Claim Example for Clothing Stores
Property: A fire began at the insured’s premises. The fire was a result of a careless
employee smoking a cigarette in the inventory room. The fire caused both $45,000
in building damage and $14,000 in business personal property damage. In order to
repair the damage, the store had to shut down for a month, causing a $18,000 loss
in income and $12,000 extra expenses, which was included in the business income
with extra expense coverage.
General Liability: A customer of the clothing store went to use the restroom, which had recently been cleaned by an employee. The tile floor area just outside of the restroom was still wet. The customer slipped and fell, breaking their arm. A $5,000 medical expense was immediately paid to compensate the customer for their hospital visit and the ambulance ride.
Value Plus: An employee of the store was going through tough financial times. They ‘forgot’ to turn on the alarm system when closing up for the night. No signs of break-in were evident. The store owner noticed inventory levels were repeatedly lower when this employee closed the store. Cash in the register also was mysteriously low on these same nights. The insured notified the police, and also made an employee dishonesty claim, and a money and securities claim.
Equipment Breakdown: The piping within the hot water heater ruptured from over usage, causing the clothing store to have to shut down for 4 hours. An equipment breakdown claim was made.
