Commercial Property Damage Claims

New York Commercial Insurance Claim Denial Attorneys

Representing NY business owners after catastrophe

When commercial property owners face a devastating loss because of property damage, they trust that the insurance policy that should cover them does its job. Unfortunately, insurance companies are always focused on the bottom line and that usually constitutes paying out less or not at all. When commercial property owners are faced with damage “not covered” by their insurance policy, it is important for them to consider their legal options. In many cases, the policy language lends itself to interpretation, often against the rights and best interests of the policyholder.

Commercial Property Insurance

Insurance policies are in place to restore you and your property back to pre-loss conditions. If your business was affected by the incident, your policy should help your business recover. Unfortunately, faced with a major loss and its effects, the insured party is tasked with the investigation and documentation of the loss. When a loss occurs, many are quick to settle the matter without taking the time to conduct due diligence and proper analyzation. Most insured parties are not familiar with their policy, including limitations on the coverage, deductibles, conditions precedent, and the requirements needed to make the claim. In addition, blindly accepting an insurance company adjuster’s opinion or offer can lead to the recovery of far less than what a business deserves. Commercial property policies often have language regarding:

  • Physical property damage
  • Business interruptions
  • Extra expense, including moving costs and other costs that lead a business back to normal operation
  • Contingent business interruptions
  • Interim payroll coverage
  • Loss of rents
  • Extended period of indemnity
  • Loss of ingress or egress

If your policy does not have language regarding business interruption insurance, you may need to consider having a separate policy. When faced with so many complicated factors, it is important to have the legal support you need to ensure that your rights and your business or property are duly compensated for your loss, per your policy.
