The Real Cost Of A Catastrophic Event Includes The Loss Of Business

Don’t let the insurance company try to tell you that you didn’t lose any revenue during reconstruction. Insurance companies often try to limit their financial exposure in commercial policy claims by denying the financial losses due to business interruption. During the time your building is undergoing renovations, damaged equipment is reinstalled and destroyed inventory is replaced, you face months of lost revenue and customer awareness. In addition to the physical damage, you face high costs of marketing to make sure customers return for business when you reopen. You have the right to claim the full amount of business interruption loss. Turn to us for experienced help evaluating the extent of your losses now – and in the future.

Demonstrated Success

In 2010, the Barton Law Firm handled a commercial claim for an apartment complex in Harris County. In that case, a foreign insurance company based out of London attempted to “adjust” the claim from overseas, eventually claiming that the apartment complex owner did not promptly make repairs – even though the insurance company refused to pay for any. Eventually, the carrier would spend many thousands of dollars defending a claim that resulted in a very favorable confidential settlement.

In February of this year, the Barton Law Firm was involved in a trial on behalf of a local Buddhist temple. Our client had severe roof damage that resulted in several hundred thousand dollars in interior damage. Rather than paying the claim, the temple’s commercial insurance carrier denied all responsibility, claiming that it did not receive timely notice of the claim. After trying nearly every policy defense, Sirius International Insurance Corporation offered nothing to settle the matter and elected to take the case to trial. A Harris County jury decided that Sirius improperly denied the temple’s claims and awarded nearly $2.6 million against the insurer, including $2 million in punitive damages.
