What Is Event Liquor Liability Insurance?

Event liquor liability insurance protects your business if a claim were to occur. Claims can include a guest at an event who imbibes too much alcohol, becomes intoxicated, and drives off. As they are pulling away, they cause an accident with several serious injuries. You could be required to pay thousands in medical fees and expenses. If you serve alcohol at parties or bartend at events then you need alcohol insurance for parties. Hosts are those who allow partygoers to bring their own alcohol. Servers are those who provide alcohol at an event.
