Filing business interruption insurance claims

Business interruption insurance is coverage designed to help companies when a disaster strikes. It’s defined as a form of insurance that covers lost income when your business temporarily closes due to a fire, natural disaster, or other covered incident. Covered disasters also typically include theft, fire, wind, falling objects or lightning.

Be sure to read your business insurance policy documents so you know which perils your insurer helps cover.

Business interruption insurance covers:

  • Lost income
  • Operating expenses
  • Sudden relocation
  • Payroll
  • Taxes
  • Loan payments

Insurance Companies Acting in Bad Faith

Having the coverage doesn’t mean an insurance company will act in good faith and honor the policy and pay a claim. Many will wait for legal action to respond to a filed claim.
