Gulf Coast Claims Under Scrutiny

Government Officials Investigating Gulf Coast Claims Process

It’s an open secret that the Gulf Coast Claims Facility is not doing a good job getting money out to people who need and deserve it, and that’s why it can be frustrating when it seems like nobody is doing anything about it. Well it looks like some state governments are finally taking action to clean up the Gulf Coast Claims process. This is all preliminary stuff, so I wouldn’t start celebrating yet, but it looks like there are least people with influence out there who care about Gulf Coast Claims. From big issues to small ones, we’re starting to see some action.

Gulf Coast Claims

States Taking Action on Gulf Coast Claims

The Gulf Breeze Claims Office in Florida is closing for no reason (except to get people to give up on getting their Gulf Coast Claims), but it’s actually getting some notice from people like Florida State Representative Doug Broxson who said he is “disturbed” by its recent closure.

Louisiana has also filed against BP and Transocean because they are trying to limit their liability for gulf coast claims for the 5 million barrels of oil they dumped into the gulf. BP and Transocean are trying to get out of paying for the damage they caused by saying that their explosion of oil was a “permitted discharge” under a ridiculous interpretation of an old law, and Louisiana is calling them on it.

Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood thinks that the Gulf Coast Claims Facility is tricking and forcing people into taking low quick pay final payments, and is going to Washington to look at their shady paperwork.

What Does This Mean For People Trying to Get Gulf Coast Claims?

The good news is that there are people in the state governments who see what BP is trying to do with the gulf coast claims process, and they are trying to do something about it. The bad news is that BP is very powerful, and has had virtually no pressure from the federal government to get its act together. The states may have some luck getting BP to actually pay what it deserves, but for right now it looks like the Gulf Coast Claims Facility is still up to its same old tricks: Delaying, demanding more documents, and denying.

If you want some free help getting the most from the Gulf Coast Claims Facility, you can fill out the free case review box on the right side of the page and somebody will contact you to help you out. In the meantime, as always, we recommend that you avoid taking any quick pay payments from the Gulf Coast Claims Facility and signing away your rights. Even though the GCCF is stingy with them, try to get interim payments so you don’t have to sign away your rights to get compensated.

Right now BP has said that the effects of the oil spill will be gone by the end of 2011. I’m sorry, but that’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard, and we all know it’s a lie. If you want to be compensated for your losses past 2011, or even completely for 2010-2011, be very careful about taking final payments from the Gulf Coast Claims Facility.
