A few weeks ago as this crisis began to take shape, we indicated it would be a good idea to dust off the old business interruption policies. In response to some queries, we wanted to add to our discussion.
Regardless of anyone’s (including your insurance broker) belief, you should still make the claim on the policy. There are a number of factors at play, including, but not definitively, some form of government intervention to cover these losses. It would be critical to get those claims on file as soon as possible.
Of course, counsel is always a good place to start. Please take care and stay safe and healthy.
