Stephen Prignano quoted about drone operations
Posted By McIntyre Tate LLP
McIntyre Tate LLP Partner Stephen Prignano was recently quoted in a RI Lawyers Weekly article regarding the liability implications of drone operations in civilian airspace. The article highlighted the increased use of drones by individuals and businesses in a variety of contexts. Stephen commented that increased drone use will likely lead to increased risk of liability among operators, owners and businesses as a result of negligent operations. The article also discussed liability of drone operators and owners for possible privacy violations and data breaches. Commenting on possible insurance coverage for such liability, Stephen pointed out that there is not a robust commercial insurance market for drone operations, and several exclusions in existing homeowner's and commercial risk policies will likely preclude coverage in many situations.
