Does Your Insurance Cover Business Equipment Damages?

A Board-Certified* Lawyer Who Understands Insurance Company Tactics

Protecting your commercial building against unforeseen weather, fire or other catastrophic damage is the most important step you can take when operating a successful business. When damage occurs, you have the right to file a claim for damages, to help you get your business up and running again as quickly as possible. If your insurance company refuses to pay or delays payment, the financial effects can be devastating.

If you have filed a claim on your business property insurance policy but have been denied or not paid for full repair or replacement value of the building, inventory contents or business equipment, you have the right to sue for damages. Many policies also include coverage for business interruption costs.
