A Hold-Harmless Agreement (also known as an Indemnity Agreement) allows one party to protect another party against future losses or claims resulting from a particular activity. An Indemnity Agreement is where a person indemnifies another person or promises to reimburse \ for any damages. In signing such a clause, the other party accepts responsibility for particular risks involved in contracting for the service.
Even if it wasn’t the fault of a specific party, that party might still be obligated to pay damages. Therefore, it is essential to understand the pros and cons of a Hold- Harmless Agreement before entering into this type of contractual relationship.
