Ticket Disclaimers Do Not Excuse Atlanta Stadium Negligence

Ticket Disclaimers Do Not Excuse Atlanta Stadium Negligence

When you buy ticket to a sporting event, it contains a disclaimer:
Theholder voluntarily assumes all risks incident to the event, including the risk of lost, stolen or damaged property or personal injury… The holder voluntarily assumes all risk associated with the purchase of this ticket…”

Does this ticket disclaimer mean that you can’t sue if you are injured?

All property owners, including stadium owners, have a duty to protect the invited public from foreseeable injury. Owners and companies that manage large sports stadiums know that sports can be dangerous to spectators. They are aware of the potential risks to the fans that visit their stadiums.
Some of these risks can be eliminated with protective equipment. There is a protective net behind the home plate at Turner Field. That net is designed to protect fans from foul balls. But, a net does not protect from all possible dangers. This is why tickets to sporting events and concerts are often printed with a disclaimer. When you buy your ticket, you indicate that you understand the risk for injury and you assume responsibility for any injuries that occur while you are at the stadium.
Ticket disclaimers prevent you from suing if you are hit with the ball during the game, but do not protect stadiums from legal responsibility if someone is seriously injured because of negligence. A person who is injured at an Atlanta sports stadium may sue if the injury was caused by a violation of building codes, inadequate property maintenance, or a lack of security.
