The Shake Rattle & Roll Of Earthquake Insurance

earthquake1-bf6The potential cost of earthquakes has been growing because of increasing urban development in seismically active areas and the vulnerability of older buildings, which may not have been built or upgraded to current building codes.

Nearly all business owners buy fire insurance, but the likelihood of suffering significant damage by earthquake is far greater than fire. Policies can include losses from mud slides and sink holes if the earthquake was the original event.

Earthquake Insurance deductibles are a percentage of the policy’s limit. So if, for example, your policy has a $100,000 limit and the deductible is 20 percent, you must pay $20,000 out of pocket before your benefits kick in.
