Montpelier, VT asked in Personal Injury for Vermont

Q: My child takes Learn to Ice Skate lessons at our local rink. We signed a waiver about injuries before the first class,

but my child was later hurt when a hockey player who wasn't supposed to be on ice at the same time as the skating classes hit a puck up and it collided with the side of my child's head. Would this invalidate the waiver so we can sue the rink for medical expenses? This was a scenario that I don't think the waiver was referring to, and I think the rink should pay my child's medical expenses.
