Permanente Medical Group, Inc., sued by car accident victims
Ali Moqadam filed a negligence lawsuit against the Permanente Medical Group, Inc., Kaiser Foundation Hospitals, Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc., and Dr. Maryalice Ambrose, M.D. for allowing a seizure patient to drive. The driver, Alma Valencia, caused a car accident in June of 2010.
Dr. Ambrose recommended that the State of California Department of Motor Vehicles suspend Valencia’s license after treating her for a seizure disorder in 2005. In 2007, Dr. Ambrose rescinded her request, allowing Valencia to get her license back.
The plaintiffs claim that Valencia’s seizure disorder makes her a threat on the road. Additionally, the plaintiffs claim that the medical institutions are responsible for damages from the car accident since they could have prevented Valencia from driving.
