Acting Teacher Insurance
As an acting teacher, your job is to help develop the skills and techniques necessary for an aspiring actor to perform on a stage or a set. Acting teachers pass down their knowledge about performing as a character in a story to their students so that they can grow into the new generation of actors.
There is a multitude of complex lessons that you have to teach, and it is your job to simplify and allow your students to learn in the most lenient way possible. Despite the seemingly innocent nature of your occupation, there are certain risks that you may experience on the way. These risks can lead to your student filing lawsuit claims against you, so you must be prepared to fight against these attacks. The best way to prevent you from suffering immense amounts of financial loss from these lawsuit claims, you should invest in insurance. There are several types of insurance that you can get to support you as an acting teacher.
General liability insurance is something every business needs. What this insurance does is protects you from any third-party damage to either your property or to a customer. For instance, a customer walking into your office trips on the stairs knocks over a vase and injures themselves as a result. The client would then want to file a lawsuit against you for their medical, but luckily for you, you have general liability insurance which would cover the broken vase, legal fees and any other fees that may come as a result of the lawsuit. Professional liability insurance is vital for any kind of teacher or coach. Professional liability insurance protects you and your professional practices. For example, you tell a client if they take lessons with you, you can help them land an acting role, but after months of lessons, they've yet to get any roles. As a result, they decide to take legal action against you for negligence, but luckily you have professional liability insurance which will cover any legal fees or other fees that come of it.
