Thank you for your response. I interpreted the following underlined text:
"...from all claims that may arise from any breach, violation or default by contractor or its employees, agents, representatives, Subcontractors, or Sub subcontractors, or any employees, agents, representatives or contractors of any foregoing, of contractors obligations ..."
to mean that we, as the subcontractor, would be liable for any damages resulting from any breach, violation or default committed by any of the indemnities and not just any breach, violation of default which we committed.
Also, does the following underlined language:
"...of contractors obligations under the contract documents including, without limitation, any violation of any law, statute, ordinance, order, rule or regulation, including, without limitation, any Environmental Law and the Storm Water Requirements".
mean that if any of the indemnities breaks any law, statute, ordinance, etc. that we, as the subcontractor, could be called on to defend and indemnify them even in the absence of any negligence on our part?
Thank you so much for your help. We are a small start up company and can't afford legal counsel at this time. We need this companies business but can't afford to sign a contract that may create uninsurable losses for us as I am pretty sure out E&O insurance policy contains a contractual liability exclusion.
How could we revise this clause to ensure that we indemnify the contractor et al., only to the extent of damages caused by our negligence or the negligence of others for whom we are legally responsible?
