Case Study

A hospitality company suffered a financial impact from an outbreak of the Zika virus in close proximity to their location.

There were difficult issues with the claim preparation including determination of the indemnity period – since there was no property damage, making it challenging to determine when the period ended.

JLT’s forensics team developed a solid financial foundation against which to measure the loss.

Using five years of actual to forecast comparisons, we were able to demonstrate a considerable financial impact upon the business.

Due to the broad coverage afforded under the terms of the policy, the company is now settling a multi-million dollar claim, which for this type of claim is fairly unique in the industry.

The forensic analysis we undertook in conjunction with the hospitality company was the foundation that established the basis of settlement, surpassing even the company’s expectations.
