Altior Law has teamed with Sommers Schwartz, P.C. and Hickey, Hauck, Bishoff & Jeffers, P.C. to form an alliance of preeminent Detroit law firms leading the charge in litigating actions related to insurance company denials of claims for business interruption insurance coverage for losses related to the COVID-19 crisis. Further information on this network and the services it is offering can be found at: https://bizinterruptioncoverage.com/. The three firms bring hundreds of years of experience in commercial litigation to what will likely prove to be contentious issues of contract interpretation.
Altior Law is already involved in three potential class action lawsuits against State Farm, Chubb Insurance Company, and Hanover Insurance Company, pending in federal court in Michigan. As anticipated, insurance companies appear to be, as a matter of course, denying all claims made under these policies. When a claim is denied, the insured’s recourse is to file an action against the insurance company to enforce the provisions of the policy of insurance.
If you, or one of your clients or anyone in your network has a business interruption insurance policy and has suffered business income losses related to COVID-19 or related government-ordered closures, please contact our firm to discuss your rights under your policy.
