Alan Alexander Secures Victory At Trial For Defendant Hospital

Earlier this month, Alan Alexander won a defense verdict for Providence Hospital in a trial involving the death of a two year-old child resulting from an allegedly undiagnosed arterial-venous malformation in his brain. The plaintiffs sued a physician who treated the child in the Providence emergency room, alleging that he was negligent for failing to order a CT scan or other tests that might have helped uncover the child’s brain condition. The case against Providence was based solely on an agency theory. After hearing seven days of testimony, the jury deliberated for a day and a half before rendering defense verdicts for all defendants.
