"Is the GCCF living up to its promises?"
Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) September 21, 2010
Gulf Coast residents began filing BP Claims with the Gulf Coast Claims Facility four weeks ago, and Michael J. Evans has a question: "Is the GCCF living up to its promises?" Evans, who writes about the Gulf oil spill on the popular BPOilNews.com blog, says his company has launched a new site to cover the aftermath of the oil spill. The new site, BP-Claims-Report.com, offers a free online BP Claims Report Card where people can give Kenneth Feinberg and the Gulf Coast Claims Facility the grades they believe they deserve.
Anyone who is interested in the grades the Gulf Coast Claims Facility received can view the grades at BP Claims Information. In early voting, the Gulf Coast Claims Facility has received an F in every category except one--ease of using the applications forms. In that category, there was a tie between those giving a "C" grade and those giving a "B."
The new website has an entire page devoted to promises Kenneth Feinberg made about the Gulf Coast Claims Facility. Evans said, "Based on what I've read in the news, it sounds as if the GCCF hasn't delivered what was promised. I wanted to know what real people who filed real claims would say, so the idea for a BP Claims Report Card was born."
BP-Claims-Report.com will provide news and information about the BP claims process and oil spill lawsuits against BP, Transocean and Halliburton. BP-Claims-Report.com will also allow people to upload videos about their oil spill claims to the BPClaims YouTube Channel. People can connect with BP Claims Report on Facebook and follow @BPClaimsReport for news updates on Twitter.
Evans said he hopes the new website will be as popular as BPOilNews.com. "One of the most popular things about BPOilNews.com was that it allowed readers to post suggestions for different ways to stop the oil leak. We had over 2,000 suggestions from people in all walks of life, including University professors, engineers, plumbers, students, and others. One of our readers' suggestions was quoted by the BBC." said Evans. "We're going to let people comment at BP-Claims-Report.com the same way we allow comments at BP-Oil-News.com. I believe people like to have a place to exchange information and opinions."
