San Francisco Sports Injuries Lawyer
Your Decision to Participate in a Sport Does Not Excuse Negligence
You chose to participate in a sport or recreational activity and you signed a waiver of liability. You understood there was some risk of injury … what you didn't expect was that the coach, the teacher, the property owner, or the equipment manufacturer was going to increase your risk by being negligent themselves.
Did You Sign a Release or Waiver?
Just because you signed a waiver of liability or a release form given to you by the owner of a ski resort, motocross or offroad bike track, or the facility that rented you a jet ski or snowboard, that does not mean the form is legally binding in all cases. The terms of the release may be unfair and unenforceable. The actions of the company may be grossly negligent or reckless.
The assumption that a waiver always trumps the responsibility of a negligent party is wrong. You have rights and those rights need protection. If you suffered a sports and recreation injury, you may be able to hold the negligent party financially accountable.
