Liability insurance – do you need it?

Thursday, September 27th, 2018

You own a horse that you board away from home.  The boarding facility is professional and takes necessary precautions to ensure they are running a top-notch program.  They also have insurance.  Do you need insurance as well?

The answer is Yes!

It is important that the boarding facility carries a liability policy for their equine operation but that policy protects them in the event of a claim.  You, as the horse owner, also could get named in a claim even if you weren’t present at the time of the incident.  In order to get removed from the law suit, you will need to hire an attorney.  This is why you need liability insurance for yourself.

A typical policy will run about $275 for the year — a small price to pay for peace of mind.

Give us a call to discuss your liability needs.  We’d be happy to give you a quote.  If you need quotes for mortality/medical, we can help with that too.  Give Ron Johnson a call at 614-875-3755.

Would you buy a “winning” lottery ticket that someone offered you at a discount price?

We hope not because almost certainly it’s a fraud, even though the seller may provide a good reason why he/she supposedly wants to sell rather than make a claim.

Crooks are experts at altering non-winning tickets and scratch cards to look like they have the correct numbers, and have been doing just that, most recently in North Carolina.

Just buy your ticket or card from authorized outlets only and then let Lady Luck do the rest!
