A: Waivers can be enforceable but it depends on many factors including who signed it, their age, what is being waived, how long before the event it was signed etc....the only way to properly have it analyzed is to bring the waiver to an attorney promptly and remember there are strict time limits you need to keep in mind. Good luck.
