Small businesses losing lots of money during the COVID shutdown may expect insurance to cover their losses. Unfortunately, many insurers are denying COVID-19-related claims, leaving small businesses to fend for themselves. Several Pittsburgh restaurants have taken legal action against their insurers in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas claiming that financial losses sustained during this pandemic should be covered by their insurance policies.
Businesses that should consider filing claims include restaurants, beauty salons, retailers, physician practices, medical centers, physical therapists, chiropractors and farmers. Any business that operates from a place of business that has been closed or experienced a significant downturn in business should consider making a claim. These lawsuits are looking to help cover business income and COVID-19-related losses following the order by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf to shut down nonessential businesses back on March 19th.
