Good advice but bad releases can be found at this website.

The disclaimers at the bottom of the free documents are the most important part; you need YOUR attorney to write your release.

I check out this site for information I can pass on: Sadler Sports & Recreation Insurance. A couple of times a year, I pass on good information. At the same time, all websites (even this one) can pass on bad information and Sadler Sports & Recreation Insurance is no exception. They are offering free releases. Here is the disclaimer.

This is a SAMPLE WAIVER FORM only. Final wording should be as directed by the insured’s counsel, but must observe the principles represented within the above. This form provided courtesy of K&K Insurance Group.

The releases are from K&K Insurance Group. K&K is a great insurance company in the outdoor recreation industry. At the same time, by providing bad releases, they are creating their own claims.

The first release offered is a release for a parent to waive a minor’s claims. That only work in a few states. (See States that allow a parent to sign away a minor’s right to sue.) So in every other state, you need an assumption of risk form. This “release” is not that. In those few states that do accept a release to stop a minor’s claims, this release does not meet the requirements of two of the states.

Neither release has a jurisdiction and venue clause. That would allow the injured plaintiff to bring a suit and argue the lawsuit should be in a state where releases are not supported. (See States that do not Support the Use of a Release.) The adult release also includes a place for a parent to sign for a child. (???)

Find an attorney that knows what you do, understands release law and can write a release for you. If you want to print and hand the attorney, these releases (as a joke) do so. If the attorney uses them…..find another attorney.
