Onsite Medic and Assuming More Liability Because of It
I am running an outdoor scary woods. It's about 1/2 mile walk and fresh cut trail... which means off trail there are sticks and dangers everywhere. For safety reasons we plan on walking the guests EXTREMELY slow with a zombie guide leading them. We will not have many of the traditional startle scares. We cant have people running off the trail. We started considering having an onsite medic with equipment and asked our local business networking group for referals. We got some good referals but we also had our group lawyer chime in that we should consult with him first, that by having medics on site we were assuming more liability. His fee is $300 an hour to actually go discuss.
Have you guys gone over the pros and cons of an onsite medic service / ambulance? I'm sure a lawyer can always come up with reasons on why we should consult first. But is this a legit worry?
