Check your insurance policy

Dear Editor:

As a part-time resident in Aspen for many years, I was saddened that the New Year’s celebration for so many was ruined by the deranged actions of one individual. I know it is a particularly painful close to an already challenging year for many of the restaurants and hotels in the evacuated area.

Please remind the affected business owners to check their insurance policies and consult with their agents or brokers to see if there is coverage for losses relating to the mandatory evacuation. The business-interruption portion of property policies may contain a provision providing coverage in the event access to the business has been prevented. Obviously, the existence of coverage will depend upon the specifics of the policy and its exclusions, but it is something that should be reviewed promptly.
