Making a Gulf Coast Business Claim

What is a Gulf Coast Business Claim?

A lot of people rely on the gulf to make their living, but the big ones you always hear about are fishermen, shrimpers, and other people like them. The less well-known but still equally hurt businesses like jet ski rental sites and charter fishermen are hurting too, and they have the same rights as fishermen with a gulf coast business claim.

If you have a business that relies on tourists visiting the gulf, and that business has posted losses after the BP oil spill, there’s a very good chance you can file a gulf coast business claim. It’s BP’s fault that the gulf got filled with oil and gulf coast didn’t want to visit, so it’s BP’s responsibility to pay for your losses with a gulf coast business claim.

Why Are Times So Rough, and Why Should You File A Gulf Coast Business Claim

As people who are eligible for a Gulf Coast business claim already know, the bread and butter for jet ski rental sites and especially for charter fishermen is repeat business. People fall into a pattern and come for vacation with the same people every year. The problem with the oil spill is families didn’t come down for a year or two thanks to the oil spill, and now even that it’s a little better they’ve fallen into different habits. A lot of these businesses NEED a Gulf Coast business claim.

Charter fishermen are hit really hard because there are really two problems. Tourists aren’t coming down like they used to, especially repeat business, but also even the ones who do come down aren’t catching as many fish. The red snapper have mysteriously disappeared since the oil spill, and other fish aren’t biting as much, so if someone comes down and doesn’t catch much, how likely are they to come back? Not very. BP needs to make things right, and the only way to do it is if you make a Gulf Coast business claim.

How Do You File a Gulf Coast Business Claim

The problem with doing a Gulf Coast business claim with the GCCF is that they are trying to send everyone these lowball quick pays for $25,000 for a business claim or $5,000 for a personal one. This is nowhere near the amount a Gulf Coast business claim is worth. You have a REALLY good claim if you own one of these businesses because your profits are tied directly to the gulf.

You can go ahead and file with the GCCF and hope you get lucky, but more and more it looks like the only people getting paid for their Gulf Coast business claims are the ones who get an attorney. One of the big differences between getting represented and going with the GCCF is that an attorney can get you paid for 3-5 years of losses for your Gulf Coast business claim, which is a lot closer to what the damage is really going to be. Once hurricane season comes and all that oil washes back up onto the beaches, the tourists who are just starting to trickle back will tell their friends it’s still not good to come down to the gulf.

GCCF Business Claims

Filing GCCF Business Claims if you own a small business that had been affected by the BP Oil Spill is not a bad idea. If your business  has had lost revenue in 2010 compared to 2009 and years prior to that. A CPA or anybody else that you consult with will tell you to file  GCCF Business Claims for the damage the oil spill has done to your business. The missing revenue for the Gulf Region has had ripple effects through the economy and even though your clients are not tourists, your clients may rely on tourist dollars to buy the services from you. So if you own a small business and have had a drop in sales in 2010, filing GCCF Business claims with BP or filing out a form on our site would get you the help you need.

GCCF Business Claims What Do You Need?

For you to prove your GCCF Business claims to BP you need to have your Business income statement ready to send in for the last 3 years, if you have been in business that long. A backup of any other details that support you claim would be a good idea. The Attorney`s we have connected with have a standard process for each claim, of what needs to be filed, and how the claims form needs to be filled out to maximize your success. Many of the Attorneys have former members of the GCCF on their staff as they know the in`s and out`s better then anyone.

Prepare GCCF Business Claims

When they prepare  GCCF business claims form for one of our users it should be for Interim payments (quarterly payments) and not final payment. Why is that you might ask, well we want our users to get as much as possible and get what is right for their claim. If they ask for a final claims payment now and let the client sign off on never going after BP again many things can happen. What if the oil returns, what if the fishing gets banned again, and what if the tourist don’t return this year. When the paper work goes though our Dream Team they are taking the approach of never closing the door on claims money from BP until you absolutely have to (3 year rule), and even then what if there are still problems from the oil spill, why not keep the option of filing a lawsuit against BP open even after 3 years. Remember the 3 year rule is something BP and GCCF came up with if you have damages after 10 years you can go after BP for those damages as long as you don’t sign away your rights in a final claims payment.
