Tornadoes can spread destruction over a large area, impacting countless businesses and communities. Damage often results from either a direct hit from a funnel cloud or any accompanying windstorm, rain, and hail, impacting commercial and industrial businesses of all sizes. Tornado damage can leave a business open to additional property loss, lost profits, business interruption and financial hardship.
Recovering From Tornado Damage to Your Business
If an insurance company fails to promptly investigate a commercial tornado claim, delays payment, fails to cover all covered damage or denies coverage, they could be acting in bad faith. We are insurance litigation professionals who can help your business take action against your commercial insurance carrier that has operated in bad faith.
Businesses may be subject to a variety of bad faith practices, including:
- Denied property damage claims
- Claims that the damage resulted from wear and tear, poor maintenance or other excuses
- Failure to promptly pay claims
- Failure to properly and promptly investigate and assess tornado damage claims
- Low-ball claims assessments and settlement offers
- Accusations that your building did not meet specified code requirements
Insurance law is clear. Insurance companies are required to show reasonable cause for denying or delaying payment on your tornado claim if the damage is covered under your policy. This is as true for small, medium, or large commercial tornado claims as it is for owners of residential property.
