Assault & Battery

Every so often when we speak with Restaurant amd Bar Owners, we run into a situation where the client (or potential client) feels that they simply just don’t need Assault & Battery Coverage. I cringe when I hear these types of things: “we just don’t have that type of customer.” “In 25 years I’ve never had a claim!” “It’s not that kind of place.” Unfortunately, if you are serving alcohol, you run the risk of an Assault & Battery claim at any given time and they are never cheap.

Often times some one that gets punched on the face will be awarded $30,000 to $50,000. For a stabbing you are lucky if it stays under $500,000 and when someone is shot, it can go into excess of $1 Million. When someone steps foot into your business, you guarantee their safety according to state law and are therefore responsible for their well being. Give us a call and we will be happy to tell you more…
