Do you own or operate a hotel or motel? If so, you’ve come to the right place to get a commercial insurance dispute resolved.
If any number of rooms in your hotel or motel have been damaged in the aftermath of a disaster or severe weather event, this directly affects the number of guests your property can accommodate. A significant amount of business and vacationers consistently travel throughout the United States, and any downtime can be devastating to the owner or operator of a hotel or motel.
For hotels and motels, it is key to be able to meet occupancy demands at any given time.
Because of this, hotel owners must be concerned not only with property damage to the structure itself, but with the loss of business associated with any property damage.
Claim Disputed, Delayed, or Denied by Your Commercial Insurer?
Besides extensive damage to the physical structure of your hotel or motel, a disaster such as a tornado or hurricane can also cause extensive water or mold damage to any number of rooms in a hotel or motel—severely limiting your ability to operate and run your business. Moreover, because mold or water damage may expose you to future liability in the event a guest suffers from such unrepaired damage, it is important for you to get the recovery you are entitled to under your policy now—so that you can properly repair or rebuild your property.
Following a valid claim, your commercial insurer may attempt to avoid payment by arguing:
- The physical damage to your property is not covered under the policy
- Your policy does not cover water or mold damage
- Your business does not meet certain operating standards
- Your policy does not cover reduced business operations or business interruption
These actions, and a number of other bad faith actions by the insurer, can prevent you from getting your hotel or motel up and running again after a disaster.
