New Regulation Seeks to Help New York Businesses Pursue Looting Insurance Claims

New Regulation Seeks to Help New York Businesses Pursue Looting Insurance Claims

Author: Ajoe P. AbrahamDate: August 23, 2021

For New York businesses that were looted, vandalized, or otherwise damaged, the good news is that business insurance policies generally cover property damage caused by such incidents. So while many companies have faced an uphill battle in filing business interruption claims related to the COVID-19 crisis, these claims should be more clear-cut.
