Commercial Insurance Claims

Commercial property insurance claims are complex and often involve matters unrelated to homeowner claims. Property damage to business establishments can be severe, costly, and often require lengthy repairs with the schedules of numerous licensed professionals and municipal authorities. Many business owners also purchase an insurance policy with business interruption insurance to protect their finances and future operations.

Business Interruption Insurance Claims

Many business owners purchase an insurance policy with business interruption insurance. While property insurance policies generally provide coverage to repair damage, business interruption insurance policies can cover lost income and profits. Insurance policies with business interruption coverage generally provide payment to recover things like net income that would have been earned, lost profits, normal operating expenses, and various extra expenses. To be clear, business interruption policies like all are subject to conditions, limits, and various exclusions. It’s important to carefully review the terms of your business interruption coverage. All businesses should do routine insurance audits and seek to procure proper business interruption coverage.
