Hurricanes can leave many business owners with massive amounts of property damaged or destroyed, including business property used for transportation or distribution. From the vehicles themselves to garages or docking bays, the damage to these properties may have had a devastating effect on a business’s viability. However, if the business owner had the property insurance coverage, they should have received adequate repayment for these damage. If an insurer didn’t provide this coverage, there may be grounds for legal recourse.
The flood waters and wind damage linked to hurricanes cause untold millions of dollars of damages to businesses across the East Coast. Vehicles used for transportation or distribution and the facilities used to house or repair these vehicles may have been damaged or destroyed in this storm’s wake.

Business owners have the right to receive fair coverage under the terms of their policy. Insurers who fail to live up to the terms of these contracts may be held legally accountable for their misdeeds.
