Legal Question in Insurance Law in Colorado

hold harmless agreement

I am an artist who has a commission for a public art project.

I am preparing to sign a contract with my client on Thursday

Oct.14th. The sculpture I am creating will be suspended in a lobby.

If the piece should ever fall apart and injure someone can my

client come after me? If so can where can I find a form called Hold

Harmless agreement to put in the contract. If they will not sign

such an agreement what should I do to protect myself?

thank you.

Re: hold harmless agreement

Since you are asking this question the day before you are to sign, you need to contact a business lawyer - or a very good insurance broker - immediately. Yes, you are subject to suit if a problem occurs, as I am assuming you are responsible to mount the sculpture in addition to creating it.

You might be able to be named as an additional insured under the client's liability policies - and if so, by endorsement only, and continuously (not just for one year).

This matter is easily handled if you have professionals who know what they are doing.
