Many businesses from Key West throughout the Florida Panhandle are already feeling the effects of the worst oil spill in history. Tourists are already cancelling housing and hotel reservations as well as fishing charters. It is important that businesses start to document cancellations and confirm those cancellations in writing so that they can later establish damages if a lawsuit is filed.
If the oil spill does reach Florida shores, then the types and extent of damages will increase exponentially. Freidin Dobrinsky is presently working with law firms in Tampa and the Keys to assist clients in evaluating their potential claims and help them prepare to protect their businesses from suffering irreparable economic damages.
