Examples of Business Claims
In Central Texas, the summer of 2011 will be remembered for historic heat records, a lengthy drought, and several deadly, destructive wildfires. The Bastrop and Steiner Ranch fires had an especially strong impact on businesses in Travis and Bastrop Counties. Businesses there suffered interruptions due to:
- Fire damage
- Loss of income
Business owners often have insurance policies that are meant to protect them in the event of disasters and disaster-related damages. Unfortunately, insurance companies are not always cooperative when it comes to processing, approving, and paying out on these claims. When insurance companies withhold payments to businesses that have suffered calamities, it can be extremely difficult or impossible for those businesses to reopen their doors.
