Did you know your business can be sued by essentially anyone? Filing a lawsuit does not require any wrongdoing. It does however, require that you defend yourself. You can lose hundreds of thousands of dollars defending yourself against a lawsuit.
This is a very real issue. I personally had one friend who lost $50,000 defending his business in a lawsuit that he won. Malicious customers or clients can tie you up in lawsuits just to damage you financially.
There are also stories of people that will go to businesses and injury themselves on the property just to sue the business. Or suing the business due to not being handicap accessible or other loopholes.

- Your companies advertising
- Injuries from your product or service
- Injuries at your place of business
- Customer service errors
- Your employees attack your customer verbally or otherwise

- Or just any reason at all.
At the end of the day, no matter how great of a business owner you are, there are endless ways someone can sue you.
