Avoiding business interruption losses on campus

flood-smWhile the majority of discussions concerning coverage following Hurricane Sandy have focused on homeowners and commercial businesses affected by the disaster, institutions such as colleges and universities have their own unique concerns and struggles to cope with after a storm. These losses remind us of the need to review and carefully draft policies to guard against future catastrophes, primarily in the case of business interruption losses and other nuances specific to higher education institutions.

Without a doubt, business income losses are very difficult to face and require time to adjust. For those in the higher ed field, the challenges may prove to be even more complicated. The smallest adjustment to a policy can sometimes be the difference between protecting revenue or facing a major loss. I encourage anyone in risk management at a higher education facility to check out our latest White Paper to learn more on seven business interruption coverage enhancements that help institutions prepare for future losses and aid in disaster response planning.

The WGA claims team is also hosting a webcast next week focused on the complicated process of proving a sustained business interruption loss. Click here for more information on this upcoming event.
