Definition - What does Indemnification mean?

The term indemnification can be defined in simple terms as the act of compensating a party for damage or a loss that occurred. It is an act that provides a guarantee to a party to cover a future loss or damage. One common example of Indemnification is when an insurance company pays for the damages to a property that was covered by the insurance company.
