Legal Liability for UAVs

Drones, or UAVs, are enjoying more use in varied industries and sectors across South Africa. With their increased usage comes an increased risk of loss or damage – not only to the drone itself, but also to third parties. Do you have legal liability insurance?

We at CC&A Insurance understand these risks and offer full-service drone cover for commercial users, as well as legal liability for third parties, and products liability.

Commercial drone operators – whether operating a single drone or a fleet – will require adequate insurance in order to safely and legally carry out their business. In fact, most businesses require proof of acceptable insurance before hiring the services of a UAV operator.

A wise commercial drone operator will understand that the damages resulting from an accident during a flight are not limited to their equipment, but can have far reaching effects leading to financial disaster.

Legal liability includes:

  • Cover for up to US$10 000 000
  • Compensatory damages in respect of accidental bodily injury (fatal or otherwise)
  • Compensatory damages to property
  • Payload
  • Cover during the R&D phase
  • Ground Station
  • Hull War and Allied perils liability extension

We understand the challenges faced by UAV manufacturers, as well as UAV sales and UAV repair businesses in South Africa – which is why our UAV insurance includes UAV products liability cover.

Products Liability includes:

  • Bodily injury or property damage arising out of products manufactured
  • Legal costs incurred in the defence of any claims

We are certain that our drone insurance options will satisfy your needs and we look forward to being of assistance.
