Specialty Insurance

Specialty insurance protects individuals, organizations, and businesses against financial losses.  Some risks don’t necessarily fit into package type policies like your home or auto policy and require the underwriting expertise from insurance companies that specialize in these types of risks.  Special events, prize indemnity, sports insurance, or even a wedding in the backyard all include risk and the possible occurrence for losses.

Sport Insurance

Recognizing the special requirements of athletes, we offer unique insurance programs for sports associations. For recreation, family, and community celebrations, we offer exclusive coverage for user groups and special events. Sport Insurance includes coverage for:

  • Sport Liability – No matter how careful you are, accidents happen. You can be sued by anyone who claims injury or damages resulting from your activities. You may not be liable, but you will need to be defended in court. A liability policy will pay for this defense and possibly costs awarded against you. Coverage is provided for all members of your organization including executives, managers, coaches, trainers, officials, employees, and volunteers while acting within the scope of their duties on your behalf.
  • Sport Accident – Coverage for practices, games, team travel. One plan covers all participants, managers, coaches, executives, and field officials throughout the games.
  • Commercial General Liability – Sport and recreation events can be a source of many liability exposures as bodily injury to participants and spectators are not uncommon. CGL provides coverage for bodily injury or property damage to a third party. See sport liability for additional detail.
  • Directors & Officers Liability – Directors and Officers (D&O) may be sued for actual or alleged error or omissions while performing their duties as officials of their organization. D&O will pay those sums the organization, directors, and officers become legally obligated to pay as compensatory damages because of a wrongful act.
  • Tenant Legal Liability – Covers the tenant’s liability for damage to rented premises the tenant occupies.
  • Employee Dishonesty – Provides coverage for the dishonest acts of employees and is included in crime coverage.
  • Legal Defense Expense – Designed to assist sports organizations with legal fees and expenses relating to disputes/claims against the association which are not covered by CGL or D&O (such as human rights and charter of rights issues). An example would be if a coach or player takes legal action to be reinstated to a sport, after that sport has expelled the individual with just cause (post game exposure).
