Several Queensland businesses have appointed LMI Group to quantify their business interruption claims against the ship that recently caused the major oil spill north of Brisbane.

The purely economic losses are not covered by traditional business interruption insurance as there has been no damage to insured property. As such, a claim against the ship’s insurers is the only option.

LMI Group’s Claims Services division, Loss Management International, is well staffed to carry out this important calculation to the level required by the courts.
