This can work either way, neither approach is guaranteed.  I was sued a
few years ago for a mistake the Architect made.  In the final settlement
conference the judge agreed that I was not responsible, but suggested
that since I had insurance and the Architect didn't, I should "help
out". My carrier settled for an amount about equal to what it would have
cost to go to court.  I had no say in the settlement.
