Why do commercial landlords need business insurance?

Landlords face significant risks. A tenant could file a lawsuit, or a fire could break out at a rental property. Commercial insurance helps landlords bounce back from legal costs and other financial losses. Some policies, such as workers' compensation, may be required by law.
