a lease in which a party intends to grant some leeway or leniency to do so only after it has preferably clearly indicated in writing that its consent should not be considered a waiver of the right to strictly enforce the contract in the future. Personal injury exemption: This waiver is often used when a person suffers a minor injury (physical or psychological) and agrees not to sue for compensation. A waiver of rights usually means that the contractual partner loses the right to assert a claim contrary to the contract. As a result, claims for damages and other remedies that may be available are lost. A waiver clause in a contract is intended to limit the effect of the general waiver. .
