Professional Liability Insurance

Professional Liability insurance safeguards Iowa companies against claims of negligence, misrepresentations, or mistakes. Professional Liability claims are typically made by clients who allege some form of financial damage as a result of your services, products or employees.

This insurance coverage, also called Errors & Omissions (E&O), is designed to protect your company from losses that result from mistakes or negligence made during the performance of the services.

Professional Liability insurance protects against a variety of incidents, including:

  • Giving incorrect information to clients about accessibility or other standards of the building
  • If the work you did is not perfect, the client will have to pay for additional material or work.
  • Even if it is not the case, a customer could assert that you acted negligently.

Workers’ Compensation insurance

Workers’ Compensation policy can protect Iowa electrical contractors when a worker is injured or suffers an injury or illness at work. If any of your employees get injured at work or are ill, this type of insurance will cover their medical bills. It will also cover some of their lost income if they’re unable to work because of the injury, as well as rehabilitation or physical therapy to transition the employee back into the workplace.

Iowa law requires employers that employ more than five employees to be covered by Workers’ Comp coverage.

Tools and Equipment insurance

Tools and Equipment coverage protects you from financial loss due to unexpected events, such as equipment breakdown.
