It may be time to start thinking about drone insurance. Consider some of these drone mishaps that made the news:
- A photographer using a drone to film a triathlon in Australia in April 2014 lost control of the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). The drone hit a runner’s head, causing minor injuries.
- During a 2014 promotion by TGI Fridays called “Mobile Mistletoe,” a drone carrying mistletoe over diners collided with a newspaper photographer covering the event, cutting her nose and chin.
- Several attendees at a festival in Virginia in the fall of 2013 were hurt when a drone being used to record the event crashed into spectator stands.
- In December 2015, a camera-carrying drone smashed into the ground just meters behind downhill skiing champion Marcel Hirscher at the World Cup.
