Bender v. Caregivers of America, Inc.

A nursing agency sent our client a home health aide who was supposed to drive our client around town. The brakes on the aide’s car were not working properly and our client was injured in an auto accident. We sued the nursing agency and it argued it was not liable based on documents the client signed. The trial court entered summary final judgment for the nursing agency. We argued the documents were no defense to our client’s negligence claims. The Fourth District Court of Appeal agreed ruled an agreement to release someone from a future claim of negligence must include the word “negligence.” 42 So. 3d 893 (Fla. 4th DCA 2010).
