Business Interruption Insurance Class Actions

Funding for your Business Interruption Insurance claims 

Many businesses throughout Australia hold insurance that likely provides cover for losses caused by business interruptions, including interruptions arising from human infectious or contagious disease and which may cover losses relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Contesting coverage denials against insurers can be complex, costly and time consuming, and in some jurisdictions, can expose you to adverse costs if the litigation is unsuccessful. 

Your policy may respond even if your broker or insurer has said that it doesn’t.  

Omni Bridgeway’s finance and expertise is assisting policyholders to recover their losses under their insurance policies. 

Omni Bridgeway is presently providing funding for two class actions for policyholder losses resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Both cases are being run by Gordon Legal with assistance from Berrill & Watson. Gordon Legal is a leading class action law firm and Berrill & Watson is a specialist insurance law firm.  



If your business is insured by members of the QBE insurance group, please visit our QBE BII page for further details about the class action and how you can join.
