Environmental Damage Claims For Business Operators

If you own and/or operate a business in Indiana, you are subject to a wide range of laws governed by the federal EPA, as well as the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM). Getting hit with a citation for violating regulations regarding soil, water or air quality contamination can mean a significant cost for cleanup and compliance measures. If you are like many business owners or operators, you may not know for certain whether your commercial insurance policy will cover the costs.

The Insurance Adjuster's Word Is Rarely Final

Insurance adjusters work for the insurance company, not you. That means your initial claim may very well be denied or greatly reduced. Every issue involved in your claim deserves a careful review that looks at the situation from your point of view. In many cases, policy coverage does extend to environmental costs. Call Nelson Law Group LLC, in Indianapolis, for experienced, aggressive help with your environmental insurance needs.
