Within the financial world, numerous risks can destroy not only a business but the legacy the owners try to create throughout their lives. To prevent this from happing, the use of indemnity agreement was introduced.


An indemnity agreement is a type of contract between parties that protects a party from liability or burden in the event of damage or loss of property or money. This contract is put in place to protect a particular party from burden in high-risk situations. Without an indemnity agreement, a party to an agreement or contract must pay compensation for any loss. Indemnity agreement can sometimes extend to medical care, which exempts healthcare personnel from liability in the event of disability or loss of life in high-risk circumstances.

Indemnity Agreement Uses

An indemnity agreement can be used for several purposes. These uses are highlighted below.

  • It is used in the construction industry to protect contractors in the event of damage in high-risk locations.
  • Companies that give individuals access to rental cars use indemnity agreements to prevent liability in the event of a car accident.
  • Individuals that participate in dangerous activities such as riding rollercoasters in an amusement center may be required to sign such agreements to protect the business in case of an injury.
  • As stated earlier, such agreements are used in medical procedures that have a low chance of success.
  • It is also used to protect tenants from liability if a tenant gets injured within a rented property.

However, when a person gets injured or property gets damaged due to negligence, an indemnity agreement will not protect an individual that hopes to prevent liability.

The fields of an Indemnity Agreement

Like all other contracts, an indemnity agreement has several fields. These fields are discussed below.

  • The fields for the name and address of the person who requires protection. This person is referred to as an indemnitee.
  • The field for the name and address of that person who promises to not collect compensation from the indemnitee. This person is referred to as an indemnifier.
  • The date the agreement was signed.
  • Fields for the indemnitee and indemnifier to append their signatures.
