Street Party Liability Insurance

The Risks

You should have liability insurance even if your local council doesn't insist that you do, this does not mean that the people organising the event cannot be held legally responsible, for people injured or property damaged at your street party. It is still worth considering cover.

Do not assume it is covered elsewhere, even club or association insurances may not extend to outdoor events for example.

Anyone who falls, trips or slips at your event; during the event itself and whilst it is being set up and broken down, could possibly make a claim against you, so adequate insurance cover is a necessity.

If a volunteer gets injured, would they sue you? They could be held personally liable if someone gets injured as the result of something they do whilst helping out at the event.

People are becoming more used to exercising their legal rights, and pursuing legal action in order to obtain compensation for injury or damage to their property caused by a third party. It can be expensive to lose a legal action. Reforms to the legal system and a claimant-friendly legal environment mean that awards for personal injury continue to rise.

All of the issues outlined and more need to be addressed and can be by a decent event insurance policy. Every body needs liability insurance - organisers of street parties are no exception.
