What insurance coverages do event policies come with?


Event policies mostly offer liability protections, although property coverages might be available too. Liability coverages generally insure against situations where the insured could be sued for causing someone else harm, whether that be injury, illness, or damage to their property. There are a variety of liability coverages that could be important to have:

  • General Liability Coverage: Could cover basic accidents occurring during an event, and also during pre-event setup and post-event takedown. Basic accidents may include slipping on ice, tripping on a cord, falling off of a stage, and similar incidents.
  • Product Liability Coverage: Could cover injuries or property damage caused by products that are distributed or sold at the event. Covered products could be sold goods, foods, drinks, prizes, and free swag.
  • Spectator Liability Coverage: Could cover injuries that attendees suffer while watching activities at the event. May be needed if hosting athletic competitions, performances, live concerts, or similar activities.
  • Automobile Liability Coverage: Could cover the use of vehicles at the event, which could include using shuttles, buses, delivery vans, security vehicles, trucks, or another type of vehicle.
  • Liquor Liability Coverage: Could cover incidents involving at least one intoxicated guest. Covered incidents may include basic accidents, fights, sexual assaults, and alcohol poisoning.
  • Medical Malpractice Coverage: Could cover errors made by medical staff hired for the event, which could be EMTs, paramedics, nurses, or physicians.

Other, more specialized, coverages might be needed for certain activities. For example, additional protections could be required if an event includes an air show or live animals. In these sorts of situations, a knowledgeable insurance agent can check what coverages are available through different policies.
