Additional Information

Anti-indemnity statutes may prohibit the transfer of some or all liability attributable to the transferor's negligence. In some states, anti-indemnity statutes also limit the ability of one contracting party to require additional insured coverage under the other party's insurance policies that would apply to liabilities that cannot legally be transferred in the indemnity agreement. Anti-indemnity statutes are commonly used to regulate the risk transfer provisions in specific types of contracts including construction, energy, and transportation contracts.
