Birmingham, AL (Vocus) May 21, 2010
The Birmingham, Alabama law firm of Heninger Garrison Davis, one of the first law firms to file a class action oil spill lawsuit on behalf of its clients (Case Number 1:10-cv-00221) in the United States District Court of Alabama, Southern Division against Transocean, BP and others, has launched multiple oil spill legal services web sites to help those who have been, or will be, adversely affected by the Gulf Coast oil spill.
Although early fears of oil-covered beaches have yet to materialize, the financial losses for many Gulf Coast residents have already started. Many fishermen are out of work due to the oil spill as well as other seafood workers throughout the region. The firm launched its Mississippi oil spill lawyers site specifically to offer legal help to Mississippi fishermen and other business owners that will lose their incomes as a result of the oil spill.
As the oil slick drifts offshore, those businesses dealing in any aspect of property rental, travel and tourism, even real estate development, have been impacted already. The uncertainty of the oil spill’s impact has resulted in widespread cancellations in property rentals and hotel bookings. The law firm’s Florida oil spill attorneys site speaks to the specific problems felt by property rental and management agencies, travel & tourism businesses affected by the oil spill and even the businesses that supply them. The travel and tourism businesses affected by the oil spill are often small businesses without significant cash reserves or borrowing power. Those businesses depend upon the cash flow that the oil spill has already interrupted and will find it especially difficult to endure the loss of income due to the oil spill. Heninger Garrison Davis’ attorneys are offering no-cost consultations to help address the losses stemming from the oil spill that are just beginning to be felt or will occur as the resulting devastation worsens.
