Lost Tourism Revenue Claims
In 2010, the explosion on BP’s Deepwater Horizon oil rig caused millions of barrels of oil to pour into the ocean, profoundly affecting the entire Gulf of Mexico. One of the most immediate effects was the sudden drop in tourism to the Gulf region, as many vacationers chose to avoid this devastated area. For the numerous businesses in the Gulf coast states that rely heavily on tourism, this decrease in visitors in the aftermath of the spill proved disastrous.
Thankfully, businesses that were adversely affected by the drop in tourism following the Gulf oil spill may be entitled to compensation for their losses. By filing a claim with BP’s Deepwater Horizon Claims Center (DHCC), business owners can work to secure the funds they deserve. However, for many business owners and operators, it is impossible to take the time away from work to handle the legal complexities associated with these claims. Fortunately, a qualified attorney can manage your case to help restore your company’s financial health.
