Overcoming A Florida Liability Waiver
It is hard to avoid liability waivers, almost all service providers and establishments have them now, from gyms and movie theaters to hotels and catering companies. Even if you wanted to avoid contracting with any establishment that required you to agree to a liability waiver, you probably could not. Many venues, particularly ticketed venues, like concert halls and theme parks, have liability agreements that you implicitly agree to by virtue of buying the ticket and attending the event. In many cases, people do not truly confront the terms of a liability waiver until a injury has occurred, and they are encountering it as a roadblock.
Understanding Liability Waivers
Liability waivers are often long and complex and can feel like an impossible amount of red tape. However, just because a company puts it in writing that they are not liable for any injuries, does not mean it is true. Companies still owe their clients a reasonable standard of care, regardless of what they put in writing. It likely is not possible for companies to absolve themselves of illegal negligence or recklessness in writing. For this reason, if you have been injured and are dealing with a liability waiver that feels like a dead-end, it is important not to give up hope. Instead, consult with an experienced Florida personal injury attorney in order to determine whether the liability waiver can be challenged or overturned.
