Nightclubs involve drinking, eating, and dancing, which can cause various liabilities. If someone is injured in your club, they could sue the business. Brawls may also occur, and patrons may get intoxicated and cause damage or injury to others. At Tabak Insurance, we offer comprehensive coverage for all liabilities. Our company specializes in providing insurance for nightclubs. Here’s an overview of our popular coverage policies:
1. Business Owner’s Policy (BOP)
BOP insurance coverage is an economic choice for nightclub owners. A business owner’s policy bundles general liability insurance with commercial property insurance into one plan. Such policies can protect your nightclub from litigations from slip-and-fall injuries and damaged customer property.
BOP coverage also protects business property from damage and theft. At Tabak Insurance, we provide business owner’s policies you can customize to fit your nightclub’s needs. We also have independent insurance policies for general liability and commercial property. You can combine the standalone policies with BOP to cover all risks.
2. General Liability Insurance
Tabak Insurance provides commercial general liability policies to cover third-party risks your business faces. General liability insurance can pay for the damages if a patron sues your nightclub over an accidental injury. The insurance covers customer bodily injuries, damaged customer property, libel, and advertising injuries.
General liability insurance pays for bodily injuries and property damages in your nightclub or perimeter areas like the parking lot. The policy often excludes damages and injuries caused due to intoxication, even if the patron is served in your establishment. Customers may still sue the establishment, so such risks are covered by liquor liability insurance.
3. Liquor Liability Insurance
Nightclubs, bars, and restaurants that serve alcoholic drinks must purchase adequate liquor liability insurance. The policy covers legal fees, property damages, and medical costs if an intoxicated guest harms another customer. People can consume more alcohol than they should, which results in intoxication and uncontrolled behavior.
An intoxicated patron can injure others or damage property. If your staff serves visibly intoxicated people more alcohol, your nightclub will be liable for the damages and injuries they cause. Our liquor liability insurance will cover such risks.
The policy often excludes coverage for injuries sustained in fights. You’ll need assault and battery liability insurance for such.
4. Commercial Property Insurance
Tabak Insurance offers extensive coverage for your commercial property. You need commercial property insurance to protect your nightclub from going bankrupt if the building or assets are damaged. The coverage pays for damages caused by natural disasters, vandalism, accidents, equipment breakdown, and food spoilage.
Commercial property insurance pays the cost of repairing and reconstructing the building after vandalism, fire, or flood. The insurance covers the tables, chairs, computers, registers, kitchenware, trophies, and other items. Business property insurance can also pay for damaged inventory, lost income from business interruption, and other named or unnamed perils.
5. Errors & Omissions (E&O) Insurance
E&O insurance will also protect your nightclub from litigations from inaccurate professional advice, misrepresentation, and unfair business deals. If a company rents your nightclub and doesn’t find enough seating space as represented, they may sue you for misrepresentation. Delivering drinks to a ceremony after the promised timeframe can also result in litigations that E&O insurance can cover.
Errors and omissions damages are measured as a financial loss. The loss can be in the form of lost investment, revenue, or money paid for a product or service. E&O insurance can also protect your nightclub if a fight breaks out and you have no coverage for assault and battery. We recommend including assault and battery coverage in your general liability insurance to preserve your E&O insurance for specific litigations.
6. Workers Compensation Policy
Many states require nightclubs and other businesses to provide adequate workers’ compensation insurance to their employees. Workers’ compensation insurance protects the company from lawsuits raised by injured employees. The insurance also protects sole proprietors from work injury costs left out of health insurance policies.
Our workers’ compensation policies cover employee medical expenses, disability benefits, and employee injury lawsuits. Nightclub workers are exposed to many risks. If your employee gets injured at work, you’re responsible for covering their medical expenses. Tabak Insurance will help you structure a sound policy to protect your workers and nightclub.
Other Insurance Policies for Nightclubs
Nightclubs need many other policies, depending on the nature of the business and risks. You may need employment practices liability insurance (EPL) to protect the company from discrimination and unfair treatment lawsuits. Additional nightclub policies include Directors & Officers insurance, equipment breakdown insurance, and lost income insurance. Tabak Insurance can help you review and select the best policies for your establishment.
