Public and Personal Liability Insurance
Simply Defined for The Ang
ling Community
This cover provides protection for The Club itself and, by definition, its Officers and
Committee Members. The cover would be operative in the event that a Court Award was made following a ruling that found The Club, or its officers, had been guilty of negligence that had led to Damage to a Third Party or their Property. Without this cover, in the event of an award, The Court could well pursue Officers of the Club on an individual basis.
Hypothetical Example:"The Club arranged pegs at a particular distance apart for a match and, subsequently, one angler blinded an adjacent angler. The Court could decide that The Club had been negligent as the pegs should have been twice as far apart which would have led to such an accident being avoided".
then there is
Personal Liability Cover - This cover provides protection should a similar finding be made but The Court decided that said Damage was the result of an individuals personal negligence. In other words this cover would be against the individual concerned operative in circumstances where The Club had no responsibility for the individual’s actions. This section of the insurance, by definition, also provides Member to Member cover.
Hypothetical Example: "An individual angler was fishing socially on Club waters and did not check before casting. In fact a member of the public was only 12 feet or so behind the casting angler and he or she was rendered blind in one eye after against the individual concerned catching a hook. Obviously The Club could not be held responsible. Any Court award would therefore be made personally against the individual concerned".
Without Personal Liability Cover in place there are certain circumstances in which officers/Committee members can become embroiled in an Award made against one of their individual members if that individual is unable to pay such an Award.
It is estimated that over 80% of accidents on or around fishing waters are due to the negligence of individual anglers and, as a consequence, are not covered by standard Public Liability insurance. The inclusion of Personal Liability cover in MEAD’s Club Liability insurance package is therefore regarded by many as essential.
(the latter to include Assault if required).
It is necessary to point out that all comments, statements and hypothetical examples above are just that and, as such, cannot be used as a benchmark in the context of any factual set of circumstances. Underwriters cannot be held responsible for any decisions made in a Court of Law. In certain circumstances, it may be that Underwriters would consider appealing against any such Ruling if they, and their advisers, considered it legally appropriate.
