How are commercial claims different from residential claims?
At Velasquez & Associates, our firm is experienced in handling both commercial insurance and residential insurance claims. One of the most important differences between the two types of claims is simply the size of the claim. When dealing with commercial property such as hotels, shopping centers, factories and distribution centers, a claim for damaged or destroyed property is exponentially many times greater than the average residential property claim. These claims are often so high that the insurance company makes a business decision that it would rather litigate the claim than pay what it owes. Commercial insurance claims are therefore more likely to be denied or underpaid. Commercial property owners also often face unreasonable and interminable delays from the insurance company in processing their claim.
Another important distinction between residential and commercial claims is that a homeowner can generally find temporary living quarters without too much difficulty while a home is being repaired. The same cannot always be said for a commercial property, and finding temporary quarters is not always possible. As a business owner, you have responsibilities to your employees, your customers and shareholders, if applicable. You’ve got to meet payroll and stay in production to keep the business going, and also to generate cash flow and living expenses for the business owner. You can’t afford to have your claim denied or unreasonably delayed.
Time is of the essence in any property damage insurance claim, but in the case of many commercial insurance claims, getting a timely response is absolutely essential. At Velasquez & Associates, we’ll go to work right away to resolve your claim as efficiently and effectively as possible.
