Why do insurance agents and brokers need business insurance?

Just as you tell your clients, it's worth getting insured to avoid paying more down the road. A disagreement over a claim or an exclusion could lead to an expensive lawsuit. Business insurance covers financial losses related to disputes, injuries, and other incidents that could devastate your business.
