Williams v. Atria Las Posas, 282513

Reversed and remanded an order denying a petition to compel arbitration. Plaintiff suffered major injuries, including a traumatic brain injury, in a bicycle accident and was admitted to a residential care facility. Due to his cognitive impairment, plaintiff walked away from the facility and was found several hours later lying in a ditch. He suffered kidney failure, respiratory arrest, heat stroke, and a second traumatic brain injury. Defendant, a residential care facility, petitioned to compel arbitration based upon an arbitration agreement, but the trial court denied the petition because of an integration clause. The appeals court reversed as to the integration clause, but remanded to the trial court with directions to consider other objections to the arbitration agreement.
