Electrician Liability Insurance
Are you an electrician contractor? Are you wondering whether or not you should buy liability insurance? The answer is absolutely yes. Liability insurance can give you the peace of mind you need and provide you a broad range of protection. Imagine this scenario: you have a new client for whom you updated their electrical system throughout their house. A few days later, the home catches fire and burns to the ground. The family is left homeless; who do you think they are going to go after? If you do not have insurance, you could be left penniless. Here are few reasons why you must get a liability insurance for you and your electrical business.
1- The chances of getting sued have increased dramatically in the last decade. Even if you know you are not at fault you will incur legal fees, and risk ruining your reputation that you worked so hard to build.
2- When you have liability insurance, you are protected against personal injury claims and medical expenses.
3- You are protected against property damage, both physical damage and loss of use.
4- You are protected from contractual liability; any liability you may assume by entering into a variety of contracts.
5- Not only is your business protected, but your physical location is protected as well. If someone slips and falls outside of your establishment, you're covered.
If you do not have liability insurance you could not only potentially lose your business, you could lose your home, your assets, and your reputation. You may incur thousands of dollars in legal costs and if you need to pay medical costs, that figure could jump dramatically. You could find yourself bankrupt and destitute - all because you wanted to save a few dollars every month on an insurance premium. Hopefully you will never need to use your insurance, but if you do you'll know you're covered.
