La situation de quasi arrêt de toute activité non strictement indispensable, décidée par les autorités, occasionne des pertes considérables pour de très nombreuses entreprises. Certaines polices d’assurance couvrent la perte d’exploitation résultant d’une décision de fermeture administrative. Le tribunal de commerce de Paris a condamné en référé un assureur à indemniser un restaurateur. Mais le débat juridique n’est pas clos, car l’assureur fait appel. Dans tous les cas où la police d’assurance ne couvrirait pas le risque, on peut s’interroger sur la mise en jeu de la responsabilité civile professionnelle du courtier. En effet, celui-ci est tenu d’un devoir de conseil au bénéfice de son client l’assuré et aurait peut-être dû lui proposer la couverture du risque. Par Jean-Christophe Bouchard, Avocat à la Cour, NMW.
