Thanks for reaching out! This seems a bit complicated. I do know that there might be various types of surety bonds that might be of help. You can read up on surety bonds and the different types with our guides on surety bonds (https://fitsmallbusiness.com/what-is-a-surety-bond/) and the 4 types of surety bonds (https://fitsmallbusiness.com/types-of-surety-bonds/).
We also have an article on liability insurance that might be helpful (https://fitsmallbusiness.com/commercial-general-liability-insurance-cgl/).
Ultimately, I’m not sure if an insurance company will insure you for this specific instance since it seems like there is some significant likelihood that you’ll be liable. And if there is an insurance company that will my gut tells me the premiums will be quite high. However, it’s always best to speak with a legal professional (which it sounds like you did) and take their advice.
