Our firm has been hired by the Alabama Restaurant Association (ARA) to provide legal counsel to businesses suffering as a result of the BP Oil Spill. Restaurants and other hospitality industry businesses have lost and unfortunately continue to lose significant revenue as a result of the oil spill. The disaster in the Gulf severely impacted the availability and pricing of commercial seafood. It also crippled the tourist industry at the beginning of its peak season. ARA President Lawrence M. Fidel in a letter to his membership, stated:
Initially we, as many of you, were hopeful that BP would fully and fairly compensate your losses through the claims process. Unfortunately, the BP claims process has miserably failed to live up to these expectations as reflected through the outright denial of claims based on arbitrary rules such as how close the location of a business is to the Gulf Coast. Many of our members not in proximity to the coast have been and continue to be affected financially as a result of the oil spill.
A phone number and website specifically for members of the Alabama Restaurant Association has been set up. The Association’s staff will be available to answer questions and respond to any inquiries from members concerning any aspect of the disaster.
BP, Feinberg and the GCCF are all one and the same, regardless of what they pretend. Based on what we have seen, the new GCCF process is no more fair than the old one. In fact, it’s virtually the same. Restaurants and the hospitality industry in Alabama have taken a beating over the oil disaster and these businesses deserve full compensation, not pennies on the dollar for clear losses they have suffered.
Our firm has filed a number of lawsuits in District Courts in Alabama, Florida and Louisiana to help protect businesses and individuals harmed by the oil spill. Complaints have been filed on behalf of a broad range of clients including commercial fishing businesses, retail establishments, the restaurant industry, real estate management companies, property owners, persons suffering personal injuries and others.
