Damage to your property due to a storm or other event can be devastating to your business. Commercial property damage not only affects your building but can interfere with your livelihood and the return on your investment. Many business owners have property insurance to guard against this interference. If your commercial insurance carrier denies you proper compensation for your loss, you could have a bad faith claim.

Commercial insurance disputes are often focused on:
- Whether repair or replacement of the commercial property is appropriate.
- The cause of the loss and whether it is covered under the insurance policy.
- The cost of commercial property repairs.
- The loss of investment value or business income caused by the damage.
- The estimated value of the destroyed business equipment or other insured items.
- The replacement cost of the commercial property if the building was damaged beyond repair.
Insurance companies will often try to pay out as little as possible, significantly underestimating the extent of losses or misrepresenting the cause of the loss. Other times insurers will delay or deny legitimate claims with the hope policyholders will eventually give up their fight. Insurance policyholders do have legal recourse, however. Commercial property owners can protect their investments by enlisting the help of a proven commercial property damage lawyer to help them in insurance recovery.
Hold Insurance Companies Liable for Bad Faith Tactics
Commercial property owners have insurance coverage to ensure that a catastrophic wind or hail storm, fire or water loss doesn’t destroy the financial stability of the business venture or cause the property investment to decline or become a total loss.
Ideally, insurance companies would be understanding of the devastation caused by a storm and would pay out claims in a timely and fair manner after a natural disaster. Unfortunately, this is often not the way things work in the insurance industry, and commercial property insurance disputes commonly remain unsettled for several years.
For commercial property owners waiting for their claim to be honored, it is advantageous to seek legal assistance to combat your insurer’s bad faith tactics. A commercial property damage attorney experienced in catastrophes can pursue bad faith claims in court and ensure the policyholder receives the money needed to repair their property.
