Houston Personal Injury Lawyer Defends Against Insurance Companies

Law Firm of Jim Walker Assists With Business Interruption Claims

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - February 27, 2009) - Houston personal injury lawyer Jim Walker has represented Houston and Gulf Coast area companies who have unresolved business interruption insurance claims.

Most corporations purchase business interruption insurance to provide coverage in the event a disaster strikes and they cannot operate in standard fashion. The policy can compensate for lost income if the premises need to be vacated, such as in the case of a fire or hurricane. Business interruption covers operating expenses, like electricity and profits the company would have earned, prior to the halt of business due to the disaster.

The Houston personal injury lawyers at Walker & Crawford have represented many businesses and corporations whose business interruption claims have been denied, delayed, or not paid in full due to disasters including Hurricane Ike.

"We have represented clients who have struggled to receive timely service and payments from insurance companies despite having comprehensive business interruption policies," said Walker. "Our goal is to protect the rights of these business owners when they are faced with recovering from a disaster."

Business interruption coverage should cover reconstruction costs and income lost while a business recovers from a disaster. When Hurricane Ike hit the Texas Gulf Coast, many businesses were faced with intensive damages and loss of property. Many insurance companies rejected or denied business interruption claims on technicalities in their policies.

Whether the disaster is a fire or the devastating impact of Hurricane Ike last September, businesses and corporations rely on their insurance company responding in a prompt and efficient manner. Walker and his associates have the expertise to assist in filing claims following a disaster and taking legal action in the event the business interruption insurance policy is not upheld.
