If your business has been crippled by a government-mandated shutdown issued to slow the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), you are likely counting on your business interruption insurance to replace lost income, pay bills, and cover payroll. Unfortunately, however, many business owners are being told by insurance companies that their business interruption insurance policy doesn’t cover losses caused by a business slowdown or closure due to a pandemic, often relying on exclusions or other policy language.
What Is Business Interruption Insurance And What Is Covered?
Business interruption insurance, which is also commonly called business income insurance, replaces lost income and amounts paid for bills and payroll in the event of a disaster that forces the business to close or reduce operations. Policies traditionally cover, but are not limited to, the following:
- Profits lost which normally would have been earned
- Fixed costs, such as operating expenses
- Moving costs if the business is required to move to a temporary location
New Legislation & Lawsuit Filings Nationwide
Sadly, most insurance companies have not been paying coronavirus-related claims filed by business owners, even though their policies should provides coverage for this. To combat this, many states have begun introducing legislation requiring insurers to provide coverage to business owners for coronavirus-related claims. Further, business owners nationwide are filing lawsuits against their insurance companies for the wrongful denial of their claims.
