    Any Ideas on a waiver?

    by Blackburn » Sun Jun 24, 2012 10:41 pm

    To make a long story short....I have built a 3.5 mile track on our farm for my Son and I to ride, I would like to allow some friends to ride on my property without risking lawsuits or legal battles. I have been searching hold harmless agreements and waivers with mixed results......Any thoughts or ideas welcome

    My advice would be to consult an attourney. I run a private practice track also. It sucks spending the money, but any free advice will be worth what you paid...

    Consult an attourney.
    Tell him what you want.
    Pay an exhorbatant amount of money.
    Make EVERYONE riding at your property sign it.
    Hope you never need it.

    Have fun!

    I agree about talking with an attorney, but these types of documents are pretty standard. Just google "motocross hold harmless agreement" and you can see what the tracks are using.

    Another concern is your homeowner/property insurance. Even if the agreement somehow gets around someone attaching to your liability policy (which it likely won't), if someone does file a claim, covered or not, it may make you un-insurable with your current company (they might drop you). If they do cover a claim and drop you, good luck getting coverage with another company.

    All valid points...I have a waiver/hold harmless agreement I'm comfortable with now and I guess I'll just have to hope for the best.

    Ride at your own risk should be enough.
