The Right Insurance Coverage for Restaurants Why It Is So ImportantPosted: May 17, 2017
There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes you do not see from your table in a restaurant, from preparation to serving of the food. If you are a restaurant owner you know it’s hard work and strong dedication to keep you restaurant going. Mishaps can happen from the kitchen to the dining room, so make sure your dreams and hard work for your restaurant are completely covered with liability insurance.
From the type of food you serve to how it is kept is vital. A daily check for freshness and standing by the health codes should assure you a well run kitchen. The wonderful dishes you serve are going to be eaten by trusting customers and employees alike, and if for any reason a break out of food poisoning should happen you will have to answer for the consequences.
There is a risk of injury for employees when working with knives, hot ovens, stoves, fryers and the such. As an owner you must be able to cover any expenses if this occurs. Some accidents maybe smaller then others, but the fact is you are responsible, and this is where liability insurance comes in for you.
Consider liability insurance as a silent partner if need be. Without it a restaurant could be out of business in a very short time if anything should happen from injury to employees or customers. Liability insurance means claims would be investigated and sorted out for fraud and also find out if a restaurant is not at fault. If for example that your restaurant was not at fault or it was a fraudulent claim being made against you, then having liability insurance could insure a counter suit for your restaurant. If for some reason a restaurant is found at fault, there would be coverage for the legal cost and help with the cost of the claim.
Don’t put off checking into liability insurance or updating your coverage. It could be the difference of being open one day and closed the next.
