Business Interruption Insurance: How to Fight Insurance Companies on Pandemic Claims

If your business was shut down due to the coronavirus and your insurance company
denied your claim for these business interruption losses, here’s three things you can do
to protect yourself.

First, get together your entire business insurance policy along with all the addendums
and the endorsements. Insurance companies are citing provisions improperly and taking
them out of context as a basis for their denials. They’re often wrong. You need your
policy to prove it. Second, try to record your losses in real time. If you haven’t been
doing that yet, try to do that soon. Go back. This will make the best evidence for proving
what your losses are, when they’re fresh in your mind

And third, submit your claim in writing and do it properly. You may want a lawyer to do
this for you. You want to document what you’re entitled to, what your losses are, and
you want to set the insurance company up so that if they deny your claim, they cite the
bases for those denials. Ask them to do that in your claim. Once they submit those bases
for denials, that’s where the work begins to get the coverage you’re entitled to. Thanks.
