Tred R. Eyerly - Insurance Law Hawaii

The federal district court found there were multiple occurrences of property damage under a disease contamination provision in the policy. Dental Express, LLC v. Massachusetts Bay Ins. Co., 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 119701 (N.D. Ill. July 7, 2022).

Dental Express operated seventy-three dental offices across nine states and the District of Columbia. All of the practices were covered by a policy issued by Massachusetts Bay. When the pandemic struck, state and local authorities nationwide issued executive orders suspending the operations of nonessential businesses. Dental Express suspended its operations to comply with these orders and consequently lost business income. It filed claims with Massachusetts Bay.
