KMRD Are You Ready for One Minute From Normal?

Business Interruption Insurance and Sandy

For many businesses, Hurricane Sandy was an unpleasant reminder of how quickly One Minute From Normal can arrive. Employees were unable to show up for work, inventory shipments were delayed, supply chains were broken and work had to be rescheduled. Some companies experienced a complete cessation of business activity.

These business interruptions have been a formidable challenge to companies already under duress from the fragile economic recovery. With Working Capital and Retained Resources either nonexistent or at historically low levels, some companies will not be able to survive the revenue interruption even as normal and extraordinary costs mount.

Business Interruption Insurance covers revenue that has been lost in the wake of a disaster like Hurricane Sandy, while also covering the unique and necessary costs a business assumes to get back in business. It can be added to a business property insurance policy, which, of course, covers physical damage to the business. With business interruption coverage properly written, the carrier will support a business financially as if the event had not occurred.
