Electrician Insurance in Massachusetts

What is Electrician Insurance?

Electrician insurance policies are package policies specifically designed for electricians. As package insurance policies, they contain several individual policies. The individual policies can often be customized to a particular electrician or electrical company’s needs.

What Businesses in Massachusetts Need Electrician Insurance?

Electrician policies provide coverages that electricians, electrical contractors, and electrical companies in Massachusetts need. Since policies can be customized, they can be adjusted to meet the needs of a sole proprietor who only serves a single city, such as Southampton, MA, or a large company that has locations in many towns & cities in the state.

WHAT COVERAGES DO ELECTRICIAN POLICIES PROVIDE?

Electrician policies provide a number of different coverages, which can vary from one policy to another. Broadly speaking, many of the protections that policies offer can be separated into commercial property coverages and electrician liability insurance coverages. Commercial property coverages generally protect the tools, equipment, and other property that an electrician owns. Electrician liability insurance generally offers coverages that help protect an electrician from liability suits that accuse them of wrongdoing.

Let's talk about what you need!

 Electricians Should Consider The Following:

  • Commercial Property Coverage, which could protect an electrician’s office, equipment, and tools when they’re in storage or at a job site
  • Inland Marine Coverage, which may be required to cover tools and equipment while it’s being taken to and from job sites
  • Equipment Breakdown Coverage, which might help pay for repairs to equipment that breaks down

Some electrician liability insurance coverages that many electricians choose to include in their policies are:

  • General Liability Insurance, which gives broad protections for perils that many businesses are exposed to
  • Errors and Omissions Coverage, which could protect an electrician if they provide bad advice during a consultation service
  • Umbrella Liability Coverage, which is a secondary form of liability coverage that can provide extra protection

Other coverages that electricians frequently need include commercial auto insurance (assuming they drive to and from job sites), workers compensation insurance (which most Massachusetts businesses that have employees are required to maintain), disability insurance (in case they’re unable to work due to an injury), and business interruption insurance (in case a disaster causes a decrease in revenue).

What Types of Incidents Can Electrician Policies Cover?

The exact incidents that an electrician policy covers will depend on what coverages are included in the package policy. With the right coverages in place, a policy might protect an electrician if they:

  • Have tools stolen while at a job site
  • Are in a car accident on the way to or from a job
  • Are shocked and injured while working on a job
  • Make a mistake that leads to an electrical fire
  • Injure someone else or cause property damage while working on a job
