What are some examples of when dance studio insurance would be used?

Here are some potential scenarios where dance studio insurance would provide protection:

Scenario 1: A dancer falls while practicing a new technique and suffers a minor fracture. Her out-of-pocket medical expenses are covered by the excess accident medical policy. The studio knows the dancer’s parents are upset the injury occurred, but they seem pleased that the medical bills were picked up by the studio’s insurance. The student does not come to classes at the studio while recovering, and the studio owner is surprised when she receives a letter from an attorney representing the family several months after the injury happened. The letter demands reimbursement for the mother’s missed time from work and for lost college scholarship funds the dancer has allegedly lost as a result of the injury. The letter argues the studio is at fault for not providing appropriate instruction during the class where the injury occurred. The owner immediately shares the letter with American Specialty, who retains an attorney to defend the studio against the allegations.

Scenario 2: A parent waiting for his child during class slips and falls in water that has leaked from a small water cooler. The cooler had been known to leak, and the owner asked staff to keep an eye on it and keep the area dry until she could replace it or get it fixed. On this particular day, everyone was busy and it got missed. Unfortunately, the parent had a prior back injury making him more susceptible to injury, and he sustains an injury that prevents him from returning to work for several months. The father hires an attorney to represent him in trying to secure payment from the studio for his medical bills, physical therapy and time off work, which is a sizable sum of money. American Specialty appoints defense counsel to try to negotiate a settlement because there is clear negligence on the part of the studio.

These are just a few examples where dance studio insurance will come to the studio’s defense and protect its valuable assets and ability to continue operating.
