If a client trips over your surveying equipment and breaks a wrist, or you make a mistake while staking a property line, you could be sued. Land surveyor insurance can pay for legal expenses, including any settlements or judgments. It also covers the cost of employee injuries, theft, and other risks.
These policies cover the most common risks faced by land surveyors.

Workers’ comp is required in almost every state for land surveying businesses that have employees. It also protects sole proprietors from work injury costs that health insurance might deny.
