BPClaims.org Team (1) BP (0)
Recently, we got an Appeal from BP for one of our clients claims. That`s right BP appealed a Settlement Claim that was originally approved by the Settlement Fund. Needles to say our client was not happy, and nor were we.
We went through the process on the behalf of the client, it was arduous, but in the end we prevailed. I am very proud of our Team and the efforts they made on behalf of this client.
It looks as though BP has begun to employ this strategy more often, if you need help with an Appeal, please let us know.
Banner Week for Getting BP Settlement Claims Paid.
Last week was a big week for getting claims paid for us, we had over 15 BP Claims paid. This has been a long time coming, but well worth the wait. The claims ranged from Business Claims in the Keys to VOO Claims in Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi; they came in from a few months to a few weeks ago. It seems the people that are running the DeepWater Horizon Settlement are getting into a higher gear.
Attorneys are gearing up for OPA Presentment
We are hearing that many attorneys are not taking any new claims in at this time because they are devoting their assets/people to OPA presentment. Claims that are being presented to OPA, (opt out claims and excluded claims), must be presented by January 20th, 2013.
This basically means it is crunch time for the firms that have caseloads of OPA claims that need to be re-presented and recalculated. If you have a claim that meets this criteria they need to be addressed sooner then later.
Old GCCF Claims
What many people do not realize, is that claims under the old GCCF need to be updated to fit into the Settlement. If you have a claim that has yet to be updated we will see what we can do to help you. There are hundreds of thousands of claims that still need to be updated.
BP Business Claims
Under the terms of the BP Settlement many Businesses that did not know they qualified under the old GCCF rules, do qualify under the DeepWater Horizon Settlement. If you think your Business may qualify under the terms of the new settlement, or just have a few questions, please call 1-800-BP-CLAIM.
We have had many business owners send us their P n L`s to see if they qualify, we have no problem checking first to see if your business qualifies before submitting to the Fund.
