Customer Question

if im a contracter and someone gets hurt. then the person hurt agrees to settle with the contracter for a sum of money. And also signs a notarized agreement to indemnify and save harmless the llc company and all home owners. from and against all claims, suits, damages, cost and losses resultingfrom, arising out of, or connected with his injury. and he also said he has his own insurance. and agrees that he is a sub contracter paid by the job. is there any thing else that can be done?

Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.

Hi, that depends on the language of the indemnification. If the language clearly states that this is for all injuries stemming from that event, both known and unknown, and that he agrees to hold the parties harmless, then yes, that is the end of it. The reason that this is the end is because if the sub contractor files suit, he would be in breach, and then the contractor and parties who paid can claim breach of contact and pursue therefore becomes expensive and highly unlikely that the sub would be able to obtain more.
