What is Business Interruption Insurance?
Business interruption insurance protects a business from economic loss attributed to the business’s inability to operate in a normal manner. Policy language frequently varies by carrier, policy and the coverage negotiated. The ability to recover business losses is determined by the specific policy and the circumstances of the business’s loss of income. Because of the government mandated shutdowns with COVID-19, business owners are utilizing their business interruption policies to replace lost income, pay bills, payroll and more. Most insurance carriers are already attempting to rely on exclusions and other policy language to deny claims.
