Why do talent agencies need insurance?

Legal action brought by a disgruntled actor, writer, or director could put you out of business. Talent agency insurance covers financial losses from lawsuits, burglaries, auto accidents, and data breaches. Some policies, such as workers' compensation insurance, may be required by law.
