Violent Acts Coverage Scenarios:
- A server employed at your bar has recently separated from her husband. The estranged husband enters your bar with a weapon, resulting in serious injuries among your employees and customers. Police and emergency personnel respond. Your business operations are suspended.
- An employee at your restaurant finds a bomb threat written on the bathroom wall. You immediately evacuate the restaurant. Your business operations are suspended.
In these situations, there may not be a direct physical loss to your covered property but your business is still forced to close. This is why violent acts coverage is so important. While you may be dealing with other potential issues like death, injury and emotional trauma, violent acts coverage will provide for loss of business income and extra expenses incurred.
Violent acts coverage is automatically included in Society’s standard businessowners policies. And don’t forget: Unlike other insurance providers in which coverage may not start until after a 72-hour waiting period, Society Insurance coverage begins immediately upon suspension of business operations and will apply for up to three consecutive weeks.
