Sports Championships, Riots and How They Relate To Insurance
Congratulations to the San Francisco Giants who beat the Texas Rangers to win the World Series this week. It was the franchises first championship since 1954 and their first since moving to San Francisco from New York after the 1957 season. You think the fans were happy? Like many other professional sports championship victories, passionate “fans” often congregate and begin to riot in celebration.
Luckily, riots don’t happen often but rest assured if they do, it is a covered peril on a property insurance policy (unless there is a specific exclusion attached to the policy form). So if your business gets stuck in the middle of excess celebration and your business property is damaged in a riot or civil commotion, you are covered under a standard property insurance form. Just make sure you carry the appropriate amount of insurance to cover your particular needs.
