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.

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.


Doing Your BP Settlement Yourself

I have gotten a lot of question from people that ask me if they can do their BP settlement themselves.  My answer is yes you can do the BP settlement yourself, but you might as well go to Las Vegas and try your luck on the roulette.

That is about the gamble you will be taking when going into the BP settlement with out an attorney to guide you. Why is that you ask ? because the BP settlement is may up by attorneys and the very complicated language that is associates with the different claims you can file and when you qualify for one claim and one payout and one multiplier its very complicated trust me I read the 1022 page document.

Why Don’t I Use A Consultant To Do My Claim They Are Cheaper ?

If the consultant has enough money to pay you after you file a lawsuit against  him after he screws up your BP settlement claim then I would say for sure go with a consultant.

Because then you have two option go in blind to the BP settlement hope as hell it lands on your number, if it does not file suit against your “consultant” for his misrepresentation and guidance in the matter.

This is a legal settlement and the last time I check a so called consultant can not give out legal advice.

So how will he advice you if its correct to opt in to the BP settlement or not ?  Short answer to that is he can’t so he will make you take the decision again for all the money if you should opt in or out of the BP settlement.

So if that is the case why do you need a consultant ?

Here are your 3 option in the BP Settlement

1. Do it yourself take a gamble

2. Hire an consultant and file suit against him if the gamble does not work

3. Fire your consultant and hire an attorney right now.

I know that attorneys are expensive yes they charge from 25% -33% of what you get in your claim and if you feel like you claim is not worth that then choose option 1 or 2 . If you feel like you have some serious money coming your way and don’t want to gamble on the amount then fill out a form and hire an attorney to handle your case. If you like filing suit and get money from people that screw up sign up with an consultant and remember to ask them what kind of policy they have in place if you have to file suit against them one day. Find out how big a company you are working with, find out who you are working with.

When you first fill out a form on this website from our advertisers you will find nice people that return your call and will talk to you about your BP settlement case.

After he has adviced you what you legal rights are in the BP settlement and by going directly to BP with your case its up to you to decide if you want to take your attorneys advice or if you want to do something different. Its your choice in the end but I will strongly suggest that you list to your attorney as that is why you hired him in the first place.
