Why do lawyers need insurance?

As an attorney, you’d rather be practicing law than being named as a defendant. From premises liability to advertising injuries, you know exactly how costly litigation can be. Business insurance can pay for settlements and other expenses from a lawsuit, allowing you to carry on with your work.
