Someday in the not-too-distant future, we’ll all be able to reunite with our families and friends and socialize like we used to. Although it often goes overlooked when people plan any large gathering with relatives, you should ask yourself, “do I need event insurance for a family reunion?”

Even though it isn’t common knowledge, in most cases, the simple answer to the question of whether or not you need event insurance for a family reunion is yes.

Peace of Mind
Even if you are hosting the event at a public area that wouldn’t otherwise have insurance, like a municipal park, you will need one-day liability insurance or short-term venue liability insurance. It may seem like an unnecessary precaution, but keep in mind that before any unexpected accident, someone has uttered the phrase ‘what could go wrong’ in some regard. Getting event insurance for your family reunion ensures that you can relax and enjoy the moment without worrying about something going wrong.

There is no one size fits all mould for the types of accidents that could occur at a family reunion, and the results can range from damaged property to personal injury. Regardless of the outcome, you’ll want to protect your family members financially and medically, which is why it’s important to acquire event insurance for your next family reunion. Although there are few things stronger than family, if someone injures themselves by tripping on the steps or slipping on a spilled drink, and they can’t work, they might be forced to sue to cover their lost wages and medical costs. If you are sued, the policy will provide you with a lawyer to defend you and the policy will pay court judgment costs if you are found at fault for the injury.

Depending on how large your family is or how far down your family tree the guest-list for your family reunion goes, you may need to rent things like seating and place settings to accommodate everyone. Should any of those rented items become broken or damaged, you’ll wish you had gotten event insurance for your family reunion beforehand.
