Just in the news today was Gulf Coast Claims Facility closing down 8 more offices in the Gulf Region, again showing that they have given up on more than 340,000 people that still are waiting for their claim to be resolved. If you have ever tried to call the Gulf Coast Claims Facility 1-800 number you will know what I mean its impossible unless you have somewhere close to go and talk to a person.
Gulf Coast Claims Facility paying some BP Claims but 500,000 claims still in limbo
So with 340,000 Claimants still out there with well over 500,000 claims, that is half the claims that has ever been filed with the Gulf Coast Claims Facility still open according to their own statistic on their website, lets all rate the performance of the GCCF. It get a big F (Failure) in my book.
Just sitting there collecting their 1.25 million a month to run the show. With 8 billion on the bank account collecting interest while 340,000 people are still waiting to get paid very simple claims. What a disgrace.
Mr. Feinberg says in a press release to not blame President Obama, but to blame him for the failed GCCF. I will blame you Mr. Feinberg, but why did we elect a president to handle things and he strikes a deal with BP to put Mr. Feinberg in place and 1 1/2 years after the BP oil spill more than 500,000 claims are not paid. I don’t see how we cannot blame Mr. Obama for not doing enough.
In my book our president is abandoning the Gulf Coast now that the media attention is gone from the BP oil spill. He is letting the Gulf Coast Claims Facility get away with playing games with people and constantly moving the ball on where they should go to get the money they lost more than 1 1/2 years ago.
What Do We Need To Do To Get Our BP Claims Paid By The Gulf Coast Claims Facility ?
This is the question that I get asked the most on the 800 number that I man every day, where people call in for help. People are not really looking for help they are just looking for a straight answer on what is going on and why its taking so long to get paid.
I will here give everybody a list of the best tricks that work with getting the Gulf Coast Claims Facility to give your claim the attention it needs to get paid. Try these next time you talk to the GCCF and see if I am right. Now this is not a bluff you should follow though with it and do what you threaten to do if they don’t move your BP Claim along and get it paid. These are listen in respect to how well they have been proven to work.
1. Tell the Gulf Coast Claims Facility that you will contact your local media and have them do a story about your business or your claim and about how the GCCF has totally screwed you out of your very nice lively hood before the BP Oil Spill.
Now I would not just threaten this I would do it if they don’t move you claim along. Always give them time, like here is an example.
“If my claim is not paid by Thanks Giving I will make it my mission in life to get as much media attention to my claim and the process the Gulf Coast Claims Facility has put me though that you guys will be shut down when I am done with talking to the media”.
If your claim is not paid by Thanks Giving contact your local radio or tv station and tell them your story, if they get enough calls from people they will know that this is an important story for them to run.
2. Tell the GCCF that your are in contact with Brent Coon & Associates and if they don’t get your claim processed and paid by Thanks Giving he will get your case and they can deal with him on paying your claim.
Gulf Coast Claims Facility Hates Publicity and Attorney’s
Again by saying this to the Gulf Coast Claims Facility they will understand that your are serious with your claim and that you will find representation for your claim by the best oil spill attorney in the country if they don’t get off their butt and deals with your claim. Don’t just say it to them make up your mind that if your claim is not paid by Thanks Giving request representation by Brent Coon & Associates. For you to do so just fill out the Free Case Review on this page and they will contact you right away about your claim.
I can tell your guys that have read down to this point that both ways have worked with the GCCF of getting them moving on peoples claims and getting people paid. So give it a try and remember to give me a call on the 800 number if it works for you. I will be available all day Friday and Saturday to answer questions on the 800 number.
What they will also understand by you name dropping Brent Coon & Associates is that they can pay you now or pay 2-3 times more later when Brent gets done with them.
If this does not get them moving do what you said you would do and go to the media or get represented by an attorney.
Another great week of people getting paid on their BP Claims from the GCCF, we have gotten many more business paid on the interim and final claims with the GCCF.
I think want we have found out by working closely with the GCCF is that if you present your case well to them and have a strong argument of why you have lost the amount you are stating your have lost its very likely that they will pay you the full amount in a very short amount of time. It does help when the case are presented by one of the strongest BP oil spill attorney’s out there but still a well crafted case will go from denied by the GCCF to approved by the GCCF very fast in our system.
Getting Your GCCF Claims Approved
What we have found out by working with the GCCF for all these month is very important to getting your GCCF claims approved.
1. You must present all documentation that they are asking for check out GCCF Help for all documentation needs.
2. Your Causation letter to the GCCF telling them why it was the BP oil spill causing the economic damage and not the general economy must be strong.
3. If your case is not a straight forward loss where you show on pay check that you made less in 2010 than in 2008 and 2009 don’t even use the GCCF
4. If this was a new business start up less than 1 year in business don’t even use the GCCF they will not pay you
5. If your business closed down because of the economic impact from the BP oil spill don’t wast your time with the GCCF
On all the sections that are not straight forward you need to get with an attorney to handle the case for you as there are many factors that goes into your claim if your business closed down or if you sales did not fall in 2010 but still you had a loss.
Now how can that be you might ask. Well what if you had one product like brown shrimp that you normally did 1,000,000 a year in sales but in 2010 your did zero. Now you did make up that loss on other products showing 2010 as no loss compared to 2009 but had the oil spill not happened you would have made the sales of the brown shrimp and come out with a big surplus.
So just because you don’t show a lower 2010 did not mean that you or the business did not loose anything. Think about the loss on your seafood costing more in 2010, giving you a lower Gross Profit as your cost went up. There are many complicated ways to look at your books to find out exactly what loss you might have had. Let a professional do that work for you.
If your GCCF claims where denied or deficient
Here is what I would do if you GCCF claim was deficient and you got a deficiency letter back from the GCCF, try and see if you can send back in the paperwork they are asking for to move your case along. If you need a work up on your claim contact our 800 number to have them help you. If you feel like you are tried of their BS fill out a free case review and get our full system working for you. If you GCCF claim was denied, don’t give up there is still hope that you can get money. We have gotten a lot of denied over turned and gotten them money. The last one was a restaurant in Florida but on the Atlantic side that we got moved from a denied to $78,000 in about 3 month. If you have had a loss because of the oil spill we can make the case for you and make it payable with the GCCF no matter what you have done up to this point yourself.
