Why do irrigation professionals need business insurance?

Working with pipe cutters and compact excavators on someone else's property brings high risk. Irrigation business insurance helps cover medical bills, property damage and theft, and legal fees if someone sues your business. Some policies may be required by landlords, lenders, and the law.
