A recent survey of our membership revealed that more than 50% of respondents have realized a minor negative impact from the oil crisis while 28% have realized a major negative impact on their business. 90% of those that responded as having sustained some type of impact on their business have not yet filed a claim with BP.
Because many people have questions about the legal issues associated with the Deepwater Horizon/BP Oil Spill in the Gulf, we have put together a panel of local attorneys to provide legal guidance on a variety of topics, including the claims process, class action suits, multi-district litigation, how to document and track losses, potential claimants and more.
"We appreciate the opportunity to partner with WSRE in our effort to assist local businesses in their efforts to recover from the effects of the oil spill." said Blaise Adams, Chairman, Pensacola Bay Area Chamber of Commerce.
After the informational session, attendees will have the opportunity to ask the legal panel questions.
The town hall meeting will be taped to air on WSRE Thursday, July 1 at 7 p.m..
