Business Interruption Insurance Claims
To mitigate the effect of your business slowdown, we encourage you to examine your insurance coverage and explore the possibility of filing business interruption claims (such as claims resulting from lost sales or interrupted supply agreements). Business interruption insurance generally helps protect against lost income resulting from a covered event. This coverage is usually reflected in a separate section of, or in an endorsement to, your policy. However, the availability of coverage differs by insurance carrier and policy and must be scrutinized closely. To the extent coverage is available to protect against Coronavirus losses, the designation of a national emergency, implementation of travel bans, and governmental shutdown orders may trigger the application of this coverage.
Black & LoBello’s attorneys are working overtime to mitigate the effects of the Coronavirus on businesses in our surrounding community. As part of our efforts, our attorneys will review insurance policies of Nevada-based businesses to assess their individualized business interruption coverage for Coronavirus and help you fight for your claim at discounted hourly rates.
