School fieldtrip liability waivers


Recommended Posts

Every time there is a school field trip the school wants parents to sign a permission to give emergency treatment and liability waiver. After some research there are cases of negligence where injuries occurred but because the parent signed a waiver the court rejected suit. I'm not sure a school liability waiver would mean anything in Thailand and isn't that why schools carry liability insurance or don't they?  I would also think that providing emergency treatment is mandatory regardless of not signing any waiver. Any opinions or experiences?

Liability release I understand, I also have to sign those for trips for my kid.


But 'permission to give emergency treatment ' I don't understand and also don't recognise from my own experience. It may stem from the old days, when people still thought that giving emergency treatment might get them into trouble. Since quite a few years already it has become clear that is not the case.
