My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: CA
I hired a contractor a few years ago to do odd jobs around my house. At the time I hired him he was licensed. I never checked to make sure he stayed licensed over the years that he's continued with us. Today he was installing a shower door in my bathroom, the glass exploded (he said the cause was a scratch in the glass, i wasn't home to see it ...). He was kneeling on the ground when the glass broke, it landed hard on his shoulder and rained glass all around him. He had small cuts all over his arms, legs, neck and head. His assistant quickly cleaned up, I paid him for the day, and he left. I checked his license tonight and see it was suspended because of a bond issue last year. I emailed him tonight to make sure he's OK. After that, my concern lies in the damage the glass caused (chipped newly installed toilet and newly installed shower base, and I need a new door - from Canada!). Can he sue me for getting hurt on the job? Who would normally pay to repair damage (assuming license in place) him, me, homeowners insurance?
