TORTS: MOTOR VEHICLE NEGLIGENCE: PROPOSAL FOR SETTLEMENT: PROPOSAL FOR SETTLEMENT WAS UNENFORCEABLE BECAUSE IT PROPOSED TO RESOLVE CONTRACTUAL AND STATUTORY CLAIMS AND WAS, THEREFORE, AMBIGUOUS AS TO WHETHER IT WOULD PRECLUDE POTENTIAL UNINSURED MOTORIST AND HEALTH INSURANCE CLAIMS

Vogan v. Cruz, ___ So. 3d ___, 40 Fla. L. Weekly D603 (Fla. 5th DCA March 6, 2015)

A proposal for settlement from the defendant in a motor vehicle negligence case was unenforceable because it “propose[d] to resolve contractual and statutory claims” and was, therefore, “ambiguous as to whether it would preclude [the plaintiff’s] potential uninsured motorist and health insurance claims.”
