A general liability waiver is designed to protect a business, individual and organization from liability when allowing someone to participate in a dangerous activity. Typically, a person signs a release and waiver before beginning the activity. These forms are available for both minors and adults.
The general liability waiver protects business owners and their profits from lawsuits related to the protected damages. The terms for general liability waivers vary from form to form, but they are designed to address a variety of potential problems that may occur. In a business scenario, they are typically provided for construction projects and other types of employment in which bodily or property injury is a possibility.
