“The Big Lie” BP Claims Quick Pays

BP Claims and Seafood Harvesters

BP ClaimsWe have been hearing form a large number of Seafood Harvesters that took Quick Pays for their BP Claims, many of you were told it was an Interim payment when you were met at the dock by members of the GCCF. As we have been writing about this over the last few days, we have been hearing from many of you, and it seems that a pattern is developing, you were often met at your docks, and many of you were told the Quick Pays were Interim payments.

It almost seems the GCCF was targeting you all, because they knew that your BP Claims would eventually have the most value. Even if you were not targeted in such a manner, it is obvious that they did target Seafood Harvesters, crabbers, shrimpers, oystermen, and fishermen, when it came time dole out the Quick Pays, preying on the people that were most affected by the Oil Spill.

BP Claims Interims turned to Quick Pays                                      (a Little GCCF History Lesson)

If you all remember November 2010 when Mr. Feinberg took over we were all expecting people that were hurt by the Spill to start getting Interim BP Claims. What really happened was that they had another agenda and that was to get people to take BP Claims Quick Pays as the program was quickly rolled out by mid-December 2010, and NO or very few Interim Claims were being paid.

We did not even hear of an Interim Claim getting paid until mid April, and even after that they were few and far between. What does that mean, that means they had to have the Quick Pay Apparatus in play before Mr.Feinberg even took over the GCCF, they just didn`t tell us that part. Putting a BP Claims Quick Pay system in place takes more then a month, at least as far as I can tell, by judging  the History that we can now look at called the BP Claims Process.

So all that being said from November through April, and even long after that, that is 6 months plus people were either starved out or forced to take Quick Pays and that NEEDS to be addressed in the BP Settlement. It wasn`t till early February 2011  that Feinberg couldn`t call himself independent anymore, it took a Judges Order to get him to stop, at the very least anyone who took Quick Pays during the time Feinberg was calling himself independent deserves a second shot. Over 200,000 people and businesses took Quick Pays, if the BP Claims process was processing Interim Claims as they promised this would not have happened.

They pulled a fast one on all of us, they promised Interim Claims and gave us Quick Pays, and it is my strong belief backed up by their own actions this was deliberate. This needs to be handled within the terms of the BP Settlement, or it needs to be handled by The Court.

BP Claims Settlement and what to do next

If you have been impacted in such a manner we want to hear from you, we can`t do anything to help you if we don`t know who you are. We are Advocating that the members that are making up the BP Settlement include your claims into the settlement, especially the BP Claims Quick Pays from Seafood Harvesters.

BP Claims Settlement Concerns

BP Claims Quick Pays need to Be Addressed

BP ClaimsNow we have been an advocate for the BP Claims Settlement because we know many of you need help after the GCCF so miserably failed, but we have some concerns about settling your BP Claims and they need to be voiced. After a few weeks to digest the BP Claims Settlement this much has come to light. We have been talking to literally 1000`s of you.

BP and the GCCF had a plan from the very beginning to weed out and pay out as little as possible by dragging their feet and getting as many of you to sign Quick Pays as they could, and have no compunction of letting those who signed Quick Pays back to the table through the BP Claims Settlement, many of you are in the hardest hit industries, such as shrimping.

This is tragic, as homes went into foreclosure, and boats and cars were being repossessed, people were economically forced to take these Quick Pays, and that was all part of their plan, and finally when the BP Claims Settlement is about to take place, and it looks like you are finally going to be treated fairly, the last thing they want is this group back at the table. Shame on you BP. If you truly want to make things right treat everybody fairly.

The BP Settlement looks like a good thing for most people and Business, but for those that make a living from the Gulf, it stinks.

Nobody knows what the heck is going to happen in the years to come, we all know most catches are down across the boards, people are calling our oysters, “Oilsters”, stone crab catches are down dramatically, some shrimp catches are down by over 90%, and this is just the beginning of the fallout from the worst man made disaster in history.

As all of this is happening BP and the GCCF have been dragging their feet when it come to paying your BP Claims.

Who should Consider the BP Claims Settlement

If your Industry is not contingent upon with the Direct Health of the Gulf of Mexico and you live outside of the Areas that were most  impacted by the Oil Spill, the BP Claims Settlement is pretty much a no brainer for you.

For example if you are a Realtor in Sarasota County,  the waters of the Gulf seem to not have been affected there, strongly consider the the BP Settlement.

If you are a Shrimper out of Lafourche Parish in Louisiana we simply need more data then we currently have, and if you can economically afford it, wait it out, odds are you can`t, and many of you already took the BP Claims Quick Pays to save your houses and your boats, and you should have never had to do that, and you should at the very least, be able to be a part of the BP Claims Settlement.

As the BP Claims process has been going on, the price of gas has steadily increased, and by the time the settlement is done the gas prices will offset the penalties and the money that BP had to pay for its negligence.

