COVID-19: High Court rules could change position on business interruption pay-outs

Published on: 15 September 2020

British Marine understands that this week the High Court ruled that some insurance companies should have made pay outs to businesses in relation to COVID-19. 

Previously, many insurers disputed the claims and argued that the wording of the policy meant that they were not obliged to pay, under business interruption insurance, for businesses which closed as a result of COVID-19. 

British Marine would advise its members to contact their insurer once again to discuss the terms of their policy and to visit our microsite for more information.
