When to Use Hold Harmless Agreements

Business partners sign hold harmless contracts to limit each other’s legal liabilities. This might apply to one or both of the parties, but they will have to define the circumstances under which the other party will not sue.

From perusing these samples, you can see that hold harmless agreements are mostly used in these situations:

  • someone is using property you own and you want to be protected from damages and liabilities
  • someone is providing you with a service and you want to be protected from liabilities if someone is harmed
  • you are participating in an event hosted by the other party and they want to be protected from liability if you are harmed
  • you want to protect someone else (an employee, etc.) who might be sued because of your business activity

This agreement is also called a “waiver” or a “waiver of liability.” Most people will encounter this at sporting centers and with schools sending young children on field trips.
