Products Liability for UAV Manufacturers

We have found many manufacturers believe that once they have sold their UAV on to a customer, they are no longer liable. However, if there is some kind of malfunction the manufacturer will absolutely be accountable, and unfortunately in many instances even if it does have nothing to do with the manufacturer, they will still have a claim against them that needs defending. A lot of the SME manufacturers would be seriously impacted by a serious products liability claim. We are able to provide the following essential coverage to UAV manufacturers:

–         Bodily injury or property damage arising out of products manufactured by the Insured once such products are no longer in the possession or control of the insured

–         Insurers will pay legal costs incurred in the defence of any claim made against the insured up to sum insured

–         Also able to provide coverage for parts manufacturers; if, for example, you supply the engines to a UAV manufacturer
