Miami Home Health Aide Negligence: Questions and Answers

Q. Someone Needs to be Held Accountable for this Neglect. Can I Sue the Home Health Aide? Can I Sue the Home Health Agency?
A. In a Miami home health aide negligence case, you can always sue the individual aide. The problem lies with insurance coverage. She likely will not have her own insurance policy, so that will be a dead end in terms of your monetary recovery. Most private nurse agencies and registries have ample insurance, but they will typically claim the aide is merely an independent contractor. Our lawyers can usually overcome this hurdle.
