What is Electrician Insurance?

Electrical work can be dangerous. Even if your abilities and experience are high, you could make a mistake which could result in personal injury or fire damage, as well as property damage. The possibility of a lawsuit can cost you money.

The insurance of electrical contractors covers financial loss that can be devastating in the event of injuries, damages to property or any other risks in the business.

Why is insurance important for electricians in South Dakota?

It’s risky to work on electrical systems, whether you’re a residential or commercial electrician in South Dakota. Every electrician is exposed to fire hazards and injuries that can be caused by live wires.

South Dakota electricians can benefit from business insurance to cover the most common risks. Without the various insurance policies, you could be liable for expensive legal fees as well as compensation and other expenses that can take your bank account to the limit.

What types of insurance do South Dakota electricians need?

As an electrician, you have a variety of options for insurance. BizInsure offers a wide selection of electricians’ insurance.

General Liability Insurance

A General liability insurance can protect you against any claim by an outside party regarding injury or damage to their property. In these instances, your policy will cover your legal expenses as well as your cost to replace or remedy the situation up to the limits of liability.

The coverage is regarded by many to be a basic insurance for electricians. It shields them from lawsuits and other financial liabilities that may result from accidents. The insurance covers the following:

  • Property damage to third party property
  • Third-party injury

Business Owner’s policy

Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) is a convenient package of insurance that protects your business against the common risks it faces every day. The BOP product includes various coverages that may suit the unique requirements of your small business. Insurance included in a BOP can vary but usually they include protection for typical small business risks such as property damage, business interruption and liability.

Professional Liability insurance

A Professional Liability insurance policy (also known as Errors and Omissions or E&O insurance) is an essential policy that protects you and your company in case of a lawsuit due to alleged professional wrongdoing.

Professional Liability insurance protects incidents like:

  • Giving incorrect information to clients about accessibility or other requirements of the building
  • If your work is flawed the client will have to pay for additional material or work
  • Customers may accuse you of negligence even when it’s not true

Workers Compensation Insurance

A Workers’ Compensation policy protects you against medical expenses and lawsuits that can arise from employee workplace injuries and illnesses. It could also pay lost wages as a result of the work injuries that an employee sustains.

Tools and equipment insurance

Your tools and equipment as an electrical contractor in South Dakota are vital to your success.

The policy on Tools and Equipment will provide financial protection against unexpected circumstances.

Cyber Liability insurance

Electrical contractors need to be aware of the cybersecurity risks. Data security breaches are increasing in the modern age.

Cyber Liability insurance protects your business against malicious software attacks, data breaches, viruses, and phishing. It also covers legal fees, notifying customers of a breach, credit monitoring, and fines that your company may be ordered pay. This coverage also applies to Personally Identifiable Information (aka Non-Public Information) such as names, addresses, phone numbers, social security numbers, credit card and banking info, email addresses, etc.

How much does electricians insurance cost in South Dakota?

The cost of electrical insurance in South Dakota depends on a variety of variables, including the contractual requirements of your company as well as the number and kind of employees you have, and any other exposures to which your business is exposed.

A business that has several electricians pays more for insurance than a single electrical contractor. The cost of electrical business insurance is affected by:

  • The size and revenue of an enterprise
  • Number of employees covered
  • The kind of service provided (residential, commercial or both)
  • Business location
  • Your claim history
  • Coverage level
