As a business owner, you are well aware of the ever-present occurrence of the unexpected. Business income insurance may be a very necessary tool when the unexpected happens. For instance, your business may sustain a sewage backup if the main sewer line in the street backs up. Business owners can expect to close their doors to prevent the spread of sewage containing harmful bacteria and disease-causing pathogens.
For restaurant owners, sewer backups can lead to prolonged business interruption, profit losses, and employee resignations. If you find yourself in such an unfortunate predicament, you will need to hire a skilled business interruption attorney to manage your business interruption claim, property damage claim, and contents damage claim for damaged equipment destroyed by the backup.
There are a variety of reasons why your sewer can backup. It’s a perfectly common situation that many commercial property owners face. Some of the most common causes are:
* Grease Buildup
* Soil Settlement
* Root Infiltration
* Collapsed Pipes
* Misaligned Joints
* Improperly Flushed Items
The faster you hire a business interruption attorney, the better off you will be.
While you are managing your business affairs and the sewage cleanup professionals are getting your business ready for re-open, your business interruption attorney can be working to maximize your insurance settlement. A skilled business interruption attorney understands what is required to prove the financial loss from your unexpected business interruption. Don’t risk your claim being underpaid or unnecessarily delayed. You can’t afford to stay closed for long.
