The determination of whether someone is in fact an independent contractor - meaning the company's insurance is most likely not available - or whether they are an independent contractor is far beyond simply someone saying they are, or even the terms of the "contract." Such contracts and statements are often misleading and inapplicable and review of many facts and circumstances are needed in order to make the determination.
