Insurers you can claim against

Your Questions Answered

Yes, these are very unusual circumstances. If you decided to close your business to customers due to a fear of the pandemic, that would be seen as a reasonable reason to claim.

Furthermore, it would be difficult for some businesses to stay open and implement social distancing measures. So, if you closed your business to protect your staff and customers, then you may have a valid claim.

Yes, as the government grants are immediate help for businesses, and the government is aware that business owners will also be making claims against their insurance policies. You can still proceed with your claim with My Business Solicitor.

There are numerous areas that you can make a claim for, including:

  • Actual and/or forecast loss of revenue
  • Business costs such as rent
  • Wages
  • Charges from loans acquired due to COVID

My Business Solicitor will pick through the wording on your insurance policy using our expertise. We will make sure that your claim is presented properly and can stand up as valid.

Yes – if you tried to claim yourself and were denied, you have a solid case. If your policy has a valid business interruption clause, then My Business Solicitor will give you the option of bringing action against your insurer on a no-win-no-fee basis. The insurer might reconsider and pay out, or it can proceed to court, where a judge will decide. For this service, we may take up to 30% of what your insurance company pays out, but this may vary.

Yes, you can still start the assessment process with My Business Solicitor, but you’ll also need to contact your insurance company. You should request copies of your policy: documents, schedule, certificate and booklet, which they legally must give to you. Once you receive them, all you have to do is send them us and we’ll start your free assessment.

No, we operate on a no-win-no-fee basis. Starting your claim is completely free. Charges are subject to your claim being successful and will come out the money we recover from your insurer on your behalf.

No – we operate on a no-win-no-fee basis. If your claim is unsuccessful then you won’t receive any money and won’t have to pay a penny. The only exception to this is if you have told us anything that was not true or misled us in any way about your claim.

Yes, the size of your business doesn’t matter, only the wording of your policy does.

If your claim is successful, My Business Solicitor may take up to 30% of the money you receive from your insurance company. However, the exact percentage may vary.

This depends on the individual circumstances of your business and your insurer.

It’s a very simple process. Once you have submitted your free assessment form online, we will contact you about the next steps.
