What is a Liability Waiver?

  • Last Updated: ago

Liability Waivers are contracts in which one party releases or waives its right to sue for damages resulting from an identified risk. A local Little League or district should not assume that a waiver will entirely avoid liability. Liability waivers can be used to provide a shield from liability claims or lawsuits for damages from injuries that were caused by negligent acts. The specifics of each liability waiver vary depending on the nature of the business. Relative to the Coronavirus pandemic, waivers have not yet been tested in court for COVID-19-related claims, so it has yet to be determined how effective a COVID-19-specific waiver would be in the event of litigation against a local Little League program.
