Learn if the tide is changing with this type of insurance claim.
When the shutdowns and safer-at-home/stay-at-home orders were implemented in Spring of 2020, companies across the United States submitted claims to their insurance companies for lost revenue. These claims were usually submitted under the business income provisions of the business’s property insurance policies. Unfortunately for the businesses that filed these claims the insurers were denying most of them which led to many lawsuits requesting courts to push insurers to honor their contracts. This white paper reviews how litigation regarding these claims began and how courts across the United States are ruling on these situations.
