Help For Weather-Related Insurance Disputes And Other Business Interruptions

A nearby fire. Hurricane or severe weather warnings. A small fire in a storeroom. Over the course of a year, most businesses will experience an unexpected interruption in their operations.

When the interruption results in a downturn or loss of business, commercial insurance policies are supposed to cover the claim for damages. Too often, though, insurers find reasons to deny the claim or refute the extent of financial damages.

Fire, Hurricane Or Severe Weather — If You’ve Been Denied An Insurance Claim, I Can Help

I am commercial law specialist and attorney Jon Michael Smith, and I have focused my practice on Texas insurance claims law for more than 30 years. If you own or operate a business in Central Texas and have been denied the full amount of business interruption damages you are entitled to for your insurance claim, call my office in Austin today to set up a consult to discuss your situation. I will review your initial claim and the reasons your insurer is denying, delaying or reducing your claim.

My Expertise In Business Insurance Matters

I understand the strategies insurance companies use when denying or reducing claims. I believe that business owners know what the full cost of interruption can do to their bottom lines, and I fight hard to help them.

My experience as an insurance lawyer includes business interruption insurance claims related to:

  • Fire damage to the business property or nearby properties
  • Hurricane and severe weather warnings
  • Tornado and rain damage to the community
  • Equipment damage or maintenance shutdown
  • Police actions
