PHILADELPHIA – May 27, 2020 — The law firms of Feldman Shepherd Wohlgelernter Tanner Weinstock Dodig LLP and Francis Mailman Soumilas filed a class action lawsuit against Certain Underwriters at Lloyd’s, London (“Lloyd’s”) for the insurer’s refusal to pay for loss of business income arising from the COVID-19 pandemic and Pennsylvania’s civil shutdown orders.
The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the
Eastern District of Pennsylvania on behalf of Independence Restaurant Group
(IRG), which owns and operates Independence Beer Garden in Philadelphia. IRG submitted
to Lloyd’s an insurance claim for loss of business income and related losses
under its “All Risk” policy, which, after more than 30 days, Lloyd’s did not
cover and had communicated its intent to deny.
Through the lawsuit, IRG seeks to represent class members
throughout Pennsylvania who own and/or operate businesses insured with Lloyd’s
policies similar to its own. The lawsuit seeks a Declaratory Judgment to affirm
that Lloyd’s policies provide coverage to the plaintiff and the class members
for any current and future business personal property losses, loss of business
income, and extended special business income losses as a result of the COVID-19
pandemic and/or related Civil Authority orders affecting the operation of their
businesses due to physical loss or damage caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
