What is a Large Loss?
What is a large loss? This is a question we get asked often, and in this blog, we share our definition. As a team, the large loss attorneys of McClenny Moseley, & Associates (MMA) have helped thousands of commercial property owners and business owners get the coverage they deserve post large loss.
When disaster strikes, property owners are not ready to assess all of the damage alone. Navigating the whirlwind that is post-loss after a disaster has struck is a full-time job, and this is where a large loss attorney can help. Depending on the extent of the damage, you may find yourself with a large loss claim on your hands. But like many others, you may be thinking, “what is a large loss?”
When there is a large or significant amount of property damage experienced by the tragic effects of storms related issues or significant structural damage, there can be a case for a large loss if the damage is extensive.
“A large loss is more of a function of the size of your business and what you think is large. Everyone is different,” said Attorney and Founding Partner .
While Director of Marketing, Pate Smith, says “a residential loss at $300k or any loss at seven figures is a large loss.”

Insurance Companies and Large Loss
While navigating your potential large loss case, it’s essential to have the right people on your side. Your insurance company should protect you as the policyholder, but that is not always the case. When working with the large loss team of attorneys at MMA, you have the confidence to know that the process of recovery is managed with excellent care. We suggest you review your policy in full as you renew each year. This will allow you to be ahead of the game when it comes to coverage, great for pre-damage situations. We also suggest signing a managed service agreement with MMA to have extra eyes looking out for you and your commercial property year-round to help assess your damage post-loss and help mitigate your losses.
