PENSACOLA, Fla. (WEAR) — One local law firm is working to hold Skanska USA accountable. This comes after 22 runaway barges wreaked havoc on the Pensacola community during Hurricane Sally. They demolished several sections of the Three Mile Bridge and others washed ashore in people’s backyards.
Now law firm Aylstock, Witkin, Kreis & Overholtz, PLLC says they’re working on behalf of individuals and businesses who feel Skanska has negatively impacted their lives.
Associate Nicole Guntner says this could come in the form of teachers whose commute times have gone from 15 minutes to an hour and half. It could also come as businesses who have lost customers because there are less visitors to Gulf Breeze and Pensacola Beach.
“We trusted them to connect our communities… Pensacola, Gulf Breeze, Pensacola Beach. They betrayed our trust. Not only that they further damaged our community,” says Guntner.
Channel 3 asked just how many people have called to file a complaint but because of attorney client privilege, we couldn’t get an exact number.
They’re asking Skanska to financially cover all the losses individuals and businesses are experiencing.
If you believe you have a claim, you can call 850-202-1010 or visit www.hurricanesallylawsuit.com.
Guntner says they plan to file their first lawsuit in the next week.
