COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Updates

Does your insurance company cover Coronavirus coverage losses?

As the economy is disrupted and expected revenues are lost during the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses need to know whether they have insurance coverage and insurance companies need to know their possible exposures.

COVID-19 has disrupted events, supply chains, sales, and entire industries. As a result, businesses will likely look to their property insurers to recuperate lost business income, as well as expenses related to cleaning, sanitizing, and decontamination. This pandemic is likely to generate claims across several lines of business.

While the long-term effects of the pandemic are yet unknown, it is certain that new strategies will present unique challenges as businesses struggle to adapt to the new realities. Based on communications with some of our clients, I know that many law firms are already preparing detailed research on the issues confronting their clients.
