Negligence overrides disclaimers 💙
We've all seen or been asked to sign a disclaimer at some point, maybe before competing in a dangerous sporting activity or when entering a venue which states it does not accept liability for any injury, loss or damage.
Disclaimers are designed to make people aware of the risks of injury, but their presence does not absolve owners or organisations from being held liable in certain circumstances.
Negligence will always override a disclaimer and they cannot be used by businesses to absolve themselves of their responsibility for health and safety.
If in doubt, give us a call.
Choose the one you know, Atha & Co. 🤝
