/PRNewswire/ -- We've all seen the signs in parking lots and the waivers on the back of tickets to sporting events that begin "We are not responsible…" However, the Law Offices of Burg and Brock, home of
Los Angeles injury lawyer
Cameron Yadidi Brock
, is here to tell you that, in the event a business or organization is grossly negligent or places members of the public in danger, such disclaimers are of extremely limited legal value or none at all. No statement printed on a sign or the back of a ticket can negate any and all responsibility.
As a highly respected specialist,
Los Angeles personal injury lawyer
Cameron Yadidi Brock
has dealt with countless legal claims over the years. He and his outstanding
personal injury law firm
understand the vagaries of law and how to make at-fault parties responsible for their negligence, when negligence can be proven. While disclaimers and waivers often successfully discourage frivolous lawsuits, they should not discourage anyone with a legitimate claim from seeking compensation.
For example, someone who sustains an injury in a parking lot on account of a pothole or other hazard might easily misunderstand a sign saying the lot is not responsible for damage to assume they have no legal standing on which to sue, even though the sign's content really only relates to damage to parked automobiles, not injuries to people in moving vehicles. In a case where someone has been seriously harmed, perhaps even disabled, by an injury that is entirely or partly the fault of the business in question, this can be a misunderstanding with tragic consequences.
All business have a basic responsibility to do whatever they can to prevent undue injury to both customers and employees, even when the purchase of a ticket to an event is assumed to include the acceptance of a certain degree of responsibility. For example, lawsuits appear to be ensuing in the wake of accident at
's Daytona International Speedway that injured three spectators. In another recent case, a fan who lost an eye at a minor league baseball game in
is being allowed to present his case before a jury. In both of these instances, responsibility for injury was presumably waived because of statements on the back of event tickets.
