Premises injuries and liability waivers

Liability waivers appear in a number of different situations. For example, parents must often sign such a waiver before their child can participate in a field trip. Many day care businesses also mandate that parents sign a liability waiver before their child can attend. Gyms and fitness centers also rely on liability waivers to prevent customers from pursuing a premises liability claim if they suffer injuries while working out.

Our staff members agree that premises liability waivers fill an important role in preventing frivolous lawsuits. On the other hand, we think you should know that you could still seek a legal remedy if an injury occurs because of negligence.

For example, say your child goes on a field trip with his or her class. The person or people responsible for the children have a duty to protect them and look after them. If the supervisor leaves the children unattended and your child suffers an injury, the liability waiver you signed may not protect the person in charge.

In other words, you may still seek legal action in many cases. If the school employee is found negligent, you could pursue an action against the school and/or the employee. You may also be able to file a premises liability claim against the owner of the property where the injury occurred.

The main point we hope to convey is that you might still have options for a legal remedy in spite of any liability waiver you signed. Each case is unique, but a personal injury attorney can help you identify whether or not you have grounds to move forward.
