Bluebird Med. Enterprises, LLC v. Willis, No. 14-20-00566-CV, — S.W.3d —, 2022 WL 803982 (Tex. App.—Houston [14th Dist.] Mar. 17, 2022, no pet. h.)

Bluebird Med. Enterprises, LLC v. Willis, No. 14-20-00566-CV, — S.W.3d —, 2022 WL 803982 (Tex. App.—Houston [14th Dist.] Mar. 17, 2022, no pet. h.)

Assuming, without deciding, that a motor vehicle collision involving an ambulance presented a health care liability claim, the court of appeals found that the plaintiffs’ preliminary expert reports satisfied the health care liability act when a paramedic outlined how the standard of care and breach caused the crash while a forensic pathologist linked the breach to the deceased plaintiff’s injury and death. In so holding, the court of appeals rejected the ambulance company defendant’s argument that a physician was required opine on the cause of the collision, observing that under Chapter 74 a physician need only opine on the cause of the injury, harm, or damages claimed.
