Why do videographers need insurance?

If a corporate client trips over a light stand and breaks an arm, a memory card containing raw footage of a couple’s wedding goes missing, or a marketing video is submitted after the deadline, a videographer could be sued. Videographer insurance protects against claims of property damage, negligence, and other common risks.
