I understand that losses that occur on the subject property
can be sometimes under limited circumstances be claimed against the homeowner, I understand that the Agent,Bank or Broker,Investor etc. can also assume some liability. However I do not see a scenario where the main contractor would be liable for something falling off the truck of one of his subs on a public roadway. I will try to find a case that proves me wrong, your example of the property owner being responsible for those he allows on the property,or in some states even trespassers. is not at all an example of the case in point.
Note: we are not talking about transportation/cargo/heavy hauling type contracts. That is also something else.
