Why cant one sue or take to a Bais Din

Submitted.
Would you go to a doctor that has no malpractice insurance, or to a physician that you cant sue? most probably not. You want to know that there is accountability for negligence or harmful treatment decisions. You would feel better knowing the physician takes responsibility for his or her treatment decisions. Why when it comes to mental health therapy there is no achrayus or responsibility? at a particular agency they make you sign that you wont sue or take them to a bais din. What are they scared of? If you are professional and provide proper diagnosis and treatments why resort to these unprofessional tactics forcing patients to sign that they wont sue you. In the medical world this would never fly.

  1. You obviously have the right not to sign and use a different agency. Its a free country. Why is this a post. Its silly. If you dont like it dont sign. There are other choices available.

    1. Do you have a choice? What specific mental health professional do you recommend that does not require this signature. Perhaps it is an industry standard.

    2. It's why we go to a local therapist that has a PhD and didn't ask to sign anything. He has a proven track record and did wonders for our marrige. It's an arm and a leg but worth every penny.

  2. Actually it's more than one agency that makes you sign not to sue or go to a din torah. These agencies accept nj care therefore those who can't afford private practice have no choice but to use these clinics. The therapists working there are interns with no experience. You get what you pay for.

  3. Even with a waiver you may be able to sue.

  4. I hardly believe that it is possible to sign away the rights to sue for malpractice. I don't believe the law allows for that.

  5. A din Torah would not help, a therapist working at **** was taken to a din torah over a very serious claim and after losing has refused to honor the psak. it's worth every penny to go to a private professional.

    1. There is only a few should not be that hard to figure out. Ask around before using them do a lot of research. Free therapy may end up costing you hundreds of thousands of dollars.

  8. These agencies are guided by Days Torah including calling authorities and alienating children from parents. The daas torah is anonymous. ..

  9. The head of one of these agencies recently spoke hoe everything they do is according to Daas Torah. But he did not mention who the rabbonim are. In divorce cases the therapists treat children without notifying both parents which caused children to be alianated.

  12. My wife had her eardrum busted in one of the prominent doctors offices in Lakewood. He absolutely refused to even discuss payment for damages. No Lakewood Bais Din was willing to send him a Hazomona and it just worth fighting so I gave up.

  13. If anyone had any issues with any therapist in Lakewood we are organizing a committee to monitor therapists and social workers. Please speak to any of the Rabonim who are not part of the Lakewood/BMG establishment with your story. And with the Koach Horabim we will be able to tell the Malach Hamashcis , HEREF!
