Q: Do I need parents to sign indemnity forms when children are in my arcade area of a restaurant?

I am hiring a space and offering youth a social area. Should parents sign an indemnity?

Will I need to take out 3rd party insurance or will this fall under the establishments insurance?

Thank you!

A: Because of public policy considerations, such agreements (as a general matter nationwide) are not as effective as many people believe. You should consider discussing this in greater detail with your attorney and your insurance broker. The second part of your question could depend on the policy. Good luck

A: Addendum - There was not a state included in your post, but if you are only seeking general guidance at this point from an attorney, they should be in the state where you are operating, or will be operating, the restaurant. Good luck
