    Hypothetical question: If I had a business where I produced video/photos of motorcycle riders on the street for a fee, and one of my clients crashed during shooting, could I be held liable in any way for the accident? Does anyone have experience in liability waivers? I'm thinking it might not be as simple as having the rider sign a contract or providing proof of insurance. Any thoughts?

    Don't forget that waivers won't always work, either. They work BEST when supplied by YOUR insurance company, because then its your insurance companies lawyers defending you. I'm gonna bet no insurance carrier will protect you if you're filming on the street.

    I'm also gonna guess there's a track somewhere near where you are, for which you could get coverage for a shoot. You'll have to pay, most likely, but then you won't end up a penniless hobo or in jail.
