In recent times Edwin Coe has been at the forefront in advancing claims for losses suffered as a result of Covid-19.  Many of the issues surrounding such claims were resolved in the recent FCA test cases, but a number of crucial developments are still in play, and we have been advising clients on how best to present such claims.  The particular issues include:

  • multiple claims for short indemnity periods under infectious disease wordings
  • claims under non-damage denial of access clauses
  • claims for furlough payments deducted by insurers as savings in the calculation of the loss
  • aggregation
  • claims for Covid-19 business interruption losses under multiple clauses appearing in the same policy.

Examples of our recent work and the press coverage associated with it can be found in the links below:
