Liquor Liability

As a business owner, risk is inevitable. According to your Local Dram Shop Law, you could be held liable for accidents caused by individuals you served alcohol to. Especially if they are visibly intoxicated or a minor. You may be legally responsible to cover these claims. With bartender insurance, you can help manage that risk and mitigate or even eliminate the out-of-pocket costs of alcohol-related claims.

What Is Risk?

Risk is anything that can result in a claim or liability. They can come in any shape or size and are different for each business. Businesses that sell or furnish alcohol have a higher level of risk which can result in heftier and more expensive claims. Risks of an alcohol-related business could include an intoxicated customer causing an accident or fight.

Protect Against Risk

More often than not, risks can lead to claims. Don’t let the risks of running your alcohol service drain your financial resources. Insurance Canopy provides comprehensive liability insurance that can protect your business from the cost of claims. Common risks Bartender Insurance can protect you from include:

  • Accidents involving customers you served alcohol to
  • Customers getting injured as a result of your business operation
  • Property damage caused by your business or by an intoxicated customer
  • Fights or threats taking place between patrons

Claim Examples You Could Face

Here are two examples of claims you could face and their consequences if you were to operate your business without insurance. 

  • A patron was served three beers accompanied with three shots of whiskey by an untrained bartender over the course of three hours. He then stopped at an attached liquor store where he purchased a half-pint of whiskey. Upon leaving, the patron drove 500 feet before colliding head-on with a single passenger vehicle. Both drivers were seriously injured. The case settled for $200,000 with expense costs paid of $19,400.
  • A woman was served 11 or 12 alcoholic beverages by the bartender. After leaving the bar, she got into her vehicle and struck a 22-year-old student who died from her injuries. The student’s family sued and won a $900,000 settlement with an additional $63,000 in incurred expenses.
