April 2013 BP Claims Update

Its been a while and I do apologize for that, its just been a busy time. Let me give a quick update on where we are at and what is going on right now.

BP Settlement Latest News

So Firday the 19 of April the lawyers filed their complaint for all the people that opt out of the BP settlement. You can see a copy of the complaint the lawyers filed on your behalf if you are an opt out here

Its a document in PDF that is 291 pages long so make sure that your computer can handle it. So if you are with the attorney Brent Coon & Associates or D Miller & Associates I would suggest you do the following if you have opt out of the BP settlement.

Open up the document and save it to your computer. When you have it saved to your computer then you can go under edit and find and that will bring up a search field. Now search for your personal claim or business claim by name to make sure you are on the list.

If you are part of this group about 10,000 people that just filed suit against BP here is what will happen next.

BP Oil Spill Claims Update Phase 1

So the lawsuit has been filed in Federal court if you live in Florida or Louisiana and in State court in Houston Texas if you live in Alabama or Mississippi. There are a few reasons why the attorneys have done this that I will not go into here but this is where you lawsuit it. Most likely the lawsuits will end up with Judge Barbie in New Orleans in the MDL and from there go back out to state court again. This is just a matter of how things are working in an MDL and when judge Barbie gets the cases back to the state courts or Houston Texas the fun begins.

Everybody Are Looking For A Trial Date On Their BP Claims Lawsuit

Now comes the wait where the attorneys will wait for the trial judge to put any of their cases on the trial calender for trial. Normal wait time in USA is 18 month from lawsuit to trial. There are tons of pre-trial motions and other fun stuff going on between now and trial but once that first trial date is set, the clock starts ticking for BP.

If BP don’t want to try these cases at trial they will have to settle them before the trial start or before the jury reaches their verdict so the lawyers will have the advantage when a case is up for trial. Many times in the past I have seen one case come up for trial and the lawyers will settle 100-200 cases on that one case that is up for trial. This will most likely also happen in this case.

You will all hear from your lawyers on what they need from you to make your case ready for trial, if you are one of the cases with very little documentation don’t worry to much just give them what you have nothing more and nothing less. But keep in contact with the attorneys and make sure to give them your new contact information if you move.

The wait will be painful for many, and hard to handle as there is no money coming why we wait. Also why BP has made the Settlement open ended to opt back in but you can never opt back out. I have seen many many offers that has come back with we already paid you x,xxx and you have nothing more coming. People ask me what they can do about and I have to tell them nothing. When you are in the settlement you have to take what they give you and there is nothing lawyers or judges can do about it. So if you can stay opted out and wait for trial no mater how hard it gets. When trial comes the cards are all in favor of the attorney you are with and at that point you should see justice and you getting what you are owed.

What Is Going On In The Current Liability Trial Against BP

The liability trial against BP has gone on for a few month now and its really boring but here is what is at stake. If BP loose its 4 times as much they have to pay. So it goes from like 5 Billion to 20 Billion. If they loose people that work on the water like fishermen can possibly get punitive damages. On the other hand if BP don’t loose the trial and only have to pay 5 billion maybe they have some billion left over that they can settle all the civil lawsuits with so you sometimes have to be careful what you wish because if BP takes a big hit in this trial they might not be so willing to pay the civil lawsuits that are coming after. Then again if BP gets over confident over a win in the liability trial maybe they will fight the civil trials harder. Its tough to say but we have a good judge that will make the right call on this one I think.

 BP Claims Payment Update

So the Deepwater Horizon settlement fund keeps paying out money on claims that have been processed. Its taking forever because there is now over 150,000 claims in the settlement. Also the BP appeals on most claims are slowing down the process. I am hearing that they have hired 100 new processors to speed up the claims processing but we have to wait and see how much faster its going.

Gulf Coast Claims Facility Updates

All the people that filed a claim with the GCCF and was in GCCF Claims Processing will now have to fill out new forms with the Deepwater Horizon Settlements. If you are a business you should probably have an attorney do all this work for you. If you are an individual I would suggest you visit one of the Deepwater Horizon claims offices find the list here. Deepwater Horizon BP Claims Centers.

