DOVER, Del. (AP) โ€” Delaware Insurance Commissioner Karen Weldin Stewart and the National Association of Insurance Commissioners have warned people that they may want to get insurance before buying drones for Christmas.

According to the Delaware State News (http://bit.ly/1P93w48 ), Stewart says people should check local, state and federal laws before operating the drones.

Insurance commissioners say the devices raises some critical insurance issues, ranging from personal injury and property damage to privacy concerns.

Stewart says the drones can present a significant risk to property and life on the ground in the event of an accident, which is a liability that the drone operator could be held responsible for.

According to the FAA, pilots of unmanned aircrafts have the same responsibility to fly safely as manned aircraft pilots.
