If your business was forced to close as a result of the government’s response to the global COVID-19 pandemic and your insurer has rejected your business interruption insurance claim, you may still have a claim against your insurer.
The COVID-19 pandemic impacted thousands of Australian businesses, many of whom were forced to cease their operations causing significant financial and emotional strain.
Despite these businesses holding business interruption insurance, many insurers are leading their customers to believe their policy excludes cover for losses suffered as a result of Coronavirus / COVID-19, on the basis that Coronavirus / COVID-19 is a “quarantinable disease” under the “Quarantine Act 1908” and is therefore excluded under the policy. Learn more about the Quarantine Act 1908 below.
If you have faced this situation with your insurance, you are encouraged to seek legal advice.
