Storm of the Decade Results in Flooding, Roof Collapses and Business Interruption
A powerful storm is currently slamming into Northern California, bringing with it high winds, drenching rains, and heavy wet snow. This storm has restricted travel and closed roads, leading to a temporary disruption in the operation of many area businesses. In addition, this sheer amount of water and snow has the potential to cause buildings to suffer interior water damage from flood waters and for roofs to collapse from the weight of the snow. As large commercial buildings often have flat roofs, they are more susceptible to collapse, thereby increasing their chances of suffering additional damage after the storm has passed.
It is your responsibility as the policyholder to make sure that the insurance company has all the information and evidence to support the extent of the damage to your business. Does your business have the staff and experience to know everything you are covered for, and how to claim it? Depending on the terms of your insurance policy, you may be eligible to file a claim under some or all of the following coverage provisions:
- Property Damage (Buildings, contents, etc.);
- Business Interruption and Extra Expense, directly resulting from the property damage; and
- Business Interruption, caused by property damage at customers’ and/or suppliers’ locations.
