, and just pay people`s BP Claims
