Why do land surveyors need insurance?

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.
