Why do glass and glazing contractors need insurance?

Working with something as sharp and fragile as glass means high liability. Business insurance protects glass companies and glaziers from medical bills and other unexpected costs. It can cover a lawsuit filed by an injured customer, or accidental damage to a window pane. Some policies, like workers' compensation, are required by law.
