“The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International trade group forecasts drones will produce $82 billion in economic value and create more than 100,000 new jobs in the first 10 years after widespread flights are ultimately approved.
There are now more registered unmanned aircraft in the United States than private and commercial aircraft combined…some 400,000 of these flying devices (oops…unmanned aircraft)”
Typically standard Commercial General Liability Insurance policies and Business owners Policies do not provide any Liability Coverage for “unmanned flying devices” or drones. If your company uses drones, you will need to purchase a specific policy for Drone Liability Coverage. SWFL Insurance Agency can provide this coverage…call us at 239-265-9577.
If your company hires or contracts other companies or individuals to conduct activities such as photography using drones, you should ask to be added as an “Additional Named Insured” on this policy and obtain a Certificate of Insurance showing same. Since this is a new and developing area of insurance, it will be wise to ask for a copy of the policy to review the coverage language. We can help you review this coverage.
