Ulnar Collateral Ligament, Diagnosis
SACRAMENTO (CN) - A woman accuses Kaiser Foundation Health Plan of failing to quickly diagnose her ulnar collateral ligament injury.
Peterson claims that on October 18, 2009 to February 8, 2010, she "was negligently examined, diagnosed and treated at Kaiser health care facilities. At these times and places, there was a negligent failure to diagnose and a negligent delay in the diagnosis and treatment of an ulnar collateral ligament injury."
"As a result of this negligent diagnosis and treatment, Plaintiff has suffered severe and permanent physical injuries ... As a proximate result of the negligence ... Plaintiff was hurt and injured in her health, strength and activity, sustaining injury to her body and shock and injury to her nervous system ... [and] said injuries have caused and continued to cause Plaintiff great physical pain and suffering," the suit claims.
She seeks general damages as well as medical and incidental expenses among other compensations. David Smith with Kershaw Cutter & Ratinoff represents her.
