Video Alert: Policyholders Can Find Support for COVID-19 Business Interruption Claims in Unexpected Places

By P. Wesley Lambert on April 28, 2020

Brouse McDowell Litigation Co-Chair and Insurance Recovery partner Wesley Lambert discusses recent developments relating to policyholders’ insurance coverage prospects for Business Interruption claims arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. In this brief video, Mr. Lambert discusses how policyholders can draw support from government directives and court decisions arising from the pandemic to show that “physical loss or damage” has occurred, triggering coverage under their property policies. He examines one of the first legal decisions related specifically to this pandemic, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court decision in Friends of DeVito v. Wolf, and explains how this decision and other governmental orders provide useful insight into how courts might equate this situation to other, more well-traveled areas of the law.



Policyholders should continue to consult the terms of the policies, document any property damage and loss of income traceable to the pandemic, and consult with their brokers and legal professionals regarding the advisability of making a claim for insurance coverage.
