Insurers Failing to Pay Business Interruption Claims due to Covid-19

COVIDThe COVID virus has caused many small businesses, especially restaurants, from operating. Numerous small business owners pay insurance company premiums for business interruption (BI) coverage. However, during the ongoing Covid-19 virus shutdowns, many insurance companies are denying business claims and withholding coverage. If this is your current situation, an attorney from Marc J. Bern & Partners will investigate your insurance company policy. If you have a solid claim we can pursue, we will work tirelessly to make your insurance company honor your policy and pay for losses your restaurant or other business suffered during this time.

If insurers are:

  • Stating Pandemic is not covered under your policy
  • Asserting that financial loss does not trigger coverage
