The holidays are a wonderful opportunity to get together with friends and family to celebrate. At a time where generosity fills the air, it may surprise you that it also comes with risks. If you host a holiday party when a mishap occurs, you may be liable and could be sued. Here are a few tips to avoid holiday party risks:
- Salt and shovel walkways, driveways and porches.
- Encourage responsible drinking. If you believe a guest is too intoxicated to drive, be willing to take their keys or call a cab.
- Decrease your risk of foodborne illness by properly washing fruits and vegetables to kill bacteria that may be living on the surface. Be sure to keep food at the recommended temperatures to avoid food poisoning.
- Stow away personal items are targets for thieves including checkbooks, bank statements and tax returns. Lock away any valuable jewelry, money or heirlooms.
Some risks are unforeseeable but knowing that holiday liabilities are covered by insurance can put a host’s mind at ease. To learn more about adequate homeowner’s insurance to protect your assets, contact a trusted AssuredPartners NL agent at (844) 507-2528.
