LOS ANGELES, March 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Nearly 40,000 golfers are admitted to emergency rooms every year after being injured at play, according to Golf Digest's website. The Consumer Products Safety Commission reports that approximately 15,000 golf cart-related injuries require emergency room treatment every year. With golf tournament season fast approaching, these statistics are a critical reminder to organizers that golfing mishaps are not unusual.
One way organizers can protect themselves from unexpected claims is by securing liability event insurance coverage. That's why R.V. Nuccio and Associates, Inc. is shining the spotlight on its special event insurance program, offering industry-tailored protection for golf tournaments at the most competitive rates at http://www.specialeventinsurance.com.
"As the organizer of a golf tournament, you could find yourself liable for certain mishaps that occur during the event," says Robert V. Nuccio, president of R.V. Nuccio and Associates. "A wayward golf ball, a flying club, or guests who drive drunk are just a few scenarios that cause serious liability."
R.V. Nuccio and Associates' special event liability insurance provides broad protection for situations in which the golf tournament event holder must defend itself against lawsuits or pay damages for bodily injury or property damage to third parties. This policy also extends protection to the venue and/or sponsors of the event when necessary by adding them to the policy as an additional insured.
With R.V. Nuccio and Associates, organizers can design their event insurance policy to meet their unique specifications. General liability insurance (also referred to as CGL or commercial general liability) can be purchased with limits of up to $2 million.
Golf tournament organizers can quote and buy their special event insurance policy instantly online 24/7 with R.V. Nuccio and Associates' convenient website - saving significant time and money. Policyholders can also print Certificates of Insurance anytime - even on weekends.
According to Nuccio, even charity event organizers must be diligent in securing proper event insurance protection as they are held to the same legal standards and share the same legal liability exposure as commercial organizations. "When you're raising funds for a good cause, you simply can't afford to let an unexpected incident wipe out your proceeds. It can be difficult to explain to donors and to the charity relying on you. If sued, you must defend your organization or lose by default, and legal costs alone are enough to wipe out many charitable organizations," he says.
