What Insurance Coverage Do Electricians Need?

Electricians are constantly exposed to a lot of risks - it’s just the nature of the business.

That’s why Simply Business makes it easy to tailor your business coverage, so you’ll get exactly what you need.

That means no overpaying for coverage you don’t need. No policies that leave you feeling unsure about how you’re protected. That’s the Simply Business promise.

So what are some electricians insurance requirements you should have? Take a look:

Electricians Liability Insurance

Electricians liability insurance - also known as general liability or commercial general liability (CGL) - is a type of policy that covers you and your business in case of claims involving property damage, accidents, and/or certain types of lawsuits.

General liability insurance can provide you coverage if:

  • You damage a client’s property: If you end up causing damage while conducting a service visit (even if it was accidental), your business could be financially liable for that damage. Your liability policy can pay out the costs of repairing that damage, as well as any legal fees if you get sued.

  • You cause an accident: Let’s say a customer trips over equipment you left on the floor while working. Without liability insurance, you’d have to directly pay for any resulting medical and legal costs. Fortunately, this type of policy pays those fees for you, up to your coverage limits.

  • You’re accused of slander: If a customer thinks you’ve slandered them - for example, saying something false about them on social media - you could be sued. In this case, your liability insurance can cover legal fees, as well as any resulting payouts if the customer wins the case.

Electricians liability insurance usually doesn’t cover:

  • Employee injuries
  • Tool theft
  • Professional mistakes
  • Legal disputes with employees

Workers Compensation Insurance For Electricians

Another important policy you’ll need is workers compensation insurance. This type of business insurance covers you in case an employee gets sick or injured on the job. Since the nature of your work exposes you and your employees to potential injury, it’s definitely a good policy for your business to have.

Workers compensation insurance may also be legally required as soon as you hire your first employee, so you’ll need this policy to keep your electrician business compliant with both state and federal laws.
