Alabama AG says that oil spill claims are taking too long

The Attorney General of Alabama has sent a letter to the administrator of the Gulf Coast Claims Facility, Kenneth Feinberg, stating that processing the oil spill claims is taking too long.

The ag stated that the GCCF has taken a long time to pay out the claims so that the victims become too desperate and settle for an amount lower than they should.

He also reminded the people of Alabama that April 20 is the deadline to file a claim in the court litigation against the owner of the Deepwater Horizon, Transocean.

Oil spill claims adjuster speaks out

A man that was a former claims adjuster for BP is now speaking out about the complicated and slow claims process associated with the Gulf Coast Claims Facility.

The man was working with the Gulf Coast Claims Facility claims process and he is now stepping up to help others file their claims through the group. The man was brought in last summer as a certified claims adjuster to handle the process, but said that things changed when the GCCF came in.

The man is meeting with people to make sure that they have all the right papers because a figure was released saying that nearly 80 percent of claims will be denied for not having the right documentation.

If you or a loved one has been denied after filing an oil claim, you need experienced representation on your side. Contact the Gulf oil spill rejected claims lawyers of Williams Hart by calling 800-821-1544 today.

GCCF to look over nearly 300,000 denied claims

The Gulf Coast Claims Facility has paid nearly 180,000 claims while going through the emergency claims process, but nearly 300,000 claims were denied.

Pressure from the government has the claims processing group looking over the denied claims because many of them were put into a category that deemed them indirectly affected by the oil spill.

Claims that were denied include those in the real estate market and professionals such as doctors and lawyers. Many of these people are now resubmitting claims and hoping that they will not get denied this time because their business has affected their income significantly and they are seeking compensation.

If you have been denied an oil spill claim, you need experienced representation on your side in order to help you resubmit a claim. Contact the Gulf oil spill lawyers of Williams Hart by calling 800-821-1544 today.

Denied oil spill claims to be reconsidered

Kenneth Feinberg has announced that he will be reconsidering denied oil spill claims for businesses that do not have a tourism link.

According to a local newspaper, The U.S. Department of Justice announced that they asked Feinberg to reconsider claims that were denied that involve businesses in a “purely coastal community” that rely on visitors.

Multiple counties that were affected by the oil spill rely heavily on tourism and the lack of visitors in the area brought their economy in a down spin.

If you or your family lost money on your business because they were no tourists in the area and this sent your family into a difficult financial situation, you may be able to receive compensation for your losses. Contact the Oil spill denied claims lawyers of Williams Hart by calling 800-821-1544.

Judge finds that Feinberg is not fully independent of BP

The administrator of the $20 billion BP fund that was set up to help compensate victims who were affected by the oil spill, Kenneth Feinberg, has been on the claim that he is fully independent from BP.

A judge in the U.S. District Court issued the response after Feinberg said that he was completely independent from BP while settling claims through the fund. The judge said that these claims are “improper.”

The judge has stated that the relationship between BP and Feinberg are “hybrid” because the company is not settling any complaints, but they are the ones who appointed Feinberg. It is thought that because of this, more people may sue and not accept any quick settlements from the fund.

If you or a loved one has been denied a claim, this could cause you and your family to face serious financial issues after the damage that was done from the oil spill. Contact the Gulf oil spill rejected claims lawyers of Williams Hart today by calling 800-821-1544 and discussing your case.
