Thanks for your advice. I figured I had them based on that just did not know the legal lingo. And since these projects usually cannot be broken up they will try to get away with just paying part of it stating that because of damage to my office that is why we lost the contracts. But my argument is we lost it starting with the power loss for a week, after that it really does not matter. Once its pulled, its pulled.
They said they are sending me a letter explaining the denial for the two projects and I should wait to get the letter before responding. I know they are going to say that they believe because of damage to my office this is why the two projects ended but the first reason was the power loss, with out power we could not do anything and it was down for a week.
I am not sure how to prepare the letter though. I really don't want to go to court because usually these clients don't want to get involved if it becomes a big problem. They did send me letters at first about pulling the projects. Maybe I can get them to send me some more letters explaining about the power loss part and that would help the insurance to change their stance.
