The Insurance Industry’s Game Of Drones

 Tuesday, April 25, 2017


Trust a curious incident involving a dropped pizza pie to underline how nebulous and far behind insurance companies are when it comes to drones. The case stems from New Hampshire where a drone delivering pizza fell on a man and his car. When the pizzeria was sued for more than $300,000, the restaurant’s insurance company refused to back the claim because its policies exclude liability for all incidents involving “aircraft.” Unfortunately for the company, its policy didn’t include “drones” in its definition of aircraft. After a lengthy legal battle, the highest court of New Hampshire forced the insurance company to pay the claim.
