Gulf Oil Spill Claims in Metairie, Louisiana

What is considered to be a "legitimate claim" in the aftermath of the Gulf oil spill? A so-called legitimate claim as defined by the CEO of British Petroleum (BP) may be very different from what is considered a legitimate claim sought by a bayou shrimper, restaurant owner or resort manager on the Gulf Coast.

Although BP is said to have paid out $80 million dollars to over 10,000 people in Louisiana, Florida, Alabama and Mississippi, it appears to residents of the Gulf Coast that BP's oil is spilling out at a much faster rate than BP's cash.

The environmental and toxic substance attorneys at The Cochran Firm who are handling claims for our clients regarding the Gulf oil spill know the nature of industries and businesses along the Gulf Coast can bring in good sums of money in a very short period of time during the season. However, people find it difficult to provide evidence in the form of bank statements, pay stubs and the like to back up their claims. Restaurants and resorts see receipts dwindling, but how is it possible to prove the oil spill alone is at fault?

For these reasons, it is important to have experienced legal representation from the skilled attorneys at The Cochran Firm on your side in your legal battle that is sure to take place as claims start pouring into BP.

If you live in and around the Metairie, Louisiana area and you have been adversely affected by the Gulf oil spill, please contact the Louisiana oil spill attorneys at The Cochran Firm without delay to protect your legal rights and make certain you get the financial compensation you need to sustain your way of life while battling this disaster of historic proportions.
