    Author: Chartered Institute of Loss Adjustors

    Published: April 2020

    Armed with a sound understanding of the fundamental principles of BI, such as this book provides, most BI claims can be settled to the satisfaction of all interested parties. The book also flags up those issues where additional research and experience may need to be brought to bear.

     

    Sources of additional analysis, such as Riley on Business Interruption Insurance and Business Interruption Policy Wordings – Challenges Highlighted by Claims Experience, provide in-depth coverage of the topic of BI. The latter concentrates on recurring issues surrounding policy wordings but it presupposes a detailed knowledge and experience of matters pertaining to BI. This book does not assume any prior BI knowledge – the reader is, however, expected to be familiar with the fundamental principles of insurance, particularly property coverage.
