What is Electrician Insurance?

Electrical work is dangerous. Even if you’re highly skilled and experienced, making a mistake that results in personal injury, property damage or fire could happen. And what’s worse, it could lead to a costly lawsuit.

Electrical contractor insurance covers financial losses that could be devastating due to injuries, property damage or other risks associated with the trade.

(Electrical contractor insurance is shorthand for the different types of insurance policies that you may consider to protect your Alabama electrical business.)

Why do electricians need insurance in Alabama?

Working on electrical systems in Alabama can be hazardous, whether you are a residential or commercial electrician. Every electrician faces the risk of fires, injury from live wires and accidental damage to their client’s property.
Business insurance helps Alabama electricians cover the common risks faced by electrical contractors. Without different types of insurance policies, you may be responsible for expensive legal costs, compensation payments, and other unexpected bills that could drain your bank accounts.

What types of insurance do electricians need in Alabama?

There are several types of insurance that you can choose from as an electrical contractor. BizInsure offers electricians a wide range of coverage at affordable rates.

General Liability insurance

General Liability insurance protects your business against bodily injury or property damage lawsuits from outside parties.

This coverage is considered by many to be a basic coverage for electrical contractors. It protects them against lawsuits and other financial liabilities resulting from accidents. This coverage includes:

  • Damage to third-party property
  • Third-party injury

Electrician General Liability insurance provides coverage whether or not a claim is valid.

Business Owner’s Policy

Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) is a convenient and affordable way for small business owners to protect against several of their most common exposures. These policies combine General Liability insurance with other types of coverage, such as business interruption and business property damage.

Professional Liability insurance

Professional Liability insurance protects Alabama businesses against claims of negligence, misrepresentation or mistake, as well as document or paperwork errors.

This coverage, also known as Errors & Omissions (E&O) insurance, protects your business against financial losses resulting from negligence or mistakes made while performing services.

 Professional Liability insurance covers incidents like:

  • Giving incorrect advice to clients about accessibility or other standards in the building
  • Your work has flaws that require the client to pay for new materials or labor
  • A client alleges that you acted negligently, even if though this is untrue

Workers’ Compensation insurance

Workers’ Compensation policy provides protection for Alabama electrical contractors if an employee suffers a work-related illness or injury. Policies commonly cover medical bills, rehabilitation or physical therapy, and lost wages.

Alabama law requires employers with more than five employees to have Workers’ Compensation coverage.

Tools and Equipment insurance

Your tools and equipment as an electrical contractor in Alabama are vital to your success.
Tools and Equipment coverage can protect you financially from unexpected events.

Cyber Liability insurance

Electrical contractors should be aware of cyber security risks. Data breaches are on the rise in our modern world. Cyber Liability insurance helps cover costs related to recovering from a breach of data, including legal fees, credit monitoring for the affected individuals, and notification costs.

How much does electrician insurance cost in Alabama?

Electrical insurance costs in Alabama are affected by a number of factors, including contractual requirements, the number of employees or other exposures related to your job.

A business that has several electricians will pay more for insurance than an electrical contractor who works alone. The cost of insurance for electrical businesses is affected by:

  • Size and revenue of a business
  • Number of employees covered by the policy
  • The types of services offered (i.e., residential or commercial)
  • Location of the business
  • Your claim history
  • Coverage level

awsom service, perfect price and great policy
I have purchased General Liability Insurance for the past 4 years at BizInsure for my wedding videography small business. In these 4 years, it has always been a smooth process.There must've been some sort of technical issue (potentially due to my change in address), so my policy didn't auto-renew. I called Bizinsure and talked to Paulina, who was beyond helpful. She was very polite and explained things very well. One small detail that I can appreciate is that she often said my name, which shows that their customer service is intentional about personalized communication.In just a few minutes, we updated my account + renewed my insurance for a 5th year. I highly recommend Bizinsure!
