Damage to my Business from Riots – What should I do?

Updated: Mar 28, 2023

Business owners today are faced with several significant risks to the profitability and normal operation of their storefronts. Widespread closures continue to plague the businesses of the United States, and the stress of the pandemic combined with recent violence by police against civilians has resulted in civil unrest throughout the country. There have been riots and looting in many cities, including some locations here in South Florida. As a business owner, what can you do in the event your business suffers damage at the hands of rioters or looters?

First and foremost, you should take steps to re-secure your storefront from any unauthorized access by potential looters or rioters. Be sure to take photographs of the damage before moving or altering any debris in order to properly document the condition of your property after the incident. Only after you have taken photographs of all damage sustained to your property should you make any necessary repairs to secure the structure. If you do not own the physical structure in which your business resides, you should contact your landlord and work with them to complete necessary structural repairs to the storefront.

When it comes to lost or damaged merchandise as a result of looting, you should prepare a detailed inventory of these losses as well as an accounting report as to their replacement value. A Public Adjuster can help you prepare the proper documentation to support your insurance claim, ensuring you receive the full amount of benefits owed to you so you can get back to business as quickly and painlessly as possible. At People’s Insurance Claim Center, we understand you want to focus on getting back to business.
