BP Settlement: Its time to get YOUR BP Claims Paid

The BP Settlement is for Real

bp settlement We are happy to report that claims of ALL sizes and Industries that are covered under the BP Settlement are either getting offers, or going Under Review.

One of our Consultants/Adjusters that has around 300 claims submitted under the Settlement, has had over 15 come under review in the last week, others are getting offers on a consistent basis.

This time Under Review is certainly a step in the Right direction, under the GCCF it was a joke. Claims sizes ranged from 10k-700k, and covered individual claims,fishermen claims, Voo Claims, and business claims.

This is great news, we thought the new BP Settlement fund would just start at the smaller claims and work their way up, there were early indications that`s what they were doing, a few weeks into it there are new signs, all sorts of claims are receiving offers, and they are coming in on a regular basis.

Have you updated your GCCF claim so it meets the requirements of the BP Settlement

Under the terms of the BP Settlement, if you had a BP Claim under the GCCF, you will need to update some information and pass some financial tests. It is important to update this information so your claim can meet the new requirements. If you would like help we have Access to a fantastic group of Claims Adjusters and CPA`s who specialize in the BP Settlement.

They have over 300 trained CPA`s and a whole division specializing in the BP settlement led by the Best BP Claims Adjuster in the Country, at least in my estimation.

Their fess are 15%.

They Can Help You With

  • Claims that were still at the GCCF and not updated for the Settlement
  • Business Claims
  • Individual Claims
  • Seafood Compensation Claims
  • Voo Claims
  • Property Claims
  • New Claims

The BP Settlement still has along way to go

Its still going to take awhile for people to become believers. There are still some major obstacles, and many of them have merit.

Pam Bondi has a valid point that more of Florida should be covered.

Quick Pays need to be readdressed because what happened there was heinous.

Attorneys looking to opt out their entire case loads, especially if the opt out deadline is not extended. Lets face it it takes time to put these claims together.

We all want this to work,  Mr. Juneau and his staff have a lot of work ahead of them.

This all pales in comparison to what happened to the people, well it`s time for folks to get paid, and the time seems to be now.

Our Ajuster/CPA Group charges a 15% contingency fee to help you with your BP Settlement.

1,100 Offers sent on Friday by the BP Settlement Fund

The BP Settlement sent out it`s first Offers

bp settlementIt has been reported that over 1,110 BP Settlement offers went out Friday, this is big news. It looks as though The New BP Settlement Fund headed by Patrick Juneau and supervised by Judge Barbier are actually going to make sure the job gets done.

In our estimation they are ahead of schedule, there were a few errors in the beginning, but the numbers look promising.

The average BP Settlement offer was around 44k.

We are not jumping for joy just yet, but it is promising.

If you would like Help filing your BP Claims we can Help you, we usually charge just 15% of what you recover, we are not related to the Court Supervised Settlement in any way.

We Can Help You File Your Claims if:

  • You have never Filed a Claim
  • Your Claim is Stalled at the GCCF
  • Your Claim has been Denied

Is the BP Settlement going to be a Gulf Coast Stimulus Package

If you all remember the economic shape our region was in after the real estate bubble burst in 2006, 2007, 2008,and 2009, were tough years, it wasn`t till the  beginning of 2010 that the Gulf Coast began to feel an uptick in the overall economy. The BP oil spill on 4/20/10 put an end to that recovery for many.

It would not be till mid 2012 that many would get the sense the economy was moving in the right direction  again. The BP Settlement by many is looked at as a Gulf Coast Stimulus Package, and indeed it could serve as such for the businesses that survived, and make it right for the ones that did not.

In all reality the BP Oil Spill thwarted the comeback our economy was making in 2010, and should pay for what they did.

Quick Pays, Quick Pays, Quick Pays and the BP Settlement

We all know that Quick Pays have not been addressed in the BP Settlement, they need to be.

We have heard from more then 20,000 people and businesses since this site has been up, over 200,000 people took Quick Pays.

