Answer

Generally, the answer is, “Yes.” If someone’s negligence leads to your injury, you have a right to sue for compensation. That’s true whether the person causing your injury is another driver or someone swinging a driver at Top Golf in Las Vegas.

The big question that tends to come up with accidents at Top Golf and similar places is whether you signed a waiver. This is usually the first thing they’ll wave in your face if you try to sue, but the mere fact you signed a waiver does not necessarily prevent you from suing.

The Key Is Understanding The Waiver

The odds are you’ve likely seen and signed a waiver at some point. Many businesses use waivers to protect themselves. This is because when you sign a waiver, you’re generally forfeiting some of your rights, including your right to pursue a lawsuit for certain, specific injuries.

However, the fact that you signed a waiver does not always prevent you from suing. The waiver is a type of contract, and the language matters.

Typically, waivers will protect businesses like Top Golf from lawsuits based around the sorts of risks you’d assume for the activities they conduct. For example, if you have a bunch of people swinging golf clubs and hitting golf balls, the waiver might protect Top Golf from lawsuits filed by people who get hit by golf balls.

That said, waivers won’t always protect businesses from atypical injuries. You might expect errant golf balls to fly through the air, but you might not expect the head to fly off of a driver and into your face. You may still be able to file claims for injuries such as these.

There are other reasons waivers may not protect businesses the way the businesses expect. Minors may still have a right to sue, even when their parents sign waivers for them.

Every Case Has Unique Circumstances

The main thing to understand is that the specific circumstances of the injury and the specific language of the waiver will make a big difference in these types of cases. You don’t want to base your decisions off some vague idea of the rules. You need to make sure you understand the facts and the rules for your case.

Even when you sign a waiver, you may have options. You don’t want to give up before you look into the facts.
