September 8, 2011 Blackout: Legal Recourse? San Diego Law Firm Laureti & Associates Working to Determine Next Steps for Local Businesses

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 28, 2011) - Anthony R. Laureti, Esq., Laureti & Associates, announced that his law firm is working with business owners to determine whether or not there is legal recourse for economic loss during the September 8, 2011 blackout. If legal grounds exist, Laureti & Associates and its attorneys will be presenting claims on behalf of businesses in San Diego County and surrounding areas.

Assuming there was negligence attributed to one of the several utility companies potentially responsible for the blackout of September 8, 2011, across Arizona, Southern California and Mexico, businesses could seek compensation for their provable economic losses. These include, but are not limited to, spoiled food, loss of profits for closing a business early, ruined electronics from power surges. Essentially any monetary loss incurred as a result of losing power is recoverable.

"Our firm has experience assisting business owners with similar claims. And, although the exact cause of the blackout is still being investigated, it appears likely provable claims will be paid," said Laureti.

"Many business owners did not have insurance coverage for their loss. In some cases where there was coverage, it did not fully compensate business owners for all of their losses due to a high deductible or policy exclusions," Laureti said.

Laureti & Associates has 22 years of experience in presenting claims for economic losses to various entities including utility companies and understands the process and most importantly, understands the law as it relates to what is recoverable. Attorney fees and costs are only paid if there is a recovery.
