Who needs Electrician Insurance?
Electrician’s insurance provides protection for other types of risks that are commonly faced, such as another person’s claims of bodily injury, personal injury, or property damage. Clients who hire you to do electrical work could sue you for slip-and-fall accidents, home damage, or even slander. This is where Hiscox can step in to help with liability insurance for electricians.
At Hiscox, we understand these risks and customize electrician insurance to fit your specific needs. Electrician’s insurance gives you the confidence you need to perform work while being protected across a spectrum of potential suits against you or your business.
Since electricians often provide additional services to their clients, review the other types of related insurance that we also provide.

General Liability Insurance for Electricians
General liability insurance - sometimes called commercial general liability (CGL)--could protect your business from another person or business’s claims of bodily and personal injury, associated medical costs, and damage to property. It’s important to think about the potential situations that could arise from performing electrical work in a client’s home or business.
While the majority of your jobs will go smoothly and without any issues, getting electrician’s insurance now can prevent headaches and hassles down the road.
- Bodily injury: While re-wiring an office space, you need to access the wiring in the adjacent office. Despite your warnings, someone in the other office trips and falls over your equipment. Your electrician insurance will protect your business for the costs associated with a covered claim for the person’s injuries, up to the policy’s limits of liability.
- Property damage: While drilling into a wall to install a new outlet for a customer, you accidentally hit an existing wire in the wall which sparks a small fire which damages the customer’s house. Electrician insurance could 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 may cover the subsequent claim, up to your general liability policy's limits of liability, and pay for an attorney to defend you if necessary.
Situations like the above are very unfortunate, but they do happen. See how Hiscox can protect you and your business by requesting an insurance quote.
