Liability Insurance protects the Named Insured who may be held legally liable for the bodily injury or property damage of others. If someone slips and falls caused by spilled water the host of the event failed to clean-up, the injured party could sue them for their negligence or failure to act. Serious injury claim settlements can be in the millions of dollars. Should there be a court settlement against you higher than the liability limit on your policy, the court judgment could then be applied against you and your personal or business assets. For this reason, it is imperative that the host of events undertake careful operations and ensure the safety of all attendees.
The Named Insured is the person or incorporated company that is renting the venue for an event. The name that is on your use permit or access rental agreement must match the Named Insured. The building owner, the City, or the University are NOT the named insured. If your association, group, club or team is not legally incorporated, you must name an individual person.Additional Insured are people, other than the Named Insured, who are protected by the terms of your policy, typically the building owner and management.
