What kind of work is being performed? Are you working with a licensed and bonded contractor?
In Illinois if you a hire a licensed and bonded contractor who carries their own insurance and worker's compensation, they are required to maintain their own insurance and would not only be liable for injuries sustained but also for any damages they cause to you property.
Even if they sign the waiver they still could sue if their injury was in some way caused by a dangerous condition on your property. Where is your property located as there may be a requirement that this type of work must be performed by a licensed contractor? I do not want to see you face any personal liability. It is just not worth the risk. Illinois is very strict when it comes to the use of unlicensed contractors and the liability the homeowner can face as well as other potential issues.
