What state are you in?

Were you incorporated, or a limited liability company, or another business form?

Did you have commercial general liability (CGL) insurance?

Hi many thanks for your response and in reply I was a sole trader and I had public liabilty ? unsure if that same as what you are asking?
These accusations come approx 18months from time of doing the job whilst the person is now takng me to court he knows that I have not traded since his job due to ill health.
His claims are to rectify and they are very steeply priced and I feel as though I am being backed into a corner as money is now very tight and I am not in a position if it deemed to be faulty to rectify myself.
Your advise therefore would be greatly appreciated.
