The best thing you can do it get a "get out of jail free card." Have a
lawyer write a release for you as an individual and then one for you
company. Do not relies on a off the shelf document it could have loop
holes that a laymen may not get.  Such as keywords like "whole" and
"reasonable" that can go both ways.

Subject: legal documents

One item constantly facing penetration testers is causing
damage while testing a system. If I am doing a scan for a
company and happen to break something in the process,
depending on whats broke, a company may have quite a
problem with it. Does anyone have any good legal documents
stating this may be the case, release from damage, etc?
