10+ Sample Liability Release Forms

Liability Waiver Form is also called a hold harmless agreement. It is an official document signed between two parties who agree to hold each other “not guilty” of any damages, expenses, or personal injuries that arise from their professional partnership. These forms are signed in anticipation of any possible accident or personal injury, and so you will most often encounter these kinds of forms before getting involved in any kind of risky venture.

Perhaps you own an extreme sports enterprise, or perhaps you are merely organizing a field trip. These professional-grade free samples will help you draft your own waivers to keep you from being sued.

When to Use Liability Waivers

You will want your participants to sign a waiver if you are the owner, host, organizer, or sponsor of a risky activity. This will include enterprises such as paintball fields, ice-skating rinks, scuba diving lessons, a marathon for charity, or even a grade-school class field trip.

You do this primarily for 2 practical and legal reasons:

  • To protect yourself from liability (i.e., being sued)
  • To obtain temporary authority to request emergency medical equipment for injured participants (i.e., without being sued for the injury in the first place)

These forms are agreements stating that the participant is making an informed decision about participating despite the explicit risks. This will protect your business from legal action if they then decide to hold you accountable for any injury. Like an Order Form Template, these are agreements for a future scenario. Legal ways to keep your hands clean.

Note: Such a waiver will not help you if the accident had been preventable and was caused due to negligence on your part or that of your business.
