What is Electrician Insurance?

Electricity can be hazardous. You could still make a mistake that leads to personal injury or property damage. And, even more importantly, you could face costly legal action.
Electrical contractor insurance offers financial protection against losses that may be devastating due to accidents, damage to property or other risky situations.

(Electric contractor insurance is the shorthand name for the insurance policies that you might think about protecting your Virginia electrical company.)

Why do Virginia Electricians need insurance?

Electrical systems are a risk in Virginia regardless of whether you work as an electrician for residential use or commercial one. Every electrician is at risk of fires, injury from live wires as well as accidental damages to their client’s property.

Without the various insurance coverage, you could be liable for costly legal costs and other unexpected bills that could take your bank account to the limit.

Professional Liability insurance

Professional Liability, otherwise known as E&O insurance, protects your business against claims of negligence, misrepresentation or mistake, as well as document or paperwork errors.

Professional Liability insurance covers incidents like:

  • Giving incorrect advice to clients about accessibility or other requirements within the building
  • If your work is flawed the client will have to pay for any additional materials or labor
  • The client asserts that you were in error, even though it is false

Workers Compensation Insurance

Workers’ Compensation insurance 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.

Virginia law requires a business with more than two employees to have workers compensation coverage.

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.

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!
