BP Settlement A Bust

After all this time working with people getting their documentation for the BP settlement it looks like a bust, as the 2.5% of all claims submitted have been processed and have received an offer. 2.5% that is a correct number as of today. The BP Settlement looks more and more a bust even worse than the GCCF. In August the doors got opened for BP settlement offers to come out and only 1,500 offers came, that is totally unacceptable for an organisation that are supposed to have plenty of money from BP to administrate an undertaken like this. At the pace of 1,500 offers a month it will take the BP settlement 38 month or almost 2 years to get though the claims they have in today and new claims are coming in at a rate of about 20,000 new claims per month. Another fact is that the BP settlement only have until November 2012 where final approval have to be given for the settlement to move forward.

At this point I would tell people to sign up with an attorney and be ready for trial with BP. The BP Settlement is a bust and if you are not ready with an attorney on the opt out date you are going to be stuck in this thing. We have some great attorneys connected to this website that has already helped over 16,000 people get filed and processed. You need to be with an attorney that has this kind of experience with BP that can go to BP with thousand of case and get them settled before a possible trial.

What Do You Need To Have For The BP Settlement ?

Keep all W2′s and 1099′s with you for the years 2007 – 2011 so you can document your losses. If you are a fisherman or shrimper keep you trip tickets and your landing slips. Keep all tax returns that you have from those years. Keep any other paperwork that might prove your case. If there is some paperwork you don’t have the attorneys can help you with that. If you have had damage to your property with oil take pictures of all wet lands, beaches and other contamination. If you can take samples of the oil please wear protective gloves as the Corexit will be bad for your skin.

If you are a seafood harvester document with video or diary the state of your industry it will be good to have later for trial. Document as much as possible the better documentation and prof you can provide the stronger your case would be.

For now everybody are processed and submitted to the BP settlement if they are a class member but be ready to opt out if your attorney advice you to do so. If the BP settlement really is a bust like I suspect then everybody need to opt out before November 1 2012. Before then and why you need to contact an attorney today they need your documents and case worked up so the attorneys can see what would be best for you from the documentation you have.

Deepwater Horizon Settlements Very Confusing

The Deepwater Horizon Settlements or BP settlements are to confusing with over 40 different claims forms to fill out and multiple claims to submit for the new courts supervised settlement program it  is to confusing for anybody trying to do it by them self. This creates two problems first there is the problem of people not submitting claims to the Deepwater Horizon Settlements and thereby do not get any money. Second problem is if you do nothing you are opt in automatically and that is a big problem.

Today a new form came out that everybody filing a claim has to submit, its called the registration form and its 12 pages of information that most people don’t have. This registration form has to be filled out by each claimant or their attorney. That is in addition to the claims form itself .

The attorney court supervised settlements are not for people filing a claim without an attorney, its made so difficult to do that you would have to hire an attorney to get your claim processed and submitted correctly.

Deepwater Horizon Settlements Submission

First of what a stupid name just so BP can get their name off the settlement because they of course is not admitting fault over the oil spill, this is a settlement that BP has agreed to but by agreeing they don’t admit fault for the incident. Anyway this is what you need to do when submitting your claims to the Deepwater Horizon Settlement fund.

First you fill out a form on these pages and get with an attorney, the attorney will ask you for the documents they need to process your claims and submit your forms. The attorney will then process and fill out the correct forms for you in the Deepwater Horizon Settlements and this will cost you nothing up front. The attorney does all the work and does not get paid until you get paid. This way you guys have the same interest in getting you paid as fast as possible.

BP Settlement Not Over Yet

So if you opt out from the Deepwater Horizon Settlements before October 1 2012 (deadline) then you would file you claims directly with BP and maybe get a BP settlement from them or go to court against them with your attorney. BP is still on the hook for the oil spill though OPA (Oil pollution act) and if the deepwater settlement does not give you what you want, then you would opt out and file directly with BP. If you wanted to you could opt out now and file directly with BP. So even though you see in the news that BP has settled all business and individual cases from the BP oil spill that is not the truth and there will be plenty of cases that will make it to the courts for a resolution.

If you claim does not fit the box of the GCCF (take a small payment and get the hell away) or the Deepwater Horizon Box if you are in the tourist industry or seafood industry we will pay you a little bit, then you have to opt out now and go directly after BP with your attorney.

How To Figure Out The Deepwater Horizon Settlements

First off I would say let the professional attorneys do it for you that is their job to do that. If you don’t want to use an attorney the next option would be to go stand in the long line of people waiting at the Deepwater offices, that should have been opened last Monday the 4th but did not. So call ahead to see if they are opened now. Last I hear about the offices from Pensacola everybody inline was told to go home again as the office was not yet ready. That is why I suggest using the attorneys we provide for you, everything will be done over emails or internet and you will be able to do your claims from home. Talk to your attorney over the phone and get everything done that way.

I understand if you are not understanding all the forms that needs to be filed out to the BP settlement I am the same way when I look at it. Fill out a form on this website today and get started now.
