When fire or another casualty damages a commercial building, businesses may suffer financial hardship beyond lost income and costs to repair the property. In most situations, a prudent business owner is likely to incur expenses that fall outside the scope of those normally seen in the business's day-to-day operation. The nature of those expenses is as varied as the circumstances of each loss.
