Aaron Silverman – Tails & Trotters
My small, but not simple, retail business suffered a devastating fire in late February, 2017. After spending several months working with my insurance company to calculate my Business Interruption claim I was offered a paltry 35% of the loss by the insurance company’s accounting representation. The offer was made with no documentation by my insurance firm’s accountants, and all communications ceased when I challenged the offer.
Cogence was able to bring the insurance accountants back to the table to complete the calculations. They worked to understand the intricacies of my business, and were able to present my financial information in a manner that the accountants were better able to accept.
In the end, we were successful in convincing the insurance company to pay the full amount of the Business Interruption claim. Although it certainly would have been better had the insurance company & their accountant worked through the process in a more honest manner to avoid additional expense, Cogence’s work was instrumental in ultimately getting the claim funded in full – absolutely critical for my business to be able to survive the catastrophe.
Cogence was wonderful to work with, and I highly recommend them to anyone unfortunate enough to require their services!
