The destruction caused by hurricanes up and down the eastern seaboard have left many business owners with the extensive financial damages caused by the loss of income and property damages. While many business owners turned to their insurance companies to provide critical financial relief under the terms of their policy, some insurance agents routinely failed to correctly assess the actual damages sustained by their policyholders. As a result, the compensation many businesses were offered for repairs was significantly undercut and insufficient.
When insurance companies are assessing the damages sustained by businesses after a hurricane, their agents must act in good faith and correctly assess all the damages associated with the hurricane, including:
Structural damages sustained by a business
Product damages sustained by a business
The loss of income during reconstruction
Our legal team may be able to help you recover the losses your business sustained during a hurricane as covered by your policy so that you may move on.
