NEW COVID-19 RELATED CLAIMS — BUSINESS INTERRUPTION
If your business or the business that you work for has been closed or limited by the COVID-19 crisis — or by the government’s or public’s response to it — we may be ABLE TO HELP make a claim for the business and/or you. While insurance agents have been telling business owners that this crisis is not covered under their BUSINESS INTERRUPTION COVERAGE, this may not be true.
AKD WAS A MAJOR LEGAL PLAYER IN KATRINA BUSINESS INTERRUPTION AND BP OIL SPILL CLAIMS AND HAS ALREADY BEEN HEAVILY INVOLVED IN COVID-19
Due to the scientific research showing that the virus taints the property which it lands on, with the input of AKD and their own research, the GOVERNOR and MAYOR have stated in their LEGAL ORDERS that the governmental limitations and closures of businesses are linked to this temporary taint/damage to business property which could spread the virus if patrons and workers were in contact with it. As a result of this fact — and it’s basis in the closure ORDERS, AKD will argue that BUSINESS INTERRUPTION INSURANCE CLAIMS FOR COVID-19 SHOULD BE COVERED AND PAID.
Unfortunately, based on what has already been demonstrated, the insurance companies most likely will not honor these claims without a fight. Therefore, please call us if your business or employer has been impacted.
Employees may also be aided by their employer’s pursuit of these insurance claims, as employers are more likely to pay employees while the employee is not working if they can recover those losses from their insurer. Additionally, AKD is monitoring federal government actions which may assist employees. The details of these potential programs will develop in the days ahead.
