Alabama Restaurant Association Hires Legal Council to Help Members Damaged by BP Oil Spill

Montgomery, AL: The Alabama Restaurant Association (ARA) has retained lawyers to provide legal counsel to businesses suffering as a result of the BP oil spill. Restaurants and other hospitality industry businesses have lost and unfortunately continue to lose significant revenue as a result of the oil spill, which severely impacted the availability and pricing of commercial seafood, and crippled the tourist industry at the beginning of its peak season.

"Initially we, as many of you, were hopeful that BP would fully and fairly compensate your losses through the claims process," writes ARA President Lawrence M. Fidel, CAE, in a letter to his membership. "Unfortunately, the BP claims process has miserably failed to live up to these expectations as reflected through the outright denial of claims based on arbitrary rules such as how close the location of a business is to the Gulf Coast. Many of our members not in proximity to the coast have been and continue to be affected financially as a result of the oil spill."

The lawfirm retained has filed a number of lawsuits in District Courts in Alabama, Florida and Louisiana to help protect businesses and individuals harmed by the oil spill. Complaints have been filed on behalf of a broad range of clients including commercial fishing businesses, retail establishments, the restaurant industry, real estate management companies, property owners, persons suffering personal injuries and others.
