Art Theft and Loss

Property Damage Claim Attorney in Florida

It is important to protect your art against damage or theft. If you have even a piece or two of art you treasure, it is very important to consider adequate insurance. Don’t assume because you have insurance on your home or business that your artwork is protected in the event of the loss. Many policies have limitations or exclusions, so it is crucial that you discuss artwork coverage with an attorney.

Stolen, damaged, or destroyed art is cause for an insurance claim. If the art has been damaged, a qualified fine art conservator can assess the condition of the piece. The artist, condition, and rarity of the piece, and more, contribute to the overall value of a piece of art. Art can increase in value or depreciate, so it is important to keep your insurance provider aware of any changes or updates.

Important Tips

  • If your art has been stolen, contact one of several art loss databases such as the Art Loss Register, Interpol, and the National Stolen Art File, which is run by the FBI.
  • Some insurance companies offer a buy-back provision, which means if an artwork is stolen and later recovered, this gives the original owner the opportunity to regain title. This is especially important if the work of art has gone up in value since the time of the theft. For example, if a painting was stolen when it was worth $100,000 and at the time of recovery it was worth $200,000, the original owner could pay back the insurance company the $100,000 and retrieve their property now worth $200,000.
  • Ensure you have insurance on your artwork after purchase but during transit. Many losses happen before you even get to display your art.
  • If you suffer a loss, make sure you know if the insurance company is properly indemnifying you.
