Crestiview Bankruptcy Attorneys Highlight the Devastation to Gulf Breeze Businesses Due to a Major Bridge Closure

File for Bankruptcy in Gulf Breeze

Crestview, Fla. – Hurricane Sally tore through the Pensacola area in early September, causing the Pensacola Bay Bridge to be struck by a barge, ultimately making the bridge undrivable. The local attorneys, Lewis and Jurnovoy, predict a heart-breaking loss for Gulf Breeze businesses, which may lead to an influx of new bankruptcy claims in Crestview and the surrounding areas.  

More than 60,000 cars typically cross the Pensacola Bay Bridge daily, providing a steady flow for the businesses in the area. The bridge closure has stopped traffic in the area, hindering locals and tourists from easily using the services of the nearby businesses. Many Gulf Breeze businesses may have to file for bankruptcy to lighten financial pressures caused by the bridge closure and lack of customers coming in. When a company finds itself in this situation, the type of business they are, as well as the type of bankruptcy they require will indicate whether the company can continue operating after filing. 

Because the bridge will be out of commission for six months or more, bankruptcy will become the only option for many of the businesses in the area. Many locals are hoping to support Gulf Breeze businesses by organizing events and deliberately choosing to shop in Gulf Breeze for regular needs. Even so, once the bridge reopens, the Gulf Breeze that locals know, and love may have changed completely.

Lewis and Jurnovoy have been trusted bankruptcy lawyers in the Florida Panhandle for over 22 years and understand what a heart-breaking loss the bridge closure is to the community of Gulf Breeze. The law office of Lewis and Jurnovoy assists financially struggling individuals filing for chapter 13 or chapter 7 bankruptcy. Both Lewis and Jurnovoy, along with their staff, work hard to achieve the best financial remedy for each client’s situation.