The BP Claims process under Feinberg was a joke and everybody knows it, except it was a joke on Us the American people, and our President allowed it to be perpetuated. Sad but true. By the time anyone got around to doing anything about it, it will be 2 years later.

BP Claims Settlement Why?

Why do we all HAVE to settle anyway, why can`t people just get paid for what they have lost so far and a little extra for pain and suffering, wasn`t the original intent for them to pay Interim Claims, that`s right, about the time they were suppose to pay Interim Claims they hit us with the Quick Pay scam.

The fact is everybody affected right now should be getting Interim BP Claims money, but instead the Interim Claims were thwarted by the GCCF and Feinberg. We shouldn`t even be talking about about a BP Claims Settlement, we should be studying the true extent of the damage and coming up with ways to fix it.

So now they are finally going to come up with a bunch of cash before we know ALL the facts, and that`s suppose to cure everything. Tell that to our children, and our children’s children. As cancer rates begin to shoot up across the Gulf, especially with those exposed to Corexit, just as it happened in Alaska.

All of this is happening while people are dying, yes dying from the oil and the dispersant Corexit that was suppose to clean up this mess. The EPA even told BP not to use the toxic dispersant, but BP went right along and still used it, when there were several other organic alternatives available.

I  can not tell you how many people we hear from on a daily basis whose health has been RUINED by the use of Corexit during the Oil Spill Clean Up process, and there was never any remedy for that in the BP Claims process until now in the BP Claims Settlement Program. I am glad to see that those suffering from medical complications will finally see some relief, but can you really put a price on it.

The BP Settlement will help a lot of people, but why do we have to settle now, why not just give us what you owe us, and when we know the true extent, then Settle with Us, in years to come it will come to light that many settled on the cheap just like the people who took the Quick Pays did, remember it took  THREE YEARS for the true extent of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill to be felt environmentally and economically.

To this day only 15% percent of the Herring ever came back to Prince Edward Sound. So they are aiming at ending the BP Claims and BP Claims Settlement to be done in about 3 Years, don`t you think that is rather ironic. It took 3 years just to figure out what was going on the last time we had a tragedy like this, and that one pales in size and comparison.

The fact is the BP Settlement is the best many of our legal minds, could to come up with. They would not have been put in this position had BP and the GCCF been fair about paying Interim Claims. There are groups of highly skilled Attorneys doing battle for Us in New Orleans as I write this, and it is appreciated, many of them work with us.

It looks like the BP Claims Settlement will be made available for many to see in the very near future. It even looks like it will help a lot of people and businesses, but it`s forgetting to address the people that were on the environmental and economic front lines, those that were making a living from the bounty of the Gulf, and did not have the savings in place to make it 2 years before the BP Claims Settlement took place.

Remember that the Gulf is a Renewable Resource what price tag  can be put on it when the word Renewable is taken out of it, I`ll tell you what it is, PRICELESS, and that`s why they want to settle within 3 years.

BP Claims Settlement and BP Claims News

BP Claims Ready for the BP Settlement

BP Claims Process in Transition

Many businesses and individuals already have their BP Claims information together. Most people have their tax information for 2008, 2009, and 2010, you should also get 2007 ready for your BP Settlement Claims. If you have not taken your final for your BP Claims we advise that you don`t at this time, nor should you take a quick pay.

The BP Claims Settlement promises to be much more lucrative then what the GCCF would have given most people. If your BP Claims are at the GCCF they will give you 60% of what is owed and withhold the 40% until after the BP Settlement is underway.

BP Claims and BP Settlement Updates

Many processors and attorneys are seeing many of the BP Claims they had at the GCCF being denied right now. We spoke to one processor yesterday in the Tampa area who had over 100 claims get denied for a myriad of issues. He had an 88% success rate before this occurred.

Therefore many BP Claims are just being documented right now and Consultants and Attorneys are holding off filing them until the BP Settlement process gets underway, and the actual terms are disclosed and not just rumor.

BP Claims and the BP Settlement Process

The big question here is what will be the final calculations for your BP Claims in the BP Settlement process. You may have Business Interruption Claims as well.

We have been consistently hearing of a baseline of 3 times your 2010 losses. We have also heard that you will take your 3 consecutive worst months in 2010 and then look at those same months in 2007, 2008, 2009, or double up certain years for the same months and subtract those numbers to find your loss then multiply by 3 and add future trending losses.

Mind you this is just one aspect of the BP Claims Settlement process, but to many it is the most important. The 3 times multiplier will be larger for certain Industries.

We will Help you Organize your BP Claims for the BP Settlement

We  are here to assist you with any of your BP Claims needs. Some claims will need the assistance of an Attorney, some will just need the help of a BP Claims consultant. We work with different groups of Attorneys and BP Claims Consultants because each group is uniquely qualified to handle certain aspects of the Settlement or the pending litigation. It is in your best interest to have your BP Claims with the group that can best represent your BP Claims.
