When will BP Stop Trying to delay the BP Settlement?
BP is at it again. After twice asking for a halt on all payments until the internal investigation within the BP settlement has concluded, Judge Barbier has ordered the BP Claims Administrator to respond to BP’s most recent request by August 26,2013.
If BP’s request is granted, payments to all claimants will be halted indefinitely. This is just what BP is hoping for.
Dirty Deeds Being done in the BP Settlement
We believe that certain Attorneys are trying to put an end to the settlement so they have the ability to litigate in court and charge 30-40% fees to claimants. In reality all the claimants want is a fair BP settlement and justice for their families and communities. Some attorneys on the other hand want as much of a cut they can get.
We also believe BP is trying to end the settlement, even though they are the ones that set it up with terms and guidelines to which they had previously agreed. BP has now seen that their initial projections of the actual dollar amount to be contributed to the BP settlement on their behalf were probably far too low. They are paying out more than they ever expected to, and they are not happy.
Are BP and certain attorneys working together to dissolve the settlement? We don’t know, but it does seem that they have a common interest; MONEY.

The BP Settlement is Under Review
For many of you the words under review are reminders of the GCCF, but the fact is the BP Settlement is being reviewed by Attorneys, Adjusters and Advocacy Groups. The BP Settlement on the whole is favorable for the people it was meant to serve.
The general idea of the BP Settlement is meant to serve the greatest good for the largest amount of people possible.
Our major concern under the BP Settlement continues to be the 2.3 billion dollar cap for Seafood Harvesters, they of all should not have a cap under the BP Settlement.

BP Settlement Attorneys or Adjusters
We work with Attorneys and Licensed Adjusters that will help you with your BP Settlement Claims, in many instances we recommend using an Adjuster because of their expertise and history of documenting claims as the first step, if during the process of putting together your file for the BP Settlement they think their could be issues, they may recommend the services of an Attorney.
We are not anti Attorney in anyway, we just feel strongly that Licensed Adjusters have more experience documenting these types of claims, it`s what they do for a living.
When a Hurricane comes through the first people in are the Adjusters that begin to document the economic and physical losses in its aftermath. Due to the nature of the Oil Spill it closely resembles the aftermath of a hurricane. Think of the BP Settlement Fund as an insurance company, do you need an Attorney to handle your insurance claim, only if you are having an issue getting paid by the insurance company. Even though the Settlement is court supervised our Licensed Adjusters have made arrangements for Attorney Representation if needed. So unless it looks like you are going to have issues with your BP Settlement, why pay for the services of an Attorney. Our Licensed Adjusters have retained the services of Attorneys and have CPA`s on staff.
Though in certain circumstances BP Settlement Attorneys are needed and we are happy to utilize them.
