General Liability

Protection for the injuries, accidents and damage you cause
General liability insurance for electrical contractors covers a wide range of accidents and basic risks. With electrician liability insurance, you’ll have financial protection if someone other than an employee gets hurt or you are held responsible for damaging property that doesn’t belong to you. General liability might be required for an electrician license in your state, and it’s common for clients to ask for proof of coverage. General liability includes contractors’ E&O, or professional liability coverage, which can help cover costs in a business disagreement.

Medical payments
Property damage
Legal fees and judgments
Contractors’ E&O

Electrician insurance requirements

Electrician insurance requirements

Electricians are often required to have insurance due to the risk of injury and property damage while working on residential and commercial projects. You might need insurance to:

  • Get an electrician license in your state.
  • Start work on a project. Clients might ask you to have active insurance — usually general liability or workers’ compensation — before you can work at their property.
  • Drive for business purposes. Business-owned vehicles typically need commercial auto insurance and personal auto policies might not cover business driving.
  • Hire employees or subcontractors. Most states require workers’ compensation.
  • Repair or replace property you own or rent. Protect your inventory, equipment and even the building that you lease or own.

Frequently asked questions about business insurance

Here are some of the most common questions we get about electrician insurance. If you don’t find the answers you need here, our licensed, U.S.-based insurance advisors are standing by to help via online chat or phone.

How does business insurance protect electricians?

Our electrician business insurance packages are designed to protect your business from a variety of risks and help you save money to grow your business. If you’re an insured electrician, you’ll be protected from financial losses related to:

Damage to someone’s property

You accidentally cause damage to an expensive painting while running conduit through a wall. The general liability coverage in your insurance package would help pay to repair the damage.

Accidents that hurt someone

A client doesn’t see your pile of wires and falls over, hurting an ankle. Your general liability insurance would also come into play here by helping to pay for medical costs and legal fees if you go to court.

Professional mistakes

A property manager accuses you of damaging the main circuit breaker. E&O coverage helps you defend yourself if you’re accused of making a mistake that causes someone to lose money.

Workplace injuries

You accidentally touch energized electrical wiring and burn your hand. Workers’ compensation coverage can help cover medical bills and lost wages — not to mention it’s usually required by law if you have employees.

Injuries and damage involving your business vehicles

You drive over a huge pothole on the way to a job site and destroy both front rims. Commercial auto coverage will help pay for the repairs. This coverage is also usually required by law for business-owned vehicles.

Theft or damage to your tools

You left your van full of supplies at a work site and someone broke into it. You can choose to add tools and equipment insurance to your general liability coverage to help pay for replacement costs.

Damage to your own property

A plumbing issue causes water damage in your office space. Commercial property insurance can help with replacement or repair costs if your owned or leased property is damaged due to a covered event, such as a burst water pipe, fire, tornado or vandalism.
