Medical arbitration agreements have been growing more popular with doctors in Florida. These agreements require you, the patient, to give up your right to a jury trial should something go wrong. Many people feel pressured to sign, when they may not even understand what rights they may be waiving.
So should you sign one? No! We advise people not to sign such a document as it is one sided, unconstitutional and legally harmful to the patient.
Below is an example of a medical arbitration agreement. Watch for it in any new patient forms you may receive from medical providers, and as always, contact the Law Office of Gloria Seidule if you need an experienced medical malpractice and negligence attorney to fight for your rights in Stuart, Florida.
