Guelph Liquor Liability Insurance

Do you need Liquor Liability Insurance?

Owning a business that serves alcohol, whether in an established location or for a special event, always involves an element of risk. Liquor liability insurance protects you against loss or damages claimed as the result of a patron of your business becoming intoxicated and injuring themselves or others.

If your business manufactures, sells, serves, or facilitates the use or purchase of alcohol, then you need liquor liability insurance coverage.

Guelph Liquor Liability 101

There has always been a great deal of confusion about the need for liquor liability, even among insurance professionals. Liquor liability laws vary greatly by state, and insurance policy coverage options are often confusing. Here are the basics:

  • Party Alcohol Liability: provides protection when lawsuits are brought against individuals, organizations or companies who host single/multi-day functions with alcohol service and is designed for event hosts who are holding reception type events in a rented facility.
  • Liquor Legal Liability: provides coverage for bodily injury or property damage for which you may become legally liable as the result of contributing to a person's intoxication. This coverage is provided by a separate policy and will only cover establishments 'in the business of' manufacturing, selling, distributing, or serving alcoholic beverages for a charge. This exposure is not covered under a general liability policy.
