Today, more than ever, business interruption claims are playing a crucial role in helping small businesses stay afloat. COVID-19 has nearly shut down the economy during these unprecedented times.

In some cases, you may have to pursue legal action in order to get your insurance provider to pay out on your policy. Contact Fibich, Leebron, Copeland & Briggs, today at 713-614-0780 to schedule an initial consultation and explore your legal options.
In operating a business, there are many unforeseen events that may cause you to have to temporarily close your doors or suffer a sudden loss of revenue. To help you during these temporary shutdowns, your insurance policy may include business interruption coverage, also known as a business income policy.
Business interruption coverage is designed to cover day-to-day expenses, lost revenue, rent, and other operating expenses. Too often, insurance companies act in bad faith and deny claims under these policies. You need a skilled litigator who will hold these companies accountable.
Business interruption claims may be a matter of survival for you and your company’s livelihood. At Fibich, Leebron, Copeland & Briggs, we understand that this may be a difficult time for you, and we are here to help. Our experienced legal team will fight hard to protect your business interests and get you the money you need to keep your business running.
