Why do drafters need insurance?

If a drafter makes an error in a CAD drawing that negatively impacts a client, it could result in a lawsuit. Business insurance shields draftsmen from the high cost of professional liability lawsuits, as well as financial losses from injuries, property damage, and theft.
