If a company states in it's charter that they will not be held

Customer Question

If a company states in it's charter that they will not be held responsible for any damages that occur from their product or employees to a residence or company can that company be sued if it is a known fact that their product and their poorly trained employees do cause damage and the company knew this could happen?

Yes they can be sued successfully. This is true even if you signed a waiver if there is negligence or mis-representation. It is not possible for anyone to simply state they will not be liable.
