Q. I have a small business that has taken a big financial hit since shutting down due to my state’s stay-at-home order.
A: You’re not alone with this issue. Unfortunately, business owners all over the country are facing the same issue with their business interruption insurance coverage. Insurers are looking for one way or another to avoid paying claims for coronavirus-related business losses, which is unfair and unacceptable. Most (if not all) of these policies do not have language specifically related to a pandemic, but insurers are citing things like language related to virus exclusions, which some companies added to their policies after the 2003 SARS outbreak. But I hear you that your policy has neither, so your insurer’s denial is likely illegitimate. Since COVID-19 related insurance claims are uncharted waters, the best thing to do is to get the help of a lawyer, because doing so tends to make insurance companies listen up when they act in bad faith. And actually, filing an insurance bad faith lawsuit might be the only recourse to get the reimbursement you deserve. Feel free to give me a call. I would be happy to explain further and give you some advice without obligation.
