What to Know About Premises Liability and Superbowl Parties
The Super Bowl is a big event that leads to many people attending parties whether or not they like football. If you are hosting a Super Bowl party or any social gathering, it is important to understand the laws of premises liability and Super Bowl parties.
Premises Liability and Super Bowl Parties
If you will be hosting a Super Bowl party or any social gathering in your home, you should have homeowner's or renter’s insurance. Before the event, you should review what your policy covers and the policy limitations. As the host, you are legally obligated to use reasonable caution to protect your guests from harm. Without proper insurance coverage, you could be held personally liable for damages if an accident occurs.
Hosting a Super Bowl Party
When hosting a social gathering you must ensure the premises are reasonably safe for your guests. These are some of the ways you can reduce the risk of an accident or injury when hosting a Super Bowl party or social gathering:
Remove or repair hazards.
To reduce the risk of slip and fall accidents, adequately notify guests of hazards that cannot be removed.
Be aware of guest activities and be proactive to prevent injuries.
Use safe food handling practices including ensuring food temperatures remain safe to prevent foodborne illnesses.
Limit alcohol consumption and prevent guests from driving while intoxicated.
Although accidents can happen even if you take every precaution, failure to take action to limit guests’ exposure to hazards can result in you being liable for damages that occur.
Super Bowl Party Consumption
Many people enjoy alcohol at social gatherings like Super Bowl parties. Although you are allowed to serve alcohol to guests who are 21 or older, you do bear some legal responsibility for what guests do after they drink alcohol. Failure to limit consumption or prevent drunk driving could result in you being held liable in a civil suit for damages caused by your guests.
