Just when your business and property can’t handle one more setback, you are left to deal with civil unrest. Recently, we’ve seen the riots occurring in America lead to looting, vandalism and the destruction of property. In fact, the Claims Journal states that “insured losses from riots reach catastrophic levels.”*
So, how is a business supposed to protect itself during this time? First, it’s important to review your insurance policy. The Insurance Information Institute claims that riots, vandalism, looting and fire are covered perils under most business owners and commercial insurance property policies.** Plus, the merchandise stolen by looters should also be covered. The III also claims that an estimated forty percent of small and mid-sized businesses will be protected by their interruption coverage.
