The spread and consequences of the COVID-19, otherwise known as the coronavirus, has businesses big and small on tenterhooks. With a nationwide quarantine in full effect, streets will be barren, shops closed, and business owners at home the economy will be dealt a devastating blow as revenue, profits, and stock are expected to crumble. Considering this very real scenario, how are independent workers and businesses expected to survive quarantine and still be expected to cover overheads such as wages and taxes? In Florida, businesses and the general population are no strangers to taking time off the streets as hurricanes have halted commercial activity in the past. However, with the uncertainty of how long business will be interrupted because of the coronavirus quarantine, financial losses will spread across every business area to include suppliers, distributors, manufacturers, merchants, and many more public and private sector workers. Though business and corporate employees will still receive their paychecks, business owners may not be able to cope with long-term economic losses from business disruptions. Liquidity issues and financial impacts will undoubtedly be felt by business as a result of the coronavirus and its impact on daily life. With business interruptions come concerns for the insured and insurance providers regarding availability, scope, coverage limits, occurrences, deductibles and retention to help businesses cope with the effects of COVID-19. Business owners and operators unfamiliar with Business Interruption Coverage
and how it helps protect the insured party need to know a few basics that shed a ray of light onto its complex workings.
The Perazzo Law Firm serves Business Interruption Coverage holders when presenting an insurance claim for losses stemming from business suspension caused by the cease of business activity.
The Perazzo Law Firm explains First-Party Insurance in layman’s terms:
If your business is forced to shut down or cease commercial activity which greatly affects its ability to cover overheads such as utilities, wages, etc. over an extended of time, you will most certainly suffer financial losses which can impact you and your workers. Without revenue, businesses are unable to pay employees and cover basic overheads. This can lead to your business going bankrupt or fall into an endless pit of debt. If this happens as a result of an extended shutdown, which is highly likely amid the very real threat of the coronavirus, you may be eligible for compensation through a business interruption claim. A basic BI policy is described like this:
“We will receive compensation for the real loss of business income sustained due to the necessary interruption of your ‘operations’ during the period of ‘restoration.’ The interruption must be caused by or result from a covered cause of loss.”
What does Business Interruption Insurance Do for Business Owners?
In Miami, business owners big, medium and small will suffer losses from the coronavirus shutdown. Fortunately, business interruption insurance helps policy holders receive compensation for revenue losses stemming from an inevitable interruption in their commercial activity. Thus, the income the business would have earned during normal operation, as shown on official accounting records, is covered by the business owner’s First Party Insurance policy.
What do business owners need to do to file a First Party Insurance Claim?
In Miami, a First Party Insurance claim may be filed by the business owner. However, insurance providers are not desperate to provide compensation since insurance providers are in the business of receiving money not giving it to policy holders. In other words, insurance companies do not take joy in paying out and you will most likely receive a rejection letter. That said, business owners are very highly recommended to hire an experienced insurance claims attorney to fight for the compensation they deserve for losses stemming from business interruptions.
Business owners seeking to file an insurance claim for business interruption will need the following:
- A copy of the Business Interruption or First Party Insurance policy
- Financial reports to back-up the insurance claim for the amount requested
- A trusted insurance claims lawyer to handle the claim and fight for just compensation

In the event of business interruptions, the lifeline of the business may not be long, and it is important to act quickly and not hesitate. In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm understands the importance addressing a First Party Insurance claim quickly and effectively by promptly preparing a legal plan to enhance the chances of a successful insurance claim for compensation to make sure your losses and any damages are covered and your business survives a shutdown.
