California Business Interruption Insurance
Business interruption insurance protects a business owner when disaster strikes.
While a fire insurance policy covers damage to a property after a fire, business interruption insurance compensates for lost income when a business must close down completely because of disaster-related damage. It also covers operating expenses, such as electricity, that must continue to be paid after the catastrophe.
Business interruption insurance offers protection when you need it most — when your business is temporarily unusable and has no way to generate income or profits.
A Question of Survival – Why You Need Business Interruption Insurance
A business interruption insurance claims denial can be as devastating as the catastrophe that closed your business. With the insurance coverage you’ve paid for, you can rebuild your business; without it, few businesses can survive.
Insurance companies have been known to take advantage of vulnerable policyholders and force them into bankruptcy. A common ploy to prevent paying a fire-related claim, for example, is for the insurer to charge the policyholder with arson without ever investigating the circumstances of the fire. Insurance companies may use inappropriate methods of calculating losses, in an attempt to minimize and/or delay payment of claims.
