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.
