    is there any form or something that i can get someone to sign that i will be hiring for about a week, something that waves all liability from me. if they get their toes chopped off, it's their fault. P.S. i will be hiring a person with expierence with equipment. thanks.

    If you are hiring them, they are using their own equipment, and DOING THE WORK AT THEIR OWN alotted time, then they are a contractor. They are required to have their OWN insurance. (I'm willing to bet this isn',t the case, obviously lol). But anyway, yes, you CAN still be held liable if they are not insured also. And you can SURELY be held liable to any damage caused to property, or personal liability of bystanders.
