The trial court denied the hospital's motion to dismiss this health care liability case. Because the plaintiffs alleged a theory of vicarious liability, the causal allegations that the doctor's treatments caused injury to William are sufficient, alone, to satisfy Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code §74.351 as to the Hospital. And, since it was sufficient to surmount the expert-report hurdle as to the hospital's potential vicarious liability, it was sufficient to avoid the dismissal of the hospital from this action. The trial court's ruling is affirmed. Texarkana Court of Appeals, No. 06-13-00052-CV, 08-30-2013.
