Internet Exclusive:Â As you celebrate with family, friends, and loved ones itâ€™s a good idea to educate yourself about your responsibilities as you welcome your party revelers. While we intend for our guests to eat, drink, and be merry, sometimes accidents happen â€“ and that can be a costly headache for a homeowner.
â€śThere are a variety of situations or accidents that can occur that could put a serious damper on your party,â€ť explains Kip Diggs, Media Relations for State Farm. â€śWhat if someone slips and falls, requires medical attention, or has too much to drink, then drives, and causes an accident? These situations are unpleasant to think about when planning a party, but homeowners should always make sure they are prepared for worst case scenarios.â€ť
Before hosting a party, talk to your State Farm agent, broker, or insurance provider about your homeowner insurance policy. They will help you determine if you have adequate liability coverage.
Most homeowners/renters policies cover bodily injury, property damage, and will provide for legal defense should a homeowner get sued in civil court as a result of an occurrence that is covered by the policy.
Your agent can also help you determine if an umbrella policy is needed. Umbrella policies (also called Personal Liability Umbrella Policies) offer an additional level of protection beyond the limits of a homeowner policy.
Everyone loves a party with friends to watch the big gameâ€”but some take the partying too far. Forty percent of the vehicle-related deaths that occurred after the big game in 2010 were due to drunk driving, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.Â
These suggestions can help hosts and their guests keep the partyâ€”and the ride homeâ€”safer when the big game takes place this February.
WGNS has confirmed that DUI Sobriety Checkpoints and increased patrols are planned for both Saturday night before the game and Sunday during and after the game. Be smart and DON'T Â Drink and Drive.Â
