Business Interruption Insurance
What is Covered by Business Interruption Insurance?
Business interruption insurance provides benefits to business owners who have suffered from losses due to a crisis. Most policies cover unpredictable events, often that are naturally-occurring. Business interruption insurance does not cover losses caused by an economic downturn, lack of sales, or similar circumstances.
Situations that may be covered by business interruption insurance include:
- Natural disasters
Many businesses have suffered losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic and are wondering if their business interruption insurance policy will cover their expenses. The answer to that question will depend on your specific policy and the details of your claim. Contact Springer & Steinberg, P.C. to discuss your case and learn if a business interruption insurance claim will help you at this time.
Business interruption insurance can help you with the normal operating costs of owning a business during a crisis, as well as any new expenses that have arisen due to the crisis. If your business has suffered financially because of a covered disaster, you can receive benefits through a business interruption insurance claim that will cover the resulting costs.
Business interruption insurance covers expenses such as:
- Property damage and loss — Natural disasters, fires, and other covered crises can result in the destruction or loss of buildings and merchandise. Business interruption insurance provides coverage for these damages.
- Lost income — If you have lost property or are unable to work due to a disaster, business interruption insurance can cover the income you lost as a result.
- Additional expenses — Business interruption insurance also accounts for additional expenses resulting from a crisis. This may include the cost of moving to another location or the financial impact of closing a business for a period of time.
Although you have a business interruption insurance policy, your claims may not be accepted. When business interruption insurance claims are denied, the most common reason given by insurers is that the cited crisis is not covered by the policy. This is true in some cases, but it’s possible that the insurance company is acting dishonestly to avoid paying your claim. Our Denver business interruption insurance claim lawyers can examine your policy to determine what your rights are, and pursue compensation from the insurance company.
