Business interruption losses can be particularly problematic for insureds, with difficulties arising in relation to appropriate indemnity periods, inadequate sums insured and disputes over the quantification of the claim and the supporting evidence. We have links with the forensic expertise needed to assist in the preparation of claims to be pursued by litigation, arbitration or other forms of ADR.
Due to the complexities of calculating the correct business interruption cover, underinsurance or lack of insurance are common problems, often leading to potential claims against insurance intermediaries.
At Edwin Coe we understand how businesses operate and are adept at navigating the pitfalls of disputed business interruption claims. Such claims are not confined to “traditional” business interruption wording, and in recent months we have been at the forefront of advancing claim for losses suffered as a result of Covid-19.
