Reviews - What do our customers think?
What you should know about liability  May 9, 2005
We've all heard of ridiculous liability lawsuits that we think will never stand a chance in court and then, to our surprise, find that huge jackpots are awarded to the plantiff of these suits! The woman who was awarded $3 million for spilling McDonalds coffee on herself comes to mind for me, but there are hundreds of similar rulings and similar outrageous payouts. With increasingly more people filing such lawsuits how confident are you that your church will not be found liable for something or another and forced to pay our tremendous amounts of money?

Stephen Chawaga, a Philadelphia attorney, has put together a brief (80 page) handbook introducing liability and the general principles of this confusing legal area. Focusing on charitable institutions--and especially churches--Chawaga explains various scenarios in which a church WOULD be found liable by a court and also scenarios in which a court WOULD NOT be found liable and why. He also gives a good deal of practicle advice concerning how to protect yourself against exposure to liable suits.

Whether it's personal injury (slipping and falling) suits, employee injury suits, or suits resulting from the inappropriate actions of employees or volunteers, the principles of protecting yourself remain the same: be vigilant in looking for possible problems, create safeguards against said problems, and educate yourself about liability. This book is a good first step toward all three.
Highly recommended  Jan 14, 2004
Outstanding resource for both the health and safety professional and the upstart christian organization.
