Yes, as the general contractor, you are responsible for the actions of your subcontractors to the owner of the project or for any utility damages. However, you have the right to sue the subcontractor for any money you pay out on it's behalf.
If you refuse to pay and the company sues, you can file a third party complaint against the sub and bring it into the suit as a party.
