Liquor Liability Insurance 4.25/5 (85.00%) 4 votes

Liquor and alcohol comes in many shapes and sizes.  The effects it can have on people can be equally as varied.  For businesses that sell liquor and alcohol, liquor liability insurance is just as important as having a license to sell liquor.

Liquor liability insurance protects businesses that sell liquor from liability claims against them as a result of the actions of inebriated patrons.  If a drunk person leaves the bar, liquor liability insurance protects the business that provided the liquor from any damages the drunk person may cause.  Since damage caused by people under the influence, including the possibility of death, can be very significant, businesses that serve alcohol could be required to cover very expensive damages if they do not hold liquor liability insurance.
