Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
It is possible that you could protect yourself IF you get the flooring contractor to sign a contract that says he's an independent contractor and that he is solely responsible for his employees while working on the job....and that he agrees to indemnify you and hold you harmless for any problems, injuries, claims, etc. that arise during the course of his work on your property.
Other than requiring the contractor to have a bond or liability insurance, that's about the best protection you can get from liability if someone is injured on your property during the course of this work.
If you need anything further, please let me know. Also, please take time to positively rate our conversation so I may receive credit for assisting. Thanks.
