pwelcome back it's ask a lawyer pday here. pan our lawyers michael and pothers are here answering your pquestions until 9:30 this pmorning. pthanks everybody. pthanks for being here as always. pyou guys are calling and a. pyou're taking them on hype. pand going greet. plot of great polls and questions pcoming on. pmichael is with us one of pattorneys that always, loyal. ployal to us always coming in. pand questions every time. pwe have a questions about bounce phounsz, bounce houses. pand for birthday parties for pkids parties and things like pthat. pwe were talking about at pliability, just in case
pand there is an injury. pyou pointed out to me already, pyeah. pthere's a big difference in pwhere the bounce house or ptrampoline, where it is. pwhere it's located, right? pyes, russell. ptypically two typical psituations. pthere's a situation where the arents have a party or some pother kind of get together for ptheir children at their house. pand the bounce house actually pcomes to them. ptransported and put on their roperty. pand constructed on their roperty. pand as far as responsibility pthis, certainly, the company pthat provide the bounce house is presponsible for their product. palso responsible in most cases, pthey are the ones that actually perect and inflate it andout it pin the ground. pso they would certainly be presponsible for that work. pif there was something faulty, pyou know that when the on there pright? p>> okay. pbut, when the bounce house is at pyour house a parent/homeowner
psupervision aspect a lot of pinjuries happen because kids get pa little wild or maybe a little ptoo crazy. psupervision aspect could fall on pthe homeowner. pand sos at homeowner/parent you pcould be responsible for an pinjury in that situation. pnow, the other thing, that phappens a lot is that people phave parties at trampoline pcenters. pfor lack of better term you're pactually going to the business pand taking your the birthday arty or whatever party to the pactual business. pand certainly, in those psituations, then we're talking pabout a business liability that pwould kick in. pand the business owner would be pmore likely responsible for pthose injuries. pnow, in just probably either one pof these cases, someone's going pto have to sign a waiver p>> yes. pthat allow that is child to go pin that bounce house and get on pthat trampoline whatever that pdevice is. pbut you say there's a problem pwith these waivers. pthere is. pand the problem with the waivers
pbusiness. pokay. pthat, that waiver two things pthat usually occur with the pwaiver. pfirst of all, the activity that pactually causes the injury, may pfall outside of the waiver. pokay. pthey've asked waive liability a plot of these situations, it's a arent waiving liability on pbehalf of their child. pwhatever actually occurs may be psomething that falls outside of pthat waiver. pokay. pso that's conduct on behalf of pmaybe one of the employees for pbounce house or bounce center or ptrampoline center. pthat would fall outside outside pof the waiver. pthat wouldn't be under the pwaiver itself. pbut the second issue, and really pbig issue for bounce houses when pyou have parent signing off pliability on behalf of their pchildren, the way the courts phave viewed it traditionally is pthat they can't do that. pthey can't sign off their pliability on behalf of the pchildren on behalf of their pchild. pand the reasoning behind that is pthat the same statute, the same
pthat a parent can sign off pthat a parent can sign off pliability on behalf of their pchild, also says that a parent pcannot accept a settlement pagreement in excess of $15,000 pon behalf of their child. pand so what the courts, how pcourts have looked at it. pthey've gone and ruled in these pcases and said, well, basically pwe don't agree that a parent can pjust sign off and waive any pliability on behalf of their pchild if they, if they can't pactually accept a settlement poffer in excess of $15,000 on pbehalf of that same child. pask so what the courts have done pis they carved out an exception pessentially a public policy pexception which allows waivers pto be upheld in situations where pschool activity or some other pcommunity activity just so that pthose, you know so that parents pwhen they sign off their kid to pdo something with their school pthat waiver could be upheld. pbut if it's a private business pactivity, typically courts have psaid, we're not comfortable with pallowing parent to waive on
pall right. pfake away on this is, check what pyou're getting into. pbefore you do anything. pcertainly read the waiver and pyou know, from the and even if pyou sign a waiver realize that pthere may still be a way of to pgo about getting, getting some pmoney. pgood to see you i'll let you get pback to a lot of calls and lot pof emails coming in about ask a plawyer. pthey are here until 9:30. pso, stay with us. pand ask some questions if you phave them because it's free. phello charley belcher. pgood day to you russell rhodes. pwe're out here inn state fair pand good food and midway really pcelebrates agriculture in state pof florida. pyoung people raising animals, plearning all about just what pmakes our earth go around. pi love it sxend midnight here palso cute. pwe'll meet other ladies and ptheir bunnies we're going to pcheck in with our state pagriculture commissioner and how pabout a baby sheep for you? plook at the baby.
