FORT LAUDERDALE — A Broward County couple is suing Fort Lauderdale medical providers, alleging negligence, conversion and vicarious liability.
Toby Hantman and Eugene Hantman filed a complaint Sept. 7 in Broward Circuit Court against Senior Nannies Home Care Services LLC and Mourica A. Allen, alleging Senior Nannies hired Allen with knowledge that she had a criminal record.
According to the complaint, between July 15-Aug. 18, 2016, the Hantmans sustained significant financial losses and damages, including the loss of personal properties of sentimental value, including diamond and gold jewelry, as a result of being Allen being assigned to provide them home health care services. The suit says Allen obtained, benefited and used the Tamarac property of the Hantmans to commit felonious actions. Allen was arrested by the Broward County Sheriff's Office on Sept. 27, 2016, the suit says.
The plaintiffs allege the defendants hired an employee with a known criminal record, failed to adequately train and supervise its employees, and failed to ensure that its employees were fit for the job responsibilities assigned to them.
The Hantmans seek trial by jury, compensatory damages in excess of $15,000, plus court costs. They are represented by attorneys Eric J. Mausner of Miami, and by Scott M. Aigen of Aigen Law Firm PA in Miami.
