Waivers

A legal waiver occurs when someone gives up their right to something. They are often used as a means of protecting the business from some type of liability. They are often used by businesses in recreational settings, travel, with sports teams or events like fairs and festivals.

Do You Need A Hold Harmless Or Release Of Liability?

Waivers can go by a variety of names, including:

  • Liability waiver
  • Hold harmless clause
  • Release of liability
  • Exculpatory clause

To be enforceable, they must be properly drafted and correctly executed. Simply printing a form from the internet may not be enough to protect your business from lawsuits and liability.

Have An Experienced Lawyer Draft Your Waiver

At Havner Legal Services on the Go, we can help you or your business obtain a waiver that meets your needs and is enforceable. For a waiver to be effective, the party waiving their rights must understand the risks and what they are waiving. A misleading or incomplete description of the risk may leave the waiver open to question and allow expensive litigation.

Our attorney can help protect your business by carefully assessing the risks and putting together a waiver that is valid and enforceable. There are limits on what can be waived. For instance, you cannot protect against your own negligence with a waiver.
