Clown insurance is an important component of your business and is designed to protect your financial assets if you were to be sued as a result of your business operations. You could be held liable for claims that include injuries, illnesses, or damages that come from your entertainment services. The legal costs alone from claims like these can be financially devastating. With clown insurance, you’ll have the protection you need in case something goes wrong or someone files a lawsuit against you.
Today we’ll talk about what’s covered in a clown insurance policy and how you can get the coverage you need.
Why Clown Insurance?
There are several reasons why you should consider purchasing clown insurance. Liability insurance can help you be seen as a serious professional, which can help you find more events to perform at. Clients may also require you to show proof of insurance before hiring you and venue owners may require you to add them as an additional insured. Insurance also provides a financial safety net so you can perform and do what you love with peace of mind.
The Basic Coverages
A basic 1–3 day general liability insurance policy starts at $59. An annual policy starts at $199. The annual policy has monthly payments available after a 25% down payment, or you can pay $14.93 monthly. Clown liability insurance covers claims that may arise from your operations. For example, if a party patron injures themselves by tripping over your equipment or you damage a venue, clown liability insurance could help cover the costs of these claims.
