BRG’s Business Insurance Claims (BIC) team assists policyholders and works with their insurance brokers and insurance coverage counsel to prepare insurance claims resulting from the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Our professionals provide comprehensive forensic accounting and insurance claim preparation services and have assisted clients with hundreds of property and business interruption claims totaling billions of dollars. They prepare credible, professional, and well-documented insurance claims, per the terms of the insurance policies, that help lead to timely settlements.

Virus/Disease Claims Experience

BRG professionals are currently preparing claims for companies that have suffered financial losses related to the coronavirus (COVID-19), including losses due to event cancellations, business closures, local and state government orders (civil authority), supply chain disruptions, and mitigation of property damage, and protection of employees’ health and safety. BRG professionals also have experience preparing virus/disease claims associated with the Zika virus, H1N1/swine flu, SARS, and Legionnaires’ disease.

Our deep claims and industry experience enables us to provide strategic advice and manage expectations throughout the claims process, and our fees are typically covered by the insurance policy. While our professionals establish loss-accounting procedures, analyze detailed financial and accounting records, and develop financial models to prepare the claims, our clients’ management can focus on caring for employees, serving customers, and maintaining and rebuilding the businesses. In cases that are not settled, our claim professionals have served as consulting and testifying experts in litigation. 

We understand and have analyzed the financial impacts that typically arise as a result of viruses/diseases and related losses.
