Piloting a drone for commercial purposes is risky, which is why it's important to secure the right coverage. If a drone injures someone, damages their property, or infringes on their privacy, you could face an expensive lawsuit. Drone insurance policies help cover legal costs, and can pay for repair or replacement of a unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and its accessories.
These insurance policies cover common risks faced by drone pilots.
A general liability policy covers basic risks of aerial photography, such as a drone crash that hurts someone or damages their property. Bundle it with commercial property damage coverage in a BOP.
A BOP is a cost-effective way for pilots of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) to buy commercial property insurance and general liability coverage together.
This policy covers legal defense costs if a client sues a drone photographer over the quality of their work. It's sometimes referred to as errors and omissions insurance (E&O).
Most states require workers' comp for aerial photography businesses that have employees. It also protects sole proprietors from work injury costs that health insurance might deny.
This policy covers the cost of accidents involving a vehicle owned by a drone photography business. Most states require this coverage for business-owned vehicles.
