Potential Claims Scenarios Facing Stadiums
For indoor and outdoor stadiums, hockey arenas, concert venues and other related facilities, your goal is to host sold-out events and packed houses every night. But the higher your success, the higher your exposures and potential liability.
The commercial insurance specialists at ALIGNED can provide you with the comprehensive coverage of a stadium insurance plan tailored to your unique risks and designed to respond efficiently and effectively to your claims.
These are just a few examples of the loss and potential liability scenarios facing stadiums:
- A guest slips on a slippery surface and falls down the stairs at your stadium, suffering multiple injuries and an extended stay in the hospital.
- A hailstorm causes significant damage to your stadium’s playing surface, digital scoreboard or roof.
- A rooftop HVAC unit is damaged in an electrical storm, forcing you to close until repairs are completed and lose revenue.
- An intoxicated fan that was served alcohol at your stadium drives home and is involved in an accident that causes thousands of dollars in property damage.
- Hot dogs served at your concession stand cause food poisoning for several guests.
- A gun scare during a concert causes concertgoers to be trampled and crushed against exits that were improperly barricaded to prevent people from sneaking in.
As a stadium operator, you’re all too aware that the costs of legitimate and frivolous claims add up quickly and that having the right liability coverage is vital for protecting your operations from being overwhelmed by lawyer’s fees, settlement costs and potential awards for damages.
