Riot Compensation for Businesses

Many businesses and indeed anyone who has suffered loss as a result of the recent riots may find that they are not insured. Most insurance policies exclude losses caused by riots. But there is a possible source of compensation, if only for damage to buildings. The Riot (Damages) Act 1886 covers loss to buildings and allows claims against the Police provided they are submitted within 14 days. It has been reported that the Prime Minister David Cameron has stated that this will be increased to 42 days. Many insurers will pursue these claims on behalf of their insured, but anyone wishing to claim must do so quicky. A useful article appeared in the Publican's Morning Advertiser, the trade press for pubs bars hotels and other licensed premises, with a link to a compensation form.

If not, a claim should be submitted to the Police Authority as a matter of urgency. Nigel Musgrove Business Solicitor 01285 847001
