Claim Denied after the 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic?

Business Interruption Insurance Lawyer

Were you covered by Business Interruption Insurance but denied? If your claim began after being forced to close to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic you may have a case. Although insurance companies have denied many cases citing a lack of coverage for viruses and bacteria, a new Ohio bill may force them to pay. However there is some criteria that a business must follow to collect compensation.

First of all you must have made a claim to your insurance company about a closure associated with the virus. Next your business must be in Ohio. Then you must have evidence of having 100 or less employees. Finally you must prove that you have business interruption insurance and were covered before the March 9, 2020 state of emergency issued by Ohio. Dyer, Garofalo, Mann, & Shultz has the resources to ensure that your case has the best possible representation.

 

The bill passed March 24, 2020 states that “every policy of insurance insuring against loss or damage to property, which includes the loss of use and occupancy and business interruption, in force in [Ohio] on the effective date of this section, shall be construed to include among the covered perils under that policy, coverage for business interruption due to global virus transmission or pandemic during the state of emergency.”