Quick Pays were presented under Feinberg, when we all expected Interim Claims to begin. Interim Claims would have paid people while the true extent of the damage was equated, Quick Pays, a mechanism that was never mentioned until Feinberg took over, became the standard.

They were a travesty, and many are feeling it now, especially the fishermen.

  • Catches of Brown shrimp are down over 90%,
  •  Blue Crabs are dying on their way to the market,
  • Oyster harvesters are harvesting just 15%-25% of what they would usually bring in.
  • These people were the first target of the Quick Pays, and they are experiencing the greatest ramifications.

We have often been told that representatives of the GCCF would meet these people at the docks and tell them they needed to sign these documents to get the 25k or 5k from the GCCF, many did, not realizing that they gave up their rights to sue BP for future damages. Many business owners took the Quick Pay so they could stay in business or pay the mortgage. People were held economic hostages by the GCCF.

The BP Settlement or some other mechanism needs to address this. Quick Pays preyed upon people, Feinberg worked for BP, he proclaimed himself independent, it took a Judges order to stop him saying he was independent.

Doesn`t it make sense that a Claims Administrator declaring himself INPEPENDENT when in fact he was paid by BP, and starving people out, forcing them to take Quick Pays, caused more then just confusion.

Feinberg has caused an ongoing economic disaster for many, and it needs to be fixed.

DeepWater Horizon Settlement Begins to Pay

The DeepWater Horizon Settlement has Begun to make Offers

deepwater horizon settlementIt has been reported by several sources that the DeepWater Horizon Settlement Fund has begun to make offers, most of these have been made to people with Vessels of Opportunity Claims.

We told you last week we suspected that they would start with these, they have.

Also known as VOO Claims, these are for the boats that were under Master Charter Vessel Agreements, that went out to help clean up the oil spill. It has been reported that over 7,000 people signed these agreements. Many of the people that manned these vessels are also sick from the dispersant Corexit 9500, and have multiple claims.

Many Businesses in Southwest Florida now Qualify under the DeepWater Horizon Settlement

With the exit of the GCCF, and the entrance of the DeepWater Horizon Settlement, many Businesses and Individuals in SW. Florida are finding that they do indeed qualify under the new BP Settlement.

It is being referred to by some as “The Gulf Coast Stimulus Package”.

Businesses particularly that show a dip in 2010 after the oil spill, and an uptick in 2011, can most often claim their piece of the BP Claims Pie, and who doesn`t like pie.

Many of the Islands in South West Florida are labeled Zone A, that means that the individuals and businesses in these zones qualify for a 3.5 x their 2010 losses. The DeepWater Horizon RTP is 2.5 for these areas.

If your county touches the Gulf, and you or your business was impacted by the Oil Spill different multipliers will apply depending upon what type of business you are in or worked for.

The terms of the BP Settlement are much more clear then when the GCCF was in charge. Remember this is a Court Supervised Settlement, Judge Barbier and Patrick Juneau ” The Claims Administrator” are taking this very seriously. This go round people and businesses are going to be PAID.

BPClaims.org brings on a new Team Member for the BP Settlement

BP Settlement News…Judge Barbier Orders Us to Post Disclaimers

A recent order coming from Judge Barbier has ordered us to post Disclaimers stating that: This is not the Official Court Authorized Website. Go to www.deepwaterhorizonsettlements.com to make a claim directly with the Court Authorized Program. We have been talking and working with Pat Juneau`s office for the last week on this issue.

We put up a disclaimer on DeepwaterHorizonSettlementClaims.com as soon as the issue came to light. That evidently was not good enough for them or the Judge. So in the next day or so we will be putting their disclaimer on all of our websites.

It was never intention to be mistaken for the their website, if you read our websites and many do on a regular basis, the idea that we are trying to mislead people into thinking we are their website is preposterous. Just read the websites, there is no way that people can mistake us for them.

We have taken the strongest stands for people that have been hurt by BP, the GCCF, some Attorneys, and have been vocal and I mean very vocal about what is really happening to all of us on an economic, environmental, and medical level. We will continue to fight for businesses, individuals and the environment.

