<< First of all, I would not accept liability for anything before an event
occurred. I accept *responsibility* for my plans and specifications and
contend that I am not liable for anything until a court determines liability.
You know what I meant. We're not lawyers. That's why I have chosen to be an
engineer. It goes without saying that one is not liable until a loss has
occurred and he/she is found to be at fault.
I have already informed the architect that I was not interested. I rather do
another project for that same fee knowing it's going to be built once, and I
have a lot of those. :-)
Thanks to all who shared their thoughts.
