Why Do I Have A Hurricane Harvey Claim From Hoboken?

As businesses and insurers sort out the impacts of Hurricane Harvey, it will take time to assess the physical damage and resulting business interruption losses. Invariably, however, business interruption impacts from Harvey will not just be felt along the Texas Gulf Coast. Texas’ significant refining, chemical and petrochemical facilities supply critical products to businesses throughout the U.S. and abroad (and to each other). To the extent that those supplies are disrupted, businesses located far from the Lone Star State may choose to assert contingent business interruption (“CBI”) claims under their own first-party property policies.
