Business interruption insurance is often seen as one of the most complex and misunderstood areas of our industry. However, with claims and litigation increasing apace, this is a topic that insurance professionals do need to grasp firmly, in order to deal with both placing cover correctly and assisting with claims - and thereby reduce professional indemnity exposures.
