BP Claims Settlement Application

You see the news about the BP Claims Settlement and you are trying to find out how you and your family get in on that to get paid for any claim you might have in connect to the BP oil spill. Well this post is to try and help you with any BP claims you might have that you could put into the settlement and how you apply for it.

First if you live on the beach there is a good chance that the BP oil spill had some impact on your paycheck or impact on your health as BP was spray Corexit all over the place to hide the oil from the media.

If you have a business on the water or in the tourist industry most likely you have claim for loss of future earnings. If you had a house you where renting out for tourist coming in for the summer, or where living in a house on the water in 2010 you have a claim. If you sold your house from May 2010 – December 2010 you have a claim. I could go on and on, so its important that you let an expect look at your situation and let them find all your claims.

What Do I Need To Do To File For My BP Claims Settlement ?

First off you have to get your claim into an attorney to go though the attorney BP settlement and the way you do that is to fill out a form with your contact information so the attorney can call you and talk to you about the possible claims you have. Don’t waist your time with a person that know of a person that can do it for you. I have had way to many phone calls from people that did not go with an attorney and are still waiting for payment. So go with an attorney on this you will be glad you did.

Once you have talked to the attorney and he has found your claims, its your turn to prove those claims with as much information as you have. The BP Claims settlement does allow for people getting paid that does not have all documentation, but the amount you will be paid is less. So get as much information to the attorney as you possibly can proving your case.

Once the attorney has gotten all your information his staff that are trained in disaster recovery will go though the claim and come up with a number of your losses and then add the multiplier to that number and that should be your BP settlement compensation. Once he is done he will submit it as an attorney claim against the BP settlement fund.

The BP settlement fund will understand that your claim was worked up by an attorney and your claim will get the special attention it needs from the BP Claims settlement fund.

The next thing you will know is the attorney will call you up with a number that the BP settlement has come back with to award you and you have the chance to accept that number and get a check.

The attorney will not be paid for his work before you get money from the BP settlement so no money out of pocket for you on this, only money coming in.

To get started fill out a form on this website and talk to an attorney about your claim today.

Shrimping Season Starts Today In Gulf OF Mexico

In other news the shrimping season are starting today in the Gulf of Mexico, in the areas still open for shrimping. The biggest problem we saw last week was the reports of shrimp being caught with out eyes and the waters around Alabama was closed down. Later in the week the government came out and said the reason for the closure was because of the shrimp being to small. I have seen enough episodes of 24 and hear enough to see when the government are trying to pull a fast one on us and I think that is the case here. So its something to keep and eye on. I will hear later today from seafood processors on how the catches where if there is any problems out there and I will let you guys know. If the shrimps are not out there in a condition where they can be caught and sold look out for the shrimp processors that already got a bad deal in the BP claims settlement with not getting the same multipliers as the shrimp harvesters. We will see how this one goes.

BP Claims Settlement Deadlines and Final Approval.

The BP Claims Settlement is not up for final approval until November 2012, and the money will be paid out starting on June 3 2012. So I expect we have 6 month to get as many people paid as possible before the BP claims settlement get busted on appeal. That is what most attorneys I talk to expect will happen, the BP claims settlement will not last through the appeals process. So its very important that people that want money from the settlement get their paperwork and claims into the attorneys now. After the BP claims settlement gets busted the trial or a new settlement will see the light of day. Nobody know the only thing that is certain is each time the money will get better for the really good business claims.


BP Claims Settlement Gets Pre-Approval By Judge

The judge did give pre-approval to the BP Claims Settlement Yesterday evening, so that means the clock has started to tick for the payout of the largest individual settlement in US history. This settlement is uncapped and the 8 billion that BP told its share holders it will cost will not be enough to pay this one off. The start up date for the BP Settlement fund will be June 3 2012 that gives everybody 1 month from today to get the paperwork into their attorney and get their claim rolling to the BP settlement fund.

Politics In The BP Claims Settlement

There are so many different groups that has opposed the BP settlement in the form its in now so why did the judge grant a pre-approval ? My personal believe is that by granting pre-approval and by BP agreeing to pay people under the BP settlement before it has gotten its final approval, this will get another section of the triangle paid off. The judge and most of the trial lawyers knows that this settlement will not hold up for approval in November. It will not hold up on appeal so that gives us exactly 6 month to get as much money from BP to as many people as possible that fits into the settlement. VOO boats, Tourist Business, Tourist employees, Seafood harvesters, Real estate sales, Oyster Leases. We need to get as many of these people processed and submitted to the BP settlement and pay by the settlement before November 2012.

When the BP settlement breaks apart in November the judge will have no choice but to send the rest of the cases not paid by the settlement back out to the individual districts and trial settings will be setup for each case.

I have tried to illustrate the payout on the BP oil spill by the triangle below.

I am not saying its bad money in the BP settlement as I do think for a lot of people in the seafood harvesting and tourist industry that people and business are getting a very fair compensation, but for people that have the money to stay in the big money are still waiting at the top of the triangle for good business cases and personal claims.

My BP Claim Does Not Fit The BP Settlement

After the GCCF transition process is over on June 3 2012, BP has to setup its new OPA (Oil pollution act) agent. It could be the GCCF again or it could be BP direct. But they have to setup some body or entity to file your claim with.

Actually they have to do it right now as there has to be an alternative to the BP settlement and people have to be able to file interim claims with BP for  money owed to them for their losses. Your BP claim that does not fit in the settlement has to be presented  to the responsible party (BP) and after 90 days they have to give you an offer or a denial before you can file suit against them.

This process will be going on for the Moratorium claims, for the BP Gas stations and anybody else that was excluded from the BP settlement. Think about all the people in Florida that did not live in a Gulf Of Mexico county and got excluded from the BP settlement but  have legitimate loss as a result of the BP oil spill. The Florida AG has already objected to the settlement because of the 10,000 business that where excluded in Florida because of the settlement only recognizing the certain “water” counties in Florida. There will be 100,000 of claims coming from all over Florida that will go though an attorney and going to trial against BP for their losses in 2010.
