What are common reasons for filing a business interruption claim?
Unexpected things can happen. That’s why many business owners have business interruption insurance. This type of insurance coverage provides compensation for businesses that are closed for an extended period of time. Some of the most common reasons why businesses file business interruption claims include:
- Natural disasters (floods, tornados, etc.)
- Government-mandated shutdowns (including closure of non-essential businesses during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic)
These are just some of the most common reasons why you may need to file a business interruption claim. There are many other reasons why. That’s why it’s important that you talk with a business interruption claim attorney who knows the law and understands what to do.
What do business interruption insurance claims cover?
Business interruption claims are designed to cover a wide range of business expenses, including:
- Loss of business income
- Electric or other utility bills
- Telephone bill
- Heating costs
- Payroll taxes
In order to accurately calculate your business interruption claim, most insurance companies add together three different expenses normally affected by an extended business closure:
- Continuing expenses
- Net income
- Additional extra expenses
Added together, these three figures are commonly referred to as a “business interruption loss.” Insurance companies carefully calculate this figure but there can often be dramatic differences between the business interruption loss figure calculated by an insurance company and the amount you believe your business rightfully deserves. Our law firm can help you set the record straight and demand the money you rightfully deserve.
Reasons why business interruption insurance claims are denied
There’s often a lot of money at stake when it comes to business interruption insurance claims. That’s why it’s common to encounter obstacles to obtaining the money you rightfully deserve. Some of the reasons why insurance companies deny business interruption insurance claims include:
- The insurance company disputes the reason why your business is closed.
- The insurance company claims your business is closed for another, unrelated, reason.
- The insurance company disagrees on the amount of money you are entitled to for your business interruption loss.
Many business interruption claims have been denied during the recent Coronavirus (COVID 19) pandemic. As a result, the U.S. Congress is considering creating a compensation fund specifically for businesses forced to shut down due to stay-at-home orders whose business interruption claims have been denied.
