Complex Business Interruption Made Easy

Business Interruption Claims

Business Interruption Insurance covers financial losses that are a direct consequence of a fire or flood. Business Interruption will assist with elements such as loss of profit, loss of rental and additional staff costs. Business interruption looks forwards not backwards so quite often a Business Interruption claim runs for several years as the financial loss to a business continues long after it reopens. You may also have other costs such as marketing and advertising that are needed to get customers back on board. These are all taken into account with Business Interruption.If you are looking to make a Commercial Business Interruption Insurance Claim, a good Loss Assessor will be able to help calculate this. Remember Loss assessors work for you and Loss adjusters represent the insurance company. Any claim where there is BI will usually need the assistance of an insurance claim management company or specialist.

When You Make A Claim

Justifying how your business would be performing had the claim had not occurred is extremely challenging. You have to show to Insurers the company’s performance historically, and other factors that could have influenced trading over the interrupted period. Markets are examined in your specific industry to see how it’s performing generally, as well as local factors such as increases or decreases in your market share due to competition. Preparing, collating and presenting these to Insurers to maximise your entitlement is a time consuming and tactical exercise requiring significant experience, vision, and imagination.
