Taking Flight While Staying Grounded: The Technology and Liability of Drones in Construction

Unmanned aerial vehicles (a.k.a. “drones”) are changing the way construction companies do business. They’re also changing the way companies look at risk management and insurance coverage. From aerial photos to surveying to 3D scanning, drones can venture where humans and heavy machinery cannot; providing registered, cautiously operated and covered by your insurance policy are vital steps that must be taken before leaving the ground. A team of presenters will provide a look at the latest drone technology, the associated risk that must be considered and the legal implications of going up in the air.

Presenters: Mike Cairns, Owner (Aerial Image Solutions)
Joe Urquhart, CPCU, CRIS Vice President (Overmyer Hall Associates)
Don Leach, Attorney/Partner (Dinsmore & Shohl, LLP)
