  1. Independent contractors should have their own insurance. If not, you could be responsible, but your homeowner’s insurance may cover you IF they are licensed contractors (as I understand it, homeowners policies will not cover you if you hire unlicensed workers).

    An indemnity agreement… who is indemnifying whom? If it just says “I will not sue you if I get hurt,” it’s not legally valid. I would have to read the paper to know if/how it has any legal effect.

  2. It depends on what caused the accident.
