Drops in Tourism

Many businesses along the Gulf of Mexico coast rely heavily on tourism for income and sales. Unfortunately, when the 2010 Gulf oil spill occurred, some businesses saw a large drop in tourism due to the effects of the oil spill on the coast and nearby areas. When a business suffers because of a drop in tourism, business owners may be able to recover financial compensation from insurance companies to help supplement this loss of income.

An oil spill is damaging enough for people and natural environments, but it can be even more detrimental if a business’ source of income is damaged or removed completely. If you or someone you know has suffered financially from a drop in tourism as a result of the 2010 Gulf oil spill, contact the experienced Gulf oil spill lawyers of Williams Hart today by calling 800-821-1544 to discuss how we can help you recover financially.

Other Business Losses

In addition to a loss in tourism, a business can suffer from many effects after an oil spill, including:

  • Damage to marine life associated with business
  • Damage to surrounding businesses and overall coastal economy
  • Loss in income / advertising / marketability
  • Structural and foundational damages

Although tourism is popularly seen as leisurely, it actually drives the economy of many coastal businesses, and if an oil spill causes a drop in tourism, businesses owners may be able to file for damages.
