Business interruption insurance lawyers

We are ready to take action to help you access your entitlements when your insurer has undervalued or denied your claim, and right wrong.

Who can make a business insurance case?

If your business has suffered financial loss, damage or theft, you may be entitled to financial assistance through your insurer. At times, when things go wrong, insurance companies can go to great lengths to avoid paying out clients covered under their policy. Our lawyers are experts in bringing justice when insurance companies wrongly undervalue or deny claims.

Your claim may be in relation to: 

  • Property damage or loss  

  • Consequential losses such as loss of profits  

  • Stock loss or damage 

  • Accounting expenses 

It’s important to review the terms of your policy as conditions vary between insurers and policies. Our team of expert business insurance lawyers can help you to understand your rights and gain access to your full entitlements.

Do you have a case?

Legal process for rejected business interruption insurance claims

We listen and assess your case confidentially

During your initial consultation over the phone, we’ll take the time to listen and understand your individual needs. We’ll then map out the next steps and explain all the options available to you. 

We'll build your case and keep you informed

Your expert legal team will work with you to review the terms of your insurance policy and gather all the information including the financial evidence needed to support your claim. All evidence will be considered so we can assess your options and provide guidance tailored to your specific situation.

We'll negotiate where appropriate to settle your claim

This may involve directly approaching the organisation concerned to engage in informal negotiations outside of the court process.  

We know that you’ve been through enough. Wherever possible we will seek to minimise any stress this process could have for you and resolve your claim in a way that is sensitive to your needs.

If required, go to court

Only a small percentage of cases result in a court hearing. If this happens, we will be by your side; providing support, compassion and skilled legal representation every step of the way.

Resolve your case

We will passionately work to deliver the outcomes you deserve and maximise your entitlements.
