Oil Spill Restaurant Losses

Running a restaurant is one of the most difficult business ventures that one can undertake. A restaurant must be able to produce reliably good food, provide quality service, and create a pleasing atmosphere for customers. Even with all of this hard work, however, sometimes there are external factors that can harm a restaurant, regardless of how good it may be. Restaurants in areas affected by the oil spill have experienced this hardship firsthand as their customer base has drastically decreased.

Economic Losses

Restaurants along the Gulf Coast, from Louisiana to Florida, have been negatively affected by the BP oil disaster. Word of oil washing ashore has caused many would-be tourists to cancel their vacation plans, leaving many establishments without the customer base that they rely on to thrive. Normally packed restaurants may find that they are losing huge summer profits because of their reduced clientele. In addition, oil along the coast has contaminated some seafood, making it more difficult and more expensive to find clean, quality seafood to serve to customers.

Businesses should not have to bear the burden of a mistake made by a large corporation, and our economic loss attorneys are committed to holding the responsible party liable in court.
