Who Runs The Gulf Coast Claims Facility?
The Gulf Coast Claims Facility is the organization tasked with the responsibility to review BP claims and distribute over 20 billion dollars to individuals and businesses who have been affected by the oil spill. The GCCF has been notoriously slow in possessing BP Claims and we have seen countless cases where the GCCF has rejected or tried to underpay legitimate BP claims.
The truth is the GCCF is not your friend and they are not a neutral party either. In February of 2011 Judge Carl Barbier of New Orleans ruled that Ken Feinberg, his law firm Feinberg Rozen LLP, and the GCCF (which Feinberg manages) must refrain from referring to themselves as "neutral" or completely "independent." The reason is Feinberg's firm is paid over $850,000 to manage the GCCF and has a financial interest in delaying the process as long as possible. We also do not know if Feinberg and his firm have been influenced by BP in any other way to deny claims or only approve a certain amount.
Our clients have nothing but horror stories on how their claims were either rejected without cause or the GCCF strung them along every 90 days by asking for more and more paperwork. This is simply unacceptable; everyone deserves to have his or her BP Claim handled in a timely and professional manner.
If your BP claim was rejected by the GCCF, or you are processing though the GCCF and you are seeing nothing but delays give us a free call or contact us.
