Even though a design agreement may otherwise be well-drafted, the indemnification clause will often be confusing, with unnecessary wording. In agreements drafted by the Client, the indemnification clause may require the Engineer to assume unreasonable risk that will not be covered by the Engineer’s professional liability insurance. This webinar will try to reduce the confusion that can arise when trying to decipher the sometimes- very-creative wording of an indemnification clause by taking a step back and looking at what it actually means to indemnify another party. In addition, we will look at how the indemnification clause relates to an Engineer's insurance coverage.
