Insuring Drones--What You Need to Know


Though there is no current requirement that drones be insured, the number of accidents that happen--and the types of accidents that can happen--make it imperative that drone owners and operators protect themselves with liability insurance. As more and more hobbyists and businesses acquire and use drones, they will be asking their insurance agents some important questions.
