Springfield, PA asked in Contracts, Products Liability, Wrongful Death and Personal Injury

Q: How do I eliminate any personal liability when donating hearing aids, rollators, braces, BP monitors, etc? Thanks.

I am an individual wishing to donate items at no cost to individuals and organiztions in need. These items were provided to me new for me to try out and write an honest review, so they are technically not new but certainly not used. My goal is to protect myself from being sued by any recipient directly from me or through an organization. Thanks so much for your help.

A: A Pennsylvania attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. You could consider writing a disclaimer, liability waiver, or similar document that aims to limit your liability. However, ultimately, there's no control over predicting whether anyone would sue or not, despite the fact that you're contemplating a good deed out of generosity. Good luck
