Is a Health Care Provider-Patient Arbitration Agreement enforceable if the patient was not supplied a copy signed by the doctor?
I signed a Health Care Provider-Patient Arbitration Agreement with a chiropractor that falsely diagnosed me and then sold me treatment for the non-existing condition. I want to take him to small claims court to get a refund for the cost of the treatment. The copy of the arbitration agreement that I have does not have the doctors signature of any of his information on it at all. Is it enforceable?
It may be enforceable against you if you signed. However, fraud if proven, can be used to short circuit an arbitration clause. You may want to speak with an attorney over consultation.
