Insurance Underwriting of UAV Uses

The UAV market continues to expand with many examples and uses multiplying by the day (some currently legal and some illegal in the United States).  SwissRE has a good article and white paper on it.

The white paper goes into the history and most major fields that UAVs are and can be used in and the current legal states in the United States and Canada.  Legal risks are injury due to crashes, breaking FAA or Transport Canada rules, trespassing, nuisance, privacy, stalking, wiretap issues, and law enforcement abuse.

These may not be all the risks with UAVs in the future, expect the list to continue to grow in the future as more commercial flights are done and UAV regulations mature.
