Hosting A Liability-Free Super Bowl Party
January 28, 2015
Protecting Yourself From Social Host Liability Laws
It is almost everyone’s favorite game day – Super Bowl! If you will be hosting a Super Bowl party this year, you have a wide range of planning to do, including responsibilities you must consider. Unfortunately, many homeowners fail to realize the liability risks associated with throwing a house party, until it is too late and they are faced with the potential of a liability claim. We want your Super Bowl party to be nothing short of amazing, which is why we have gathered these helpful tips for reducing your liability risks:
- If you will be serving drinks at your Super Bowl party, you might consider hiring a professional bartender. This individual is experienced in serving and will be able to monitor how much each guest has had to drink. A bartender may also be able to identify an intoxicated guest and let you know.
- When serving alcoholic beverages, always serve plenty of food and offer nonalcoholic options. The last thing you want is for partygoers to be consuming alcohol on an empty stomach or not have other beverage options.
- One of the most important things about hosting your own party is remaining aware of the condition of your guests. Even though you won’t have to drive home yourself, staying aware may mean not drinking as much as your friends.
- Have the phone number of a taxi company ready, just in case. You can even offer to pay for the taxi ride – just add that as another cost of having a successful party!
