A trampoline release of liability waiver includes the dangers of using the trampoline and an acknowledgement that the user understands the danger but still wishes to use the trampoline, says Liability Waiver. The individual at risk needs to sign the waiver in order for the wavier to be effective.
Common injuries sustained because of trampoline use include colliding with another user, landing improperly while doing stunts or jumping, falling off the trampoline, or falling on the springs or frame of the trampoline, says All Law. When people are hurt using trampolines, the homeowner may be held liable. Homeowners have a duty to make sure that the trampoline is in good condition and is being used properly. When the homeowner fails to take those steps, they have breached their legal duty.
If homeowners have the parents of children using the trampoline sign a release of liability waiver, it does not excuse the homeowner from their legal duty to keep the trampoline safe and make sure children are using the equipment properly, says The Leavitt Group. There are many available release of liability waivers on the Internet, but homeowners should consult with an attorney to make sure their waiver stands up to the laws of their particular state.