We know the groups  that are getting the job done for the people, often they are not Law Firms, but Claims Adjusters and Accountants. We have built a network from Key West to Houston and forward claims to the best group that handles that particular claim. Their are some Attorneys out there that are not very fond of us, but what do you expect when our CPA`s or Claims Adjusters are charging 15% to what was once their 33.3%, until Judge Barbier had to order them to only charge 25%.

That being said we are fond of some Attorneys that are getting the job done, and know how to process claims. If you want to reach them just go to DeepWaterHorizonSettlement Claims.com and they will get right back to you. If you want to work with our chosen Team of Claims Adjusters and CPA`s just fill out the form to the right, and we will be happy to help you.

DeepWater Horizon Settlement  Pyramid

The DeepWater Horizon Settlement is just another mechanism to glean out valid BP Claims and get them paid. Think about the BP claims process like a Pyramid.

This is how the BP Claims Pyramid Works, we know this because it is based on a model that Insurance companies  have used for years.

  • They will first get the people that are most desperate to cash out first, here they used Quick Pays over 200,000 people and Businesses took these.
  • They will work up the Pyramid and take out the people and Businesses that have solid claims but are ready to settle hence the DeepWater Horizon Settlement Program, most of these will be small to midsize claims.
  • Expect a new mechanism here that has yet to be identified, that will take out the larger claims.
  • Finally some claims will move into the Litigation phase but most will be settled before they reach court.

This is how Settlements like this have moved forward for years don`t expect the Deepwater Horizon Settlement to be much different. Those who can hang in there the longest will reap the largest rewards.

DeepWater Horizon Settlement News

Lets remember they are just getting this ramped up, but the overall consensus is that this settlement will not last. There will be too many people opting out, too many law firms not opting their case loads in, and if you follow the pyramid example, the DeepWater Horizon Settlement is just one more mechanism to get claims settled.

The big question is will they settle out the larger claims, if they do, the DeepWater Horizon Settlement has a chance of making it, if they wait these claims out, to when the deadlines come up, it will most likely fail.

As it stands now, we advocate that you at least have all of your Claims well documented, and if you have not filed a claim, consider running it through the BP Claims Program that also just opened up. Yes there are now 2 separate funds to get compensated from. There is the DeepWater Horizon Settlement Fund and The BP Claims Program run by BP.

We can Help you with the New BP Claims Program and the DeepWater Horizon Settlement.

Packets were sent out late least week to 100`s of thousands of individuals and business`s that never got paid by the GCCF. Many of you have been calling over the weekend and today. The new process is even more difficult then the old one according to many of the Attorneys and Claims Preparers we have talked to.

DeepWater Horizon Settlement Purchasers

There are quite a few groups out there purchasing your BP Settlements right now. We have spoken to several of the firms that offer these services, their terms were quite different. If you decide to let one of these groups buy your settlement, read the fine print. We have heard that large groups of fishermen are being targeted by these groups because of the potentially large payouts, if you don`t need to take these settlements you may just want to wait it out a little longer. You have waited this long to get your BP Claims paid, it looks like you may just have to wait a bit longer, we hope.

DeepWater Horizon Settlement the word on the Street

After talking to the leading Attorneys and Claims Adjusters, the word on the street is, this system, except for a few exceptions is much more difficult then the GCCF system was. Many of them were quite ecstatic knowing that they would be employed for the next several years. Multiple claims and different documentation for each claim combined with different zones and industries makes for a very complex system. Even though Deep Water Horizon Settlement Fund is pitching it`s new electronic form filing as much easier, we will maintain a wait and see attitude on this.

What happens to the business that has several stores in zone A, one store in zone B, and a dozen in zone D, nobody seems to have that answer, yet.

The good news from the DeepWater Horizon Settlement fund is all of the papers previously filed with the GCCF will be available in the new DeepWater Horizon Settlement System.

