In today’s world, consumers are often presented with a waiver they must sign before they are allowed to engage in certain recreational activities—from rock climbing facilities to paintball courses to trampoline parks, businesses use waivers in an attempt to shield themselves from liability if patrons are injured on their property.
Unsurprisingly, injuries often occur in these facilities due to the negligence of those running the business. When the injured parties try to enforce their rights and to hold the facility accountable, an argument is made that the waiver bars any recovery. Whether or not the waiver has any legal effect on your ability to bring a claim depends on a case specific, fact sensitive analysis and many times these waivers are not enforceable.
