White Paper: Commercial Property Insurance Claims in Response to COVID-19

The COVID-19 Pandemic Recovery Task Force has been tackling many important issues since its formation a couple months ago.  The Task Force developed a whitepaper titled “Commercial Property Insurance Claims in Response to COVID-19.”  This whitepaper provides an overview of business interruption insurance coverage in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.  It covers the common characteristics of standard business interruption coverage included in commercial property insurance policies, identifies the possible limitations, and discusses the litigation and legislation that has arisen in response to the pandemic.  It also includes practical recommendations for business owners and non-profits who are considering making a claim under their property insurance policy.  It was authored by Christopher R. Thompson, Esq., Burr & Forman, LLP, with assistance from Prof. Stephen K. Halpert, Professor of Law, University of Miami School of Law, and others on the Task Force.  You can read or download the whitepaper by clicking here.
