I'm not sure if Personal Injury is the correct category. I plan to be away for an extended time and a friend will be using my house as a stop-off during work appointments and an occasional overnight. She has agreed that she is responsible for any problem during her stay, whether it be injury to her or breakage of my possessions. She is someone I trust obviously, or I wouldn't be providing a key to my house. Like a request for a pre-nup to a bright-eyed future bride, I'm uncomfortable asking for her assurances in writing. Should I be concerned? Do I need something legal -- just in case?
Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Personal Injury litigation attorney. Thanks for your question.

It's not necessary to have an agreement in writing in order to protect your property and also to have a right to recover against your friend in the event that property is damaged, etc.

If your property is damaged by your friend, you would have the right to recover from him/her and/or sue if necessary.
