What does indemnification mean?

What does indemnification mean?

Law Firm serving Stuart, Port St. Lucie and Jupiter FL

Indemnification is not a term to be taken lightly in a contract.  When one party indemnifies another, they are agreeing to compensate or guaranteeing against the loss of another party.  In layman’s terms, the person indemnifying is agreeing to pay for or cover the losses of the party they are indemnifying.  Indemnification is a method of shifting the risk associated with a contractual relationship.  It is very important to understand the context of how the term is used in a contract to fully evaluate the potential exposure when entering the agreement.

Know what you are agreeing to before you agree to it.  Indemnification is not just a big legal word.  It carries huge potential implications.  If you are negotiating a contract or are co-signing an agreement as a guarantor, or entering a lease, or any other agreement, it would behoove you to contact a lawyer to review it before you sign.  After you have signed it, it is too late.  You have already agreed to the terms.

If you need lawyer to review or help negotiate a contract in Stuart, Port St. Lucie or Jupiter FL, please give my office a call.

Slip and Fall Lawyer Stuart FL

Slip and Fall Lawyer Stuart FL

Slip, Trip and Fall Hazards


It is important to understand how these incidents arise, whether there exists a duty, and have you been injured.  There is also the issue of comparative negligence.  If you are careless or knowingly place yourself in a potentially dangerous situation, you may not be entitled to recover compensation for your injuries.  Slip, trip and fall hazards can be very involved.  They are subject to the situation at that specific time.  Videos, witnesses, reports, and conditions are integral in providing supporting evidence for your case.

Often someone will trip on something or slip on a wet surface and, because of their embarrassment, convince themselves it was due to their own lack of coordination.  There is this inherent misconception.  Usually, there is an underlying cause to which you may or may not have contributed.  A wet floor, an uneven surface, or some other anomaly may have contributed to or caused your fall.

Whether or not the property owner knew or should have known about the potential slip, trip and fall hazard is another issue.  Was there a duty?  Did the owner have reason to know or should have known about the potential hazard?  Is there more than one party responsible for the maintenance of the location where you fell?  These are questions of law.

If the incident was simply a stumble and the individual regained their balance, there are no injuries and therefore, no damages.  However, if you fell and it resulted in an injury, you could be incapacitated and require medical attention.

If your case meets these criteria, you could be awarded monetary damages for your injuries which could include compensation for medical costs, lost wages, permanent disability, emotional distress and other damages directly related to your injury.

If you or a loved one has been injured as the result of a slip, trip and fall and need a zealous advocate in your corner, give me a call.  My name is Randy Fischer of Randall A. Fischer, P.A.  I am a Lawyer with offices, in Stuart, Port St. Lucie, and Jupiter Florida.
