At what point is it okay to sue a venue?

Posted by   + Show Post

So in the wake of the tragic accident at Daytona speedway as I suspected people are coming out with lawyers claiming they are sueing the Daytona raceway. But do the have a righty on the back of all NASCAR tickets it says " The holder of this ticket expressly all risk incident to the event,whether occurring prior to,during or subsequent to the actual event and agrees that all participants,sanctioning bodies,and all employees,agents,officers,and directors to said speedway and if affiliates and subsidiaries are hereby released from any and all claims arising from the event,including claims of negligence."  

So with any venue at what point do you feel this legal statement doesn't matter to you and you would sue knowing this is on the ticket to your event?

When their exceptions exceed their legal liberty to refuse responsibility.

However: anyone who doesn't know that sometimes things fly into the stands (at ball games, car races, etc.) clearly hasn't been paying sufficient attention to the warning signs in front of their faces. Or the sport in question...

Want an estimate on how many people read them?

How 'bout how many of the people who read them who actually understand what they are --in using the tickets and agreeing to sit where they do-- contractually agreeing with?

Maybe they shouldn't be standing that close to the fence.
