Carrie L. Christie was published in the March/April 2009 edition of The Georgia Contractor magazine. The article, “Supreme Court Upholds Doctrine Impacting Contractors’ Liability,” explains the effects of the high court’s decision on contractors in Georgia. Click here to read the complete article.
As Ms. Christie recommends in her article, “Attorneys should advise their contractor clients to be cautious about entering into contractual agreements that require the contractor to retain sole liability for all negligence, which could be construed as a waiver of the acceptance doctrine. While obligations to defend, indemnify, or hold harmless an owner or government entity are standard, attorneys should advise Georgia contractors to limit such obligations to defend, indemnify and hold harmless the owner if the owner is sued.”
The Georgia Contractor is published bi-monthly, and is designed around the construction industry associations and their members. For more information, visit them online atwww.thegeorgiacontractor.com.
