Who Needs Sports, Arts, Entertainment, and Recreation Insurance?
General Liability Insurance covers your liability related to accidental damage of a client’s property, as well as bodily injury to clients on your property.
Example... A customer trips and falls on your commercial property, sustaining injury. General Liability covers their medical bills and your legal defence costs if they sue you.
Business Owners Policy (BOP) is popular among professionals working in the sports, arts and entertainment industry because it combines the features of General Liability and another policy, typically commercial property.
Example... A visitor at your entertainment venue trips and falls through a window, sustaining injury and damaging property. BOP covers their medical costs, your legal fees and repair or replacement costs.
Workers compensation insurance is needed when you have large crowds of people gathering in one place and your employees are injured on the job.
Example... During a fitness and cultural event for tourists, your employee pulls a back muscle. Workers compensation insurance covers her medical bills and lost work time.
Commercial Auto Insurance is needed by Sports and recreation organizations that own or rent vehicles for business purposes.
Example... On the way to an event, your employee collides with another motorist, damaging both cars and injuring the motorist. Commercial Auto Insurance covers their medical fees and the repair costs to both vehicles.
