My child attended a sports camp and was injured while at the camp. I signed a waiver of liability before my child joined the camp. What are my child's rights?

 

A: Under Pennsylvania law, waivers of liability are not enforced against minors.  Thus a minor's claim for negligence against a camp, school or other type of recreational program will be allowed to continue, regardless of whether the minor signed the form or not.  However, if a parent signs the form, any claim the parent may have against the camp, school, etc., will in most cases, be barred.
