Throwing a party in your office or at your home or maybe you are renting a venue? Well, you’re going to need one day special event insurance.
WHAT IS EVENT INSURANCE?
Short term event insurance protects you from lawsuits caused by damage to the location you are renting or lawsuits that arise if your guests are injured. Your rented venue is likely going to ask for evidence of one day liability event insurance so the venue owners are not drawn into your lawsuit.
What would I need one day event insurance for?
- If you are hosting a Canada Day party in a municipal park, or on a municipal beach or on crown land you may need a permit that requires you to show evidence of one day event liability. Often the permit will specify the short term venue liability amount required.
- Your guests may accidentally damage the cabana or barbecue shelter you have rented. Does the owner require you to provide evidence of short term venue liability insurance? It is suggested that you check your rental contract.
- Are you hosting the holiday party around Christmas at your house? Check with your homeowners broker to see if you are covered. Parties over a certain size are most likely not covered especially if you serve alcohol.
- Have you rented furniture or the sound system or a marquee for your annual summer bash? Are you responsible to insure the equipment you have rented? Take time to read the fine print in those rental contracts.
- Hosting a company party during the holidays is a great time to bond with coworkers. Parties are fun until your staff are injured. What if your employee is forced to sue your company? Will your business office insurance cover a holiday party? Holiday party liability insurance will cover you if you are sued by providing a free lawyer to defend you and paying the judgement costs awarded to your injured guest.
- If you are serving alcohol, try to hire a caterer to serve the drinks or purchase one day liquor liability insurance.
- What happens if your marquee blows away and injures other people in the park? Lawsuits from a cartwheeling marquee would be covered with day insurance.
