Destin Oil Spill Lawsuit Lawyers

The Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion that occurred on April 20th, 2010, triggered the largest oil spill and environmental disaster in our nation’s history. The massive flow of oil into the Gulf of Mexico has already brought fishing to a halt and is endangering the natural ecosystem as well as the economies and geography on land.

Destin and other coastal communities that attract visitors with their beautiful beaches and aquatic activities are experiencing a dramatic increase in cancellations and anticipate a slowdown in tourism. This is a story that is playing out all along the Gulf Coast, and local residents, workers, and businesses are bound to bear the brunt of the pain.

Economic Impact

As the oil makes its way toward land, the kind and extent of the economic damage that it may cause to Destin and other communities expands. From the moment the oil began to taint the water, fishing, shrimping, and other ventures that are based far out in the water started to experience losses. The threat of oil and tar balls on the beaches has cut into the revenues of hotels, restaurants, retail stores, and other tourist-driven businesses.

Properties along the waterfront may sustain oil damage, and as the oil creeps inland through waterways or is carried by storms, it can affect homes and business establishments seemingly far away from the beach. Lost income, lost jobs, lost revenues, lost property value, and property rendered unusable by the oil spill damage are all looming prospects.

Fair Compensation

Unlike a natural disaster, in which there is not likely to be a specific party that could be considered legally liable for the economic damages that one might experience, the Gulf oil spill disaster may be attributed to the actions and failures of BP and other contractors. Accordingly, you may be able to pursue financial compensation through a legal action against one or more of these parties which might serve to offset the current and predicted future economic losses that you or your business may face.

Building a successful case requires a skilled and experienced economic loss attorney who is passionately committed to helping aggrieved coastal residents to protect their legal rights and interests. We may be able to help you seek compensation for:

  • Condo Damage
  • Home Damage
  • Business Damage
  • Hotel and Resort Claims
