COVID-19 Lawsuits

COVID-19 Lawsuits in New Orleans

Our Attorneys Can Help You With Your Business Interruption Claim

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic changed the world in a matter of weeks. Like many other states, Louisiana ordered its residents to stay at home and officials shut down bars, restaurants, and “non-essential” businesses.

If you are a local business owner, the pandemic may have hit you harder than anyone. You may also be looking for ways to stay afloat during this trying time.

If you have business interruption insurance, The Voorhies Law Firm may be able to help.

Reviewing Your Policy

Our attorneys can help you determine whether or not your insurance company covers infectious disease outbreaks. Some policies have explicit coverage for these kinds of events, and others do not specifically mention viruses in their definition of “natural disasters.” While most insurance companies define disasters in terms of physical property damage, others have more forgiving language.

Before you make a claim, you will need to take a closer look at your insurance policy and make sure you are interpreting the language correctly.

Making a Claim

If your insurance policy allows infectious disease claims, our legal team can help you file one and walk you through the claims process from start to finish. We can also help you gather the appropriate evidence and keep a detailed file in case of any disputes.

For now, we encourage you to document any effects COVID-19 has had on your business and call us at (504) 475-2455 to schedule an appointment.

For your safety, we can conduct our free consultations by phone, or via an online platform like Skype, Zoom, or Google Hangouts.

Bad Faith Insurance Lawsuits

Insurance companies will undoubtedly face countless claims during these trying times. As a result, they may try to deny your claim, regardless of its validity. When this happens, you will need an experienced lawyer to call attention to bad faith practices. Even the possibility of a lawsuit can quickly change the way an insurer deals with your claim.

Stay Informed

Because this situation is unprecedented, all our attorneys can offer you at this time is legal advice regarding business interruption claims. We are happy to assist in any way we can, but we are not medical professionals and these are uncharted waters for everyone in every field.

For the most up-to-date and accurate information about the COVID-19, please consult the Centers for Disease and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
