General liability insurance for electricians


General liability insurance also known as Commercial General Liability (CGL) protects your construction business from another person or business's claims of bodily injury, associated medical costs and damage to property.


Bodily injury: While re-wiring an office space,  you need to access the wiring to the adjacent space which is occupied. Despite your warnings, someone in the occupied office trips and falls over your equipment . Your electrician insurance  will protect your company by covering the costs associated with the person’s injuries.


Property damage: While installing new electrical wiring in an existing home, your apprentice damages an expensive piece of the customer’s furniture. Electrician insurance  will cover the subsequent claim up to your General Liability policy's limits of liability.


Personal injury: One of your employees is at lunch. He talks to the owner of the shop about one of your clients in a false and unflattering way. The client learns of this discussion and sues for slander. We will cover the subsequent claim, up to your General Liability policy's limits of liability, and pay for an attorney to defend you if necessary.
