THERE IS A CHARGE OF $7.95 TO OBTAIN AND PRINT THIS DOCUMENT.

However, please feel free to complete or review this Questionnaire and the Summary which will be produced.

This General Waiver and Release is used to release one party, (known as the "Released Party") from liability for claims asserted by another person, whom we can call the "Claiming Party". A General Waiver and Release is often used when the Claiming Party is using the property, equipment or service of the Released Party. For example, the following situations will often require a waiver:

Claiming Party Type of Activity Released Party
School Student Field Trip School District
Water Park Guest Admission and use of Park Park Owner
Parade Participant Using tractor/trailer as a float Truck/Trailor owner
Karate Student Taking martial arts lessons Martial Arts School

As shown, persons or companies that let others use their facilities or services often feel the need to protect themselves against liability, in the event the persons using those facilities hurt themselves in their activities. A waiver, such as this form, will help to insulate the owner from such liability. However, be forewarned that a Waiver is not always 100% effective. Even after having a signed Waiver, the Claiming Party may still sue for damages. The Claiming Party may claim that the waiver is not effective for a variety of reasons; for example, he or she did not understand the waiver, or the waiver was not signed willingly, or he or she did not have legal capacity (i.e., he or she was a minor, or mentally incompetent) when he or she signed.

In general, the more descriptive you are in writing the waiver, the more likely it will be upheld in court. If the person signing is under 18 years old, a waiver is generally not effective unless signed by a parent or guardian.


Note: You do not need to punctuate at the end of your entries. If you do not enter data in a field below, then a blank space will appear in its place on your Waiver and Release form. Use this form if Claiming Party is an adult. If the Claiming Party is a minor and you wish to create a Waiver and Release form, then go to Parental Waiver and Release.
