“Can I file a business interruption claim for COVID-19?”
Insurance companies have already begun releasing statements about COVID-19, saying that coronavirus-related claims are not covered. This is not necessarily true. The real answer depends upon your coverage stated in your business policy.
Many North Carolina businesses that have already filed business interruption claims with their insurance carriers have been denied.
DO NOT let initial denial of your business interruption claim stop you from contacting a COVID-19 business interruption attorney for a full review of your policy and potential right to compensation under your policy.
Every policy is different, and you may be entitled to compensation for business losses suffered as a result of the coronavirus in North Carolina. Under many property policies, for example, the presence of COVID-19 at or near a business may qualify as “direct loss” and/or “physical loss.”
Riddle & Brantley attorneys will review your claim and help determine your legal right to recovery under your insurance policy, free of charge.
In most of these cases, we only get paid if we obtain a recovery for you.
Types of North Carolina businesses that may have a business interruption claim for COVID-19:
- Movie theaters
- Hair salons and barber shops
- Retail stores
- Churches and religious institutions
- Nonprofits and charities
- Any business forced to close due to government mandate
- And many more…
Most business insurance policies include limitations and exclusions that should be reviewed by a business interruption attorney in order to determine the full benefit due to the business owner.
Additionally, your policy may require you to take certain actions to limit your losses.
