How to claim business interruption insurance?

On 15 January 2021, the UK Supreme Court delivered its judgment on the Financial Conduct Authority Business Interruption test case against several insurance companies. The impact of the judgment in favour of businesses is far-reaching. It potentially allows businesses to have their business interruption claims reconsidered, or it may allow for a new claim to be submitted for consideration by their insurer.

The key policy clauses considered were:

  • Disease clauses
  • Prevention of Access
  • Local Authority or Government closure

Whether or not you are likely to bring a successful claim for business interruption depends on the type of policy you have, which is why we recommend contacting us as soon as possible. Our specialist team supports businesses in obtaining the maximum amount of compensation they are entitled to. We will check the terms and conditions of your policy to see if you are covered.
