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.

What types of coverage do Virginia electricians need?

There are several types of insurance you can choose from as an electrician. BizInsure offers a range of insurance options for electricians at affordable costs.

General Liability Insurance

General Liability insurance protects businesses against the risk of customer injury and property damage.

For many electricians it is essential to have this insurance. This protects the electrical contractor against legal action or financial liability arising from accidents. The coverage covers:

  • Damage to third party property
  • Third-party injuries

Business Owner’s policy

Business Owners Policy (BOP) is a combination of policies, combining covers such as General Liability insurance and business personal property coverage, to help protect small businesses from costly interruptions to service.

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.

Insuring Tools and Equipment

The tools and equipment you use to be electricians in Virginia are vital to your success.

You can be financially protected from unexpected incidents with tools and Equipment insurance.

Cyber Liability insurance

Electrical contractors should be aware of cyber security risks. In the modern age data breaches are on the rise.

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.
