A restaurant recently paid $925,000 in a settlement after overserving a man who later lost control of his vehicle, resulting in an auto accident that severely injured two people. The intoxicated driver’s blood alcohol level was 0.332 percent, more than four times the legal limit.

Along with serving alcohol, countless other variables can affect a restaurant owner’s exposure, including location, ownership experience and amusement devices. With restaurants in Canada generating $85 billion in annual sales, this industry represents a significant opportunity for brokers to help business owners protect themselves from the inherent risks they face.
