When it comes to the bar and restaurant business, the environment poses many various physical and psychological risks for employees. The numerous risks can range from minor injuries, poor safety conditions causing wounds and infections, to serious hazards such as fires.

If you run a bar, nightclub, tavern or other type of alcohol-serving restaurant in the state of Texas (or really anywhere in the U.S.) it’s highly recommended that you carry liquor liability insurance for your establishment. Specifically, a liquor liability policy covers legal fees and court costs for most alcohol-induced incidents that occur at your business in the event that you’re sued or found liable of some sort of altercation. These three recent liquor liability insurance lawsuits in Texas can serve as a great reminder as to why it’s so important to get insurance for bars, restaurants, and even events.
In the state of Texas, it’s not mandatory for alcohol-serving establishments to carry a liquor liability policy. While some establishments may be OK with gambling that they’ll never be roped into a court case, the old adage “better safe than sorry” is a fantastic reason for many bars to purchase a liquor liability policy.
For instance, if […]
Owning your own bar or tavern in the “Lonestar State” can be a very rewarding – and a very lucrative – situation. And while mingling with customers, joining in the joy or heartbreak of your patrons based on how the big game ended and seeing new promotions or incentives pay off in sales can be satisfying, owning a bar isn’t all just fun and games. Insurance for bars can seem a little overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be!
Yes, there’s a certain amount of risk associated with bar ownership that you have to be aware of also. Thankfully, your insurance coverage can eliminate much of this risk – but there are a lot of different aspects of coverage that you need to be mindful of when it comes to insuring your bar. Failure to have a certain type of coverage, for instance, can really come back to bite you.
In order […]
Do you operate an establishment in the state of Texas? Does the majority of your entity’s revenue come from alcohol sales? If you’ve answered “yes” to both of these questions, then you’d be required by law to acquire a liquor liability insurance policy – that is, should a bill proposed by Texas state representative Chris Turner be signed into law.
House Bill 409, which has been nicknamed the “dram shop bill,” was originally proposed by Turner in 2013, again in 2015 and was more recently re-filed for consideration in early 2016. According to a report from Claims Journal, the bill was originally proposed following a 2-year-old’s eventual death when the car he was riding in was hit by a drunk driver who had been over-served at a local watering hole. However, what may soon become mandatory for many restaurants in the state of Texas should serve as a stern reminder for restaurants, […]
The right insurance policy may not always be fun to pay for, but it’s essential when it comes to protecting your property – or in this case, your business. Yes, when it comes to safeguarding your restaurant, there are a lot of different factors that you have to consider. This is especially true if your restaurant also includes a bar or serves alcohol. On that note, it’s always good to give your business a regular checkup to make sure that you’re covered to the extent that you should be.

If there’s one type of insurance that you want to make absolutely sure your restaurant has, it’s general liability. Specifically, general liability protects your business from both known and unknown risks. With general liability insurance, things like lawsuits resulting from […]
If you operate a bar or restaurant where adult beverages are served, you’re likely well aware of the risks you face – specifically, the risks that are tied to the alcohol that you sell. To review, alcohol affects the brain by interfering with its communication pathways, thereby potentially causing changes in mood, behavior and a lack of coordination among those who consume it. Now, that’s not to say that there’s nothing wrong with having a drink or two, but when one’s drinking gets out of hand, so does the likelihood that something can go awry. We’re talking about bar fights, injury and property damage.
And if something goes awry inside your establishment and you’re roped into an alcohol-related lawsuit over the incident, you could be forced to pay thousands of dollars out of pocket in court and attorney fees. That is, of course, unless you’re properly covered with Liquor Liability Insurance.
