Small Business Interruption Insurance Investigation

04.13.2020

Girard Sharp is investigating reports that insurance companies are refusing to provide coverage for insured losses that businesses have sustained due to interruptions caused by COVID-19 shelter-in-place orders.

Despite paying thousands of dollars in premiums, many small businesses are being told by insurers that policies do not cover their current business interruption claims. Insurers have relied on vague policy language or taken the position that policies cover physical loss or property damage from business closures resulting from more common natural disasters, such as flooding, but not the present closures associated with the coronavirus pandemic.

Small business owner? Even if your claim is denied, you still may be entitled to benefits.

If you are a business owner who has had to close or suspend your business due to the ongoing pandemic, but your insurer has denied business interruption insurance coverage, you may be entitled to compensation.
