The Basics of a Business Interruption Claim

Oct 17, 2019

If a business is closed, then the owners are missing out on potential revenue. On most occasions, business owners have control over choosing when to close their company’s operations. However, there are special circumstances where business owners forfeit this control. For example, business operations could be forced to close due to commercial property loss or damage. If a negligent party is responsible for your business closing, then you may have the option of filing a business interruption claim.

The attorneys at the Law Offices of F. Craig Wilkerson Jr. have experience helping business owners recover losses due to business closure. We will aggressively fight the insurance company and negligent party that are preventing you from receiving your entitled compensation.
