COVID-19 Business Interruptions Attorneys

Was Your Insurance Claim Denied? Let Us Fight For Your Business.

Companies across the world have endured unprecedented losses from the coronavirus pandemic. With few options for relief, continued closures and social distancing policies, and grim economic forecasts, businesses are bracing for even more.

For many, the only way to survive is insurance.

Unfortunately, the insurance industry is digging in on wrongfully refusing to pay policyholders for losses arising from the pandemic. This includes denying claims from policyholders who have purchased supplemental coverage for Business Interruption or Business Income Insurance, Contingent Business Interruption, Leader Property, Extra Expense, and Civil Authority.

Helping Clients Across The Carolinas

Though insurance carriers may argue losses arising from a “virus,” “bacteria,” or “act of God” are excluded, or that the pandemic does not constitute “physical loss or damage” required for coverage, companies may still have options:

  • In North & South Carolina, we believe there are circumstances where these exclusions may not be a valid basis to deny coverage. In addition, while many policies may contain these exclusions, some contain no or only partial exclusions.
  • It may be possible to establish “physical loss or damage” arising from the coronavirus, and denial of coverage for lack of physical loss or damage as improper.
  • In addition to payment for COVID-19 related business losses, claims against insurance companies may also seek additional compensation and attorneys’ fees over bad faith denials, above and beyond a policy’s coverage limits.
