Liability waivers are release forms, are legally binding documents. A participant, such as a customer or an employee, signs the form and accepts risk, and agrees to waive the company’s liability for damages associated with inherent dangers. The limitation of liability insulates the company from civil damages if the participant suffers from losses or injuries.
Who uses a Liability waiver form?
Some business owners post signs warning of specific dangers or stating that they're not liable for injuries or damage sustained by visitors on the premises. These signs are used in the hopes to prevent lawsuits, but they can have little legal effect. They can use liability waiver or release forms instead of these tactics to ensure that a customer acknowledges in writing that they understand the risks and that they agree to accept them. The customer also waives their right to sue your business for injuries sustained from the activity.
It's good to point out that customers who have signed a waiver can still file an insurance claim. Also, lawsuits can arise from activities or accidents not covered by the waiver.
What you can do if a customer won't sign? You can deny the customer or participant the ability to engage in an activity if they won't sign a release. You can feel free to protect yourself and turn them away. Just be clear that you're doing so because they're unwilling to sign the form.
