Business Interruption Insurance-The Coverage No Company Can Afford To Be Without

According to a recent report from the National Center for The Middle Market, 21% of Middle Market businesses have experienced a business interruption loss as the result of damage to their facilities and of this number, only 77% completely recover from this loss.  Every company’s worst nightmare is a disaster striking, causing significant damage to its infrastructure and a shutdown of operations. The damage to buildings and contents are just the tips of the icebergs. The resulting loss of business income and continuing expenses that continue during the rebuilding can be far greater than the cost to repair the damage. Business Interruption insurance can be the difference between being able to focus on strategically planning the company’s next steps while rebuilding or having to permanently close the doors.  With that said, simply having Business Interruption coverage may not provide the coverage you need following a loss, therefore, it is important to make sure you have the appropriate language and limits in place prior to a loss.
