That does not however prevent that person, their family or their lawyer from suing you for their medical expenses and long term care.
B. Liability Insurance: Is necessary if the Contractor damages your home or your neighbors. For instance, the Contractors ladder tips over and goes thru your $3,000.00 front picture window or your neighbors car window and paint job.
