General Liability Insurance for Electricians

General Liability insurance can protect electricians against third-party claims regarding bodily injury or property damage. In these instances, a policy will cover your legal expenses, as well as the cost to replace or remedy the situation, up to the limits of liability. General Liability insurance is also sold as Commercial General Liability (CGL) or “slip and fall coverage”, and may be required by your clients, other businesses, or commercial landlords as a condition of working with them.

Why do Electricians need General Liability Insurance?

Electricians complete vital and complex work for their clients and customers. Not only are you providing an important service, but you must also be mindful of the fundamental dangers of electrical systems.

Of course, these aren’t the only risks that electrical contractors may face while on the job. You routinely work at your clients’ premises or in other third-party locations. What if you accidentally damage a client’s property while working in their building? Or a third party injures themselves due to your negligence? It might cost you thousands of dollars to fix the situation—money that many small business owners do not have just lying around.

This is where General Liability insurance comes in. Electricians with these policies can rest easy knowing that the burden of legal expenses and compensating the injured party is off their shoulders. The cost of general liability claims can be staggering, enough to force you into bankruptcy or even put you out of business. Instead of paying these expenses out of your own pocket, your General Liability policy will help cover the costs associated with the claim.

What does Electrician’s General Liability Insurance cover?

General Liability insurance for electricians covers common risks faced by businesses that provide physical services to the public. This typically includes:

  • Third-party property damage
  • Injury suffered by a third-party


Importantly, Electrician Liability insurance provides coverage regardless of whether a claim has merit or not. Even baseless claims can be expensive to resolve, so having this protection in place can give you extra peace of mind while you work.

What is not covered by Electrician’s General Liability Insurance?

General Liability insurance for electricians typically does not provide coverage for:

  • Employee injuries or if you are injured on the job
  • Theft or damage to your own property, including tools


Additional forms of insurance (such as Worker’s Compensation, Professional Liability, or Contractor’s Tool and Equipment Insurance) may be available to cover these and other events that electricians might encounter in the course of their work.

Claims examples*

Could this happen to you? General Liability insurance for electricians could help protect your business from claims like these:

Accidental third-party property damage: You’re walking back to your truck after finishing on-site work and accidentally knock over a custom windowpane. It immediately breaks, and the property owner demands you pay for the broken glass, plus additional money for expedited delivery of a replacement. A General Liability insurance policy will cover their claim, up to your limits of liability.

Third-party injury/Medical expenses: A client accidentally trips over your tool bag on their way to review your work. They suffer a serious cut as a result and must go to the hospital for stitches. General Liability insurance will help cover medical expenses caused by the accident regardless of fault.

How much does General Liability Insurance for electrical contractors cost?

Electricians Insurance can vary in cost, depending on the specific makeup and needs of your business. Insurers consider a variety of factors when calculating your premium, and the amount you pay may differ from other electricians.

The cost of General Liability insurance for electrical contractors may depend on:

  • Your qualifications or experience as an electrician
  • The size and annual turnover of your business
  • Your history of past insurance claims

Frequently Asked Questions

Is business insurance for electricians required by law?

General Liability insurance is typically not required by law for electricians. However, the State Contractor’s Licensing Board, your clients, and other members of the public that you work with may require that you have a policy.

Many clients expect electrical contractors to have a General Liability policy. If you work as a subcontractor for another business, they may require proof of your insurance before you can begin working with them. Additionally, commercial landlords may require you to have General Liability insurance before they will lease office or other commercial space to you.

Other insurance for electrical contractors, such as Worker’s Compensation, may be required by law in some states. Check with your local or state licensing board to understand what types of insurance are necessary for electricians in your area.

BizInsure has really come through for me on some really hard to place risks. Andrew takes the time to understand the risk and work through how we can make it work, rather than looking for ways to say no. Thank you for your help!

I have been shopping for business liability insurance for several months. I am happy to share that BizInsure ranked #1! The representatives were polite, patient, and empathetic. They accomplished what most companies struggle with achieving: they did what they said they were going to do, they were on time, and they had empathy. They delivered a policy for 25% less than the closest competetor, and even included $50k of cyber security at no additional cost! I only write reviews when I receive exceptional experiences- highly revommended; keep up the great service BizInsure!P.S. I own a professional referral service in Hawai'i and I am going to see if BizInsure offers an affiliate program.Aloha!

I had numerous conversations with several business insurance agents over a month's time. I also had several conversations confirming the policy inclusion/exclusions and asked many questions. My BizInsure agent was professional, knowledgeable and most important—detail oriented. Even after having an initial conversation a month earlier he knew and *remembered* all my personal/professional insurance needs. When I asked for additional information on the third call he was able to provide me with details very quickly. He was also VERY patient. That is a big plus in my opinion. It illustrated a high level of respect for my needs. I also found when I called back and asked to talk with the initial agent, the person who answered the call was able to get in contact quickly and my agent responded and returned the call within 5-10 minutes. The transaction was smooth, and I think it's a good sign should I ever need to make a claim. I highly recommend BizInsure.

The customer service provided by Jose was outstanding. He explained everything in a very clear/logical way and answered all of my questions. After providing all the information to obtain general liability insurance, Jose sent me the declaration page of the insurance for review. All of the information matched what I provided over the phone and there were no typos. The next day I called back to purchase the insurance which was easy and fast. Overall, my experience with BizInsure including the customer service by Jose exceeded my expectations.
