What is Business Interruption Insurance?
Business interruption insurance offers financial protection to companies that have suffered a loss of income/earnings as a result of a disaster. If a Florida company is unable to operate or if it can only operate at a limited capacity, its business interruption policy can be used to cover its expenses and lost profits. The standard formula for determining the value of this type of insurance claim is:
- Operating costs + net profits + approved add-on costs = total value of the claim.
To be clear, business interruption policies are subject to limits and exclusions. Unfortunately, the big insurance companies are primarily interested in protecting their own bottom line—and they are not always willing to pay out the full value of claims. Our Florida insurance lawyers are here to protect your rights and help your company get the financial support it is owed.
Business Interruption Insurance and COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
If you are a Florida business owner and your company suffered losses due to the coronavirus or the subsequent government shutdowns, it is imperative that you carefully review the terms of your business interruption policy. You may have a path to recover financial support for some (or all) of your losses.
It is crucial that you are ready for the challenges you may face in the claims process. In some cases, business interruption coverage requires physical damage to the premises in order for coverage to apply. There are questions about if/when coronavirus exposure will qualify as physical damage. Additionally, some business interruption policies strictly exclude coverage for virus-related losses. If you have any questions about your policy, our Florida business interruption attorneys can help.
