When working with the public and the people use your products or they are in your place of business there is always a chance something could go wrong and there could be a lawsuit filed against you. If the person who files the lawsuit wins, you could be paying out a lot of money out of your own pocket.

With internet marketing growing at such a fast pace and more and more people jumping in and setting up there own web business, there is a much greater chance for lawsuits being filed against the web owner for various claims.
