Why do PR agencies need insurance?

Handling PR can be a sensitive matter. Business insurance covers legal expenses if a client sues over a mistake, or claims a PR campaign caused financial loss. It also covers theft, data breaches, and injuries. Some policies, such as workers' comp for your employees, may be required by law.
