Protect Yourself This Halloween: Get Your Disclaimer Here!

By October 31, 2005Briefly Legal

As regular blog readers know, the trial lawyers are running rampant out there, waiting to sue at the drop of the hat — that is, if the hat causes you to stumble, or to get sick with worry about stumbling. We know they were the first on the ground after Hurricane Katrina, wading past all the folks in need to sign ’em up to sue somebody. This is a lawsuit-happy culture, as you all know.

This Halloween, as a public service, we want to make sure you protect yourselves from lawsuits. Thanks to the sharp-eyed folks over at the Center for Consumer Freedom. we provide you with this “Halloween Liability and Indemnification Agreement“. Please download it before you leave work today and run over to Kinko’s and make 40-50 copies. Heck, you can even use this link to do it electronically so they’ll be waiting for you when you get there. Grab a box of crayons and have the little monsters sign ’em when they come to your house, apartment, condo, town house, hut, shack, cave or yurt tonight. As you’ll see, it should protect you from claims of obesity, cravings, furry teeth, tummy aches, and other actionable conditions. You may want to add a codicil covering tooth decay as well. If possible, please get a parent or legal guardian to sign, too. This way you can make sure the “trick” won’t come in the form of a lawsuit arriving on your doorstep in the morning.

Please use the “Send to a Friend” link below to forward this to anyone you know who is observing Halloween, i.e., those who have not been scared off or threatened by various “consumer advocacy” or “anti-witch” organizations. Make sure they protect themselves this Halloween! Don’t be the only one on your block without ’em! You’ll be a sitting duck!

Remember when all we had to worry about was getting “TP’d”….?
