What is Electrician Insurance?

Electrical work can be dangerous. Even if your skills and experience are high, you could make a mistake which results in personal injury, damage to property or fire. It could also lead to an expensive lawsuit.

(Electrical contractor insurance and electrician insurance are shorthand terms for different insurance policies you can consider to protect your West Virginia business.)

What types of insurance do electricians need in West Virginia?

As an electrical contractor, you have a variety of options for insurance. BizInsure provides electricians with a range of coverage options at affordable rates.

General Liability Insurance

Also referred to as Commercial General Liability (CGL) or “slip and fall coverage”, this insurance can protect your business against bodily injury or property damage lawsuits from outside parties.

Many consider this coverage to be the basic coverage for electricians. This coverage protects electrical contractors from lawsuits, and financial liability arising from accidents. This coverage includes:

  • Damage to Third-Party Property
  • Injury to third parties

Business Owner’s Policy

A 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

Also known as Errors and Omissions (E&O) insurance, this type of policy protects your business 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.

Professional Liability Insurance covers incidents such as:

  • Giving clients incorrect advice about accessibility or other standards within the building
  • If your work is flawed, the client will have to pay for additional materials or labor
  • Even if it is not true, a client may claim that you have acted negligently

Workers Compensation Insurance

Workers’ Compensation insurance protects your company and its employees. 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.

Insurance for tools and equipment

As an electrical contractor, your tools and equipment are essential to your success.
You can be financially protected from unplanned events by purchasing Tools and Equipment insurance.

Cyber Liability insurance

Electrical contractors need to be aware of the cyber security risks. In our modern world, data breaches are increasing.

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.

What is the cost of electrician insurance in West Virginia?

Electrical insurance rates in West Virginia can be affected by several factors. These include contractual requirements, employee numbers, and other exposures associated with your job.

Insurance costs for a business with multiple electricians is usually higher than for an electrical contractor working alone. Insurance costs for electrical businesses are affected by:

  • The size and revenue of an enterprise
  • The number of employees covered under the policy
  • What types of services are offered?
  • 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!
