In a previous article we discussed the following topic:
Child Care Insurance Louisiana – Is this Covered by my Home Insurance Policy?
In our previous article Ron and Tammy Bierson began to offer child care in their home and unfortunately one of the children being cared for was injured and the parents of the injured child filed a $500,000 lawsuit against the Bierson’s.
The Bierson’s file a claim with their home insurance company. Will they pay for this potential $500,000 claim? Unfortunately, the answer is likely no for the Bierson’s. This is why:
A homeowner’s insurance policy is not designed to cover the business pursuits of policyholders.
Please note how this is explained in one Lafayette Louisiana home insurance policy:
LIABILITY LOSSES WE DO NOT COVER
- Coverage E — Personal Liability and Coverage F — Medical Payments to Others do not apply to bodily injury or property damage:
Arising out of business pursuits of any insured. This exclusion does not apply to:
(1) Activities which are ordinarily incident to non-business pursuits;
(2) The occasional or part-time business pursuits of any insured who is under 23 years of age.
Some stay-at-home mothers want to make extra money by offering childcare or babysitting services for a fee.
This activity is prohibited by insurance companies for the very reason as outlined in this claim scenario.
Please note that in some instances childcare could be covered if one of the insureds is under a certain age, and this age can vary from company to company. (Don’t assume it is 23 years of age with every company)
The particular company cited above bases their age at 23. Why is the age of importance? This is designed for younger individuals such as teenagers offering childcare in their parents’ home.
It’s not intended for a commercial enterprise which was clearly the case for the Bierson’s and so likely a claim would be denied in this situation.
If you offer childcare in your home it’s best to consider purchasing the appropriate commercial general liability insurance, otherwise you may find yourself on the losing end of a lawsuit without any protection from your insurance company!
