Commercial property owners face a variety of challenges when it comes to protecting their investments from unforeseen damage. Natural disasters, severe weather events, instances of vandalism, and more all have the potential to leave a business in disarray. When these unfortunate events happen, a commercial property owner’s insurance provider is among the first to be contacted. While this may give the insured peace of mind, it is often short-lived, as insurance providers are inclined to work with an eye toward their own interests to the detriment of policyholders – often leading to the need for a lawsuit to be filed.
Commercial property damage lawsuits often arise due to an insurance company acting in bad faith and resorting to unethical practices to pressure its insured into accepting less value than their claim is worth or no claims payment at all. Insurance companies make more money when policyholders do not file claims and when the company delays payment of claims or fails to pay claims submitted under policies. Business owners and commercial property owners making commercial property insurance claims after a natural disaster may face disputes with insurers concerning flood damage, policy limits, replacement costs, physical loss or damage, cost of repair damages, business interruption, and/or application of exclusions.
When an insurance provider refuses to fully and promptly pay a valid commercial property damage claim, the resulting losses can be disastrous. These actions are particularly egregious and leave the policyholder with nowhere to turn in their time of need.
