Gulf Coast Claims Facility
BP Claims Attorney
The Gulf Coast Claims Facility, or GCCF, which formerly processed claims, is being shut down, and there is a new system in place which should be more beneficial to those who have suffered personal, property and business damages due to the Gulf Coast oil spill. A BP claims lawyer from the Amaro Law Firm should be contacted immediately if you have a pending claim, or need to file a claim. Many people who tried to get compensation for damages through the GCCF were very disappointed – valid claims were denied or the offers were far too low, and the system functioned slowly and poorly. The new system, which was put in place in March of 2012, allows for a faster and more equitable resolution to claims.
It is important that you file your claim as early as possible. There are tens of thousands of claims that need to be paid, and the earlier your claim is in the system, the faster we can expect to get compensation for you. We know that the entire process of recovering compensation has been extremely frustrating, and the system that the Gulf Coast Claims Facility used was unwieldy and did not treat claimants fairly. The new system, which is supervised by Federal Judge Carl Barbier, was put in place to resolve the problems in the earlier system, and get valid claims paid fairly and quickly. There is no limit to the amount of money that BP may have to put into this system, but currently there is $7.8 billion available for claimants.
