This is an example of waiver of subrogation. This document is useful in conducting waiver of subrogation.
WAIVER OF SUBROGATION If anyone requests a waiver of subrogation to be added to a certificate of insurance, let them know Youth for Christ will NOT add a waiver of subrogation. What is a waiver of subrogation? It is an agreement not to subrogate on a claim. ???? Simply stated, a waiver puts ALL liability on YFC regardless of possible negligence of the other party. YFC does not want - nor can we afford - to accept complete liability. Here is an example: YFC sponsors a baseball game at a park with a set of bleachers for spectators. The park is owned by the city. The city requests a certificate of insurance with a waiver of subrogation. YFC issues a certificate with the waiver. One of the benches, in need of repair, collapses causing injuries to several people. The owner of the property was negligent in keeping the benches properly maintained. YFC paid for medical treatment for all injuries, and for the replacement of the damaged bench, because we were the sponsor of the baseball game. Standard procedure would be for YFC to go the city for reimbursement of all money paid out. However due to the waiver of subrogation, YFC assumes responsibility for all injuries and any property damage. Page 1 of 2 The park is the only place large enough to hold our event. The person asking for the certificate says we need a waiver. What do we do about the waiver? You can ask the person requesting the waiver a couple of questions such as: 1. Is the waiver mandatory? 2. Why do you need the waiver? 3. Can the waiver be waived for this event? If the city says the waiver is mandatory and will not waive it for your event, an alternative must be found. YFC does not want nor can we afford to accept complete liability. If you have any questions, or want to discuss a waiver of subrogation, please feel free to give Debbie Wederski a call at 303-843-6790. Page 2 of 2
