Tom Henderson Named Co-Chair of the CTLA Business Interruption Task Force
Burg Simpson shareholder Thomas W. Henderson, a member of the firm’s commercial litigation department, was just named co-chair of the Colorado Trial Lawyer Association’s newly formed Business Interruption Task Force. The Colorado Trial Lawyers Association (CTLA) formed the Business Interruption Insurance Task Force because these types of insurance claims are going to be different than what most CTLA members have encountered in the past. Most of these business policies are not cookie-cutter, so they must each be separately analyzed to determine what coverage there is for lost business income during the pandemic. Unfortunately, yet predictably, the insurance industry has been busy denying every business income interruption claim that has been submitted. The members of this newly formed task force will be developing strategies for pursuing getting the insurance industry to pay the benefits owed for these claims.
Burg Simpson shareholder Thomas W. Henderson is the Chair of the Bad-Faith Insurance division of the firm’s Commercial Litigation Department. He focuses his legal practice on representing policyholders in suing insurance companies for bad faith and getting insurance companies to pay what the insurance policy promises to pay. Mr. Henderson spent the first twenty years of his practice representing the insurance companies, answering their questions about whether the policy provided coverage for various claims, and even defending them when they were sued.Mr. Henderson uses his unusual background to his clients’ advantage because he knows where the weak spots are, where the smoking guns are hidden and how best to structure his clients’ cases to maximize the potential of getting the insurance companies to pay. Tom represents both individual consumers and businesses in their pursuit of insurance claims. For consumers, this includes auto, uninsured and underinsured motorists, homeowners, renters, liability, property, health, disability, and life insurance claims. For businesses, this includes auto, liability, property, lost profits, directors and officers, professional liability, and construction insurance claims. These claims can range from a few thousand dollars to millions of dollars.
