Do Freelance Videographers
Need Liability Insurance?

As a freelance videographer, you never know where your next job might take you. You work with a variety of clients in a variety of places, which is great… but also risky. Trip and fall accidents, property damage, and equipment loss are all common risks faced by freelance videographers. Just one claim could cost your business tens of thousands of dollars or more to resolve. Freelance videographer insurance can protect your business from the out-of-pocket cost of claims should legal action ever be taken against you.
