Covid-19 & Insurance

A number of businesses had prudently taken out Business Interruption insurance cover as part of their annual insurance cover and in the present uncertain times had intended to use this money to provide payment to their staff during any closure period.

We understand that there are insurers who are refusing to honour “Business Interruption” cover for businesses who have been forced to close due to Covid-19.

In the first instance businesses should check the scope of their particular insurance cover and speak to their insurance company or broker.

We can also review your policy for you to see whether or not your insurance company is wrongfully denying your Business Interruption coverage.
