A waiver is only valid if the company or person making you sign the waiver follows all the rules. In this case, the equipment failed, that negates any waiver the company had, the dive operator didnt pay close enough attention to the diver, so that negates their waiver. A waiver only holds up if it is found the company did nothing to increase the risk above what the person signing the waiver could reasonable expect. So basically if you make people sign waivers you better make sure you have your act in order or that waiver will double as T.P.
