Should you ever sign a waiver related to your risk of exposure to COVID-19?
The Doctors welcome attorney Carissa Kranz to discuss how places like salons, sports leagues, resorts, schools, workplaces, and amusement parks are asking patrons to sign away their rights -- but is this a good idea?
The legal expert weighs in telling Dr. Ian Smith someone could still decide to sue if they contracted the virus at one of these establishments, but the waiver could make winning the case much more difficult. She explains if there is an incident of gross negligence -- which is a conscious, voluntary act or omission in reckless disregard of a legal duty and of the consequences to another party -- someone infected would have a much stronger case.
She says before signing one of these waivers, make sure to:
- Determine if the waiver is simple, clear, and understandable
- Be vigilant about researching the business or locale the waiver is covering and determine if safety guidelines are being followed
- Ask yourself is this a service I need or a service I want? Carissa says if it is a service you want -- like an amusement park -- she says the waiver is likely to be more enforceable
