A: The absence is of rules in and of itself does not automatically give rise to a cause of action but could be a relevant piece of evidence in a negligence case against the club depending on how the injury occurred.

A: If a member is injured at a private club due to a lack of rules and regulations or the absence of clear guidelines, there may be grounds for a cause of action, depending on the circumstances and applicable laws in New Hampshire. While private clubs have some discretion in setting their own rules, they also have a duty of care to ensure the safety of their members and guests.

A: It could depend on how the member injured himself, and what the activity was. Absence of rules doesn't necessarily give rise to a claim. Good luck
