Questions About Product Liability Insurance For Sporting Equipment

Product liability insurance for sports equipment protects those who produce, manufacture, distribute or sell sports equipment from liability claims that may arise from their products’ exposure to consumers. If your product causes bodily injury or property damage to another person or piece of property, you could be held responsible for the costs associated with those damages. Defense costs alone could put a business under.

Product liability insurance can protect your business from claims arising from your sports equipment that have been sold in the marketplace. Every product carries unique risks, and Insurance Canopy can help protect you against those risks.

The sporting equipment products you sell or manufacture expose you and your business to lawsuits. The median product liability award in 2017 was $1.5 million. One of the main issues business owners have faced and continue to, is concerns around liability arising from their products and operations. In our litigious society, more and more third-party lawsuits are being filed, and you can’t keep your business exposed to that risk.

Under the definition of "strict liability," a person who is injured by a product may be entitled to compensation for their injuries without showing that the manufacturer or seller of the product was actually negligent. Attorneys costs, court fees, medical bills, and settlement costs can accumulate at a staggering rate. Not having liability coverage puts everything you have built at risk.

Product liability insurance from Insurance Canopy for your sports equipment can help protect your business from claims arising from your products and likely protect you from paying for a lawsuit out of your own pocket.
