Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Personal Injury litigation attorney. Thanks for your question.
The owner generally isn't liable for the injuries to a subcontractor on the premises so long as the property owner does not control the operative details of how the sub-contractor does his work, and so long as the property owner warns the contractor of known dangers he will encounter.
So, there is some risk IF it is alleged that you caused the dangerous condition. Thus, the best thing to do is to have any subcontractor obtain additional insurance naming the general contractor and you (owner) as an additional insured.