If you are looking for a GCCF Claims Update it will not come as they are closed and now you have to file with the Deepwater Horizon People.

BP Oil Spill News Update

Just last week BP said that in four states the clean up work was done, this would be all states but Louisiana, we all know that is some BS that they are letting out to the press and the media. We also know that this oil spill will haunt them for the rest of this companies life as the long term effects of this oil spill and the use of Corexit as a clean up process will make many people sick going forward. If you are still looking to get your BP claims done please fill out a form.

GCCF News about the 6% Attorneys fee On Your BP Claims

Now to begin with this was just stupid and everybody with inside into the BP Claims world knew that it would not hold up and it did not, for about 3 weeks the GCCF was holding back the 6% on every BP claim they paid but now the judge correctly ruled that the 6% does not apply to people that has filed their own BP claim with the GCCF. The 6% fee only applies to people using an attorney to help with their claims. I did not address the fee at the time because it was so clear that it could never hold up, it was just plain stupid and I would judge it as a mistake by the Judge Barbier. I will say one of the very few mistakes he has made during this whole process. Think about this for a second and you will understand how stupid it is. 6% fee on 14 billion dollars is something like 840 million dollars. The 90 attorney’s that are working the case for the plaintiff has said they to date has spend 12 million dollars. Now why would we have to collect 840 million when they have only spend 12 million and they are more than half way done with stuff made no sense. The judge woke up saw his mistake and made the correction.

BP Claims Lawsuit Coming Your Way…. Maybe

Yes it is a big maybe because the DOJ (Department Of Justice) and BP are trying to settle this whole mess out of court as the chances they would both take by going to court are to big, for them not to make a settlement. The good news for people with unpaid BP claims is the timing of the settlement as the MDL (Multi District Litigation) or BP Claims Lawsuit would be up right after the liability trial is over. Now if you have your documents ready its not to late for you to get sign up and get ready for the settlement offers that currently are coming our way fast and  furious.

What does it take you might ask to get in on these settlements going on right now ? It takes a case that has been worked up by an attorney where you have a number on your losses. If you have a number you are getting a settlement offer to get you out of there. We have worked up hundreds  of cases an if you have numbers to back up your BP claim with getting a settlement offer from the GCCF is not that hard, once an attorney presents the GCCF with your final demand letter.

BP Claims and Final Demand Letter Only Attorney’s Can Do It

Now here is what people need to understand about the OPA (Oil Pollution Act ), in it there is rules that needs to be followed by the GCCF, when an attorney makes a final demand on an oil spill claim. Now this is why you need an attorney if you have come to the point where you have given up on the GCCF. If you just take a “Consultant” he will not be able to do an OPA Final Demand Letter on your claim, because what would the “consultant” do if he gets rejected ? He would do nothing because he is just a consultant and he has no powers. He really just have the same powers as you do, and if you have been though the hoops at the GCCF, you know what that is.

No you need an attorney to make the OPA final demand letter to the GCCF, this puts the GCCF on notice that they have 90 days to come with an offer or the attorney will file a lawsuit and demand the money in court.

Now this strategy is working extremely well for Brent Coon & Associates and they are getting most clients paid after their claim has been worked up and submitted to the GCCF with an OPA Final Demand Letter.

Don’t Wait Another Year On Some Wanna Be “Consultant” Doing Your BP Claims

Even before you do it I can tell you exactly how the whole thing will play out. You submit your BP claims to some “consultant” out there with a PHD in BS and he will work up your claim and submit it to the GCCF, after he gets it back with missing documents or denied, he will submit it a couple of more times and eventually he will come to you and suggest that you use an attorney for your BP Claim. When this happens you will have lost another 6-12 month of your life and he will know just the attorney that he will suggest that you go with.

The alternative to this scenario is go with the best attorney there is doing BP Claims, the law firm of Brent Coon & Associates, he will do great trying to first settle your case with the GCCF using the OPA final demand letter, if that does not work he will be the best BP trial lawyer you have ever seen, he will slam BP back to where they came from.
