Indemnity Agreements and Liability Insurance: Protection From Claims Brought by Third Parties

An individual or organization’s risk of being held liable for personal injury or property damage may be shifted to another party who agrees to accept the risk and who holds liability insurance or sufficient assets to back up the acceptance of the risk.
