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.

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.
CPLG is actively representing California business owners who have suffered losses because of the coronavirus pandemic. Whether you’ve made a claim that has been denied or you’re preparing to make a claim, we can help.
To be eligible for compensation, you must meet the following criteria:
- You own a business in the state of California
- Your company has been financially impacted by the coronavirus pandemic
- You have a business insurance policy that includes Business Interruption Insurance
As business owners, we recognize that this is an unprecedented time that has negatively impacted a huge cross section of our business community and we want to help our fellow business owners keep going.
When you work with CPLG, you don’t have to worry about whether or not you can afford first-rate legal assistance. We’re handling these cases on a contingency fee basis, which requires no hourly fee and no retainer. If there is no recovery on the claim, there is no fee owed and we will advance all costs, which are only reimbursable if there is a recovery.
