Does a Medical Release Prevent Liability for Negigence by a Doctor?
The language you quoted does not appear to contain an exception for negligence, however, a court may find it unenforceable on policy grounds to protect against negligence. A waiver or release gives up a right, such as releasing one from his/her liability for harm or damage that may occur from performing under a contract, or participating in an activity. It is generally not effective to protect a person from liability for intentional acts or gross negligence. It is a matter of subjective determination for the courts, based on all of the facts and circumstances involved.