DeepWater Horizon Settlement Thoughts

The DeepWater Horizon Settlement is not going to be the Settlement Solution everyone was hoping for. The mechanisms that will be utilized to figure out the claims was built with needing help in mind, remember this settlement was arranged by the Attorneys of the Plaintiff Steering Committee, do you really think they would ax themselves and the other attorneys out of a job, instead I think they may have insured their work load for a long time.

Voices from Down in the Bayou

Since we hear so much from the people making a living from the Gulf these days, we have decided to start another section to the Blog. We will report what is going on and let you all know what is happening on the front lines. Pogey fishermen are seeing a drastic decline in oil coming from their fish, what was around 14% fish oil pre spill, has declined along with fish size to 4-6%. This is bad news for these men and women, and they fear it is the tip of the iceberg. Also we are hearing that many of the fishermen and shrimpers are seeing a lot of oil out there, the patties and oil are hurting their nets and rigging.

Another fishermen  was telling me that since they are about as broke as broke can be, they are eating most of what they catch,  he went on to tell me they catch the fish that are just coming in, because you don`t want to eat the ones that have been in the bays and bayous to long. This is the same group that was the only group capped under the DeepWater Horizon Settlement at 2.3 Billion, which is ridiculous and still doesn`t make any sense to me.

DeepWater Horizon Settlement Help

If you need Help with your DeepWater Horizon Settlement Claims we have Attorneys and Claims Adjusters that can help you. They will charge from 15%-25%, only after you get paid.

We will Help You with Your DeepWater Horizon Settlement.

 

Deepwater Horizon Settlements News

Deepwater Horizon Settlements and You

deepwater horizon settlementsDeepwater Horizon Settlements will be the mechanism for you to settle your BP Claims. The Deepwater Court Supervised Settlement Program will cover economic and medical claims associated with the BP Oil Spill.

The only reason there is a Deepwater Horizons Settlements Program, is because of the dismal failure of the Gulf Coast Claims Facility.

The track record of the GCCF was shameful for many as they preyed upon the fishermen, crabbers, and shrimpers of the Gulf Coast.

Many others were starved into taking Quick Pays, and the buzz around creating a Class Action for those preyed upon has been intensifying in recent weeks.

Who runs the Deepwater Horizon Settlements Program

The Deepwater Horizons Settlements will be run as a court supervised program under Judge Barbier and the administrator Patrick Juneau.

The entities processing the claims will remain the same from the GCCF, this is a concern. New guidelines will of course be in place, but after the debacle of the GCCF and knowing what we do about their internal processing methods, we will be watching them like a Hawk, and letting you know how it goes.

Do You Qualify for Deepwater Horizon Settlements

If you did not take a quick pay or a final claim and can prove you were impacted by the BP Oil Spill you most likely qualify.Individuals and Businesses that took final claims that were only paid 60% still qualify for the BP Settlement. The Deep Water Horizon Settlements program was meant to do the greatest amount of good for the most amount of people.

If you did take a final or a quick pay, but worked on the V.O.O or are sick you still qualify for the BP Settlement.

Were there people left out of the BP Settlement that should have been addressed, you bet there were, and we are are hard at work still trying to help you. If you were damaged economically, physically or if your property was damaged the Deepwater Horizon Settlements Program is meant to help you.

Deepwater Horizon Settlements Help

It is our belief that the best thing you can do to insure that you are prepared for the Deepwater Horizon Settlements Program is to have a well documented BP Settlement Claim, and from what we have been seeing is that many of you will have multiple claims under the BP Settlement Program.

We work with licensed Claims Adjusters that have specialized in Hurricane and Tornado Claims for over 30 years, they know how to document these types of claims, and they are often called in as experts when multiple claims and issues arise in Judicial proceedings.

This is exactly what they do. They will document your claim for you. They charge 7.5%-15%.

We also work with Attorneys if they are needed, the Attorney`s we work with have a proven track record.

We will Help you with your Deepwater Horizon Settlements.
