COVID-19 Business Interruption Claims

As we are all aware, the current COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in the closing of business operations that have been deemed “non-essential”. Local, national, and international health organizations, including the World Health Organization and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, have issued recommendations and directives to suspend public gatherings. In addition, the majority of local and state governments have also ordered restrictions on the operation of non-essential businesses and/or ordered residents to shelter-in-place.

In anticipation of catastrophes, many businesses obtained insurance coverage known as Business Interruption Insurance.

Sahm was an amazing lawyer. He walked me through the entire process and told me what I can expect. First and foremost, he cared about my health and well-being. He wanted me to get better and referred me to excellent doctors and therapists. Finally, he got me a judgement that was more than fair. Without a doubt, Sahm is a dedicated attorney that you can feel 100% safe with and can count on. His work is flawless and organized and his communication is key! I would highly recommend him to everyone and anyone I know as they would be, without a doubt- In the hands of the best Attorney.

I have had only positive experience with this Firm, they worked on my mom case we were able to settle for $100,000.  When originally the insurance company wanted to only offer us a measly $15,000.00, Sam convinced them to pay more. Very happy with this firm they are an advocate with competent staff. Sam Tabibian and his team are just amazing!  They provided the best medical care and they took care of everything.  I strongly recommend Century Park Law Group, Sam, Sahm and Robert.  If you want to get compensated justly, hire this law firm.  You will not regret it.

I can't begin to start by saying how great of a lawyer Sahm is. I have been dealing with a case that happened three years ago and he has been there for me throughout It all. He constantly checked up on my injuries to make sure I was okay and showed constant care. I don't know how I would have been able to go through something for so long had it not been for Sahm. He is extremely professional and diligent in his work and you will feel very confident in your case if you decide to go with Sahm. Besides him being a great lawyer, the office of Century Park Law Group itself is breathtaking!

How Does Business Interruption Insurance Work?

Business Interruption Insurance is a type of coverage intended to compensate policyholders for their losses if a business is forced to close temporarily. Most typically, it’s most company applied during events like fires and natural disasters. Business Interruption Insurance can cover things like lost revenue, employee wages, rent, business loan payments, and taxes.

Benefits of Working with an Attorney

Insurance companies are happy to take premiums and not provide policyholders with the benefits of the Business Interruption coverage needed to sustain their operations. Unfortunately, as business losses continue to mount, insurance companies have taken a position of summarily denying these claims. These issues have already become the subject of litigation around the country.Dealing with big insurance companies can be very overwhelming, but at CPLG, we have years of experience taking on insurance companies and it’s given us a lot of insight to the tactics they use to try and deny claims.In the case of the coronavirus pandemic, we know they’ll try to argue that a company’s location wasn’t physically damaged by COVID-19. We know they’ll try to argue the semantics of a policy. We know they’ll try to say they can’t be liable for claims involving business closures that are temporary, but indefinite.Not only do we understand how insurance companies work, we know how to use the law to navigate the policy language and advocate on behalf of our clients to have coverage afforded. We’ll be on your side every step of the way to fight to help you get the compensation your business needs.
