13th July 2010

Those who are in charge of planning any kind of special event where the

public is expected to attend would normally begin their planning by

obtaining special event insurance to protect themselves from the

possibility of being sued in the event of an accident.  Every year

hundreds of thousands of people all over the world are injured during

accidents in public places or during special events.  If you do not want

to be a part of that statistic you need to properly plan for safety

precautions as well as insurance.  When you apply for event insurance

you will have the opportunity to review the terms of your policy which

will give you some insight into the kind of safety regulations and

precautions you cab take to not only avoid accidents but also to avoid 

being sued in the events of something happening.  

Many special

event insurance policies will include precautions like having proper

signs up to help people avoid tripping and falling as well as avoiding

any hanging wiring when you are installing electronics equipment and

things like that.  If the precautions and stipulations of your insurance

policy are violated as a result of your workers carelessness or as a

result of your setup personnel being unaware of the requirements our

policy can be voided and you can be subject to a long and expensive law

suit.  It is wise to not only review the terms of your policy but to

also ensure you and your staff are following those rules very closely.

event insurance is often very expensive, but the cost highly outweighs
