Business Interrupted: COVID-19 Insurance Coverage Issues 2020

Product ID: CA3065R4
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

Falling profits, rising claims

As the spreading coronavirus forces businesses to restrict their brick-and-mortar operations, the steep losses in revenue have left them looking for a lifeline.

In Business Interrupted: COVID-19 Insurance Coverage Issues, you will review common clauses and concepts in business continuation policies. Then you’ll examine the ways insurers appear to be interpreting the policy language as it relates to the coronavirus pandemic. Is coronavirus a viral or bacterial pollutant? A contaminant? How does a government order to close impact coverage?
