Hi, Don, and Welcome to JustAnswer. Thank you for your question.

My name isXXXXX am an Attorney and would be glad to help

I am sorry you had to wait so long for an answer. Normally, our customers receive an answer within a few minutes of posting their question.

In your reply, you asked,

"You keep asking for more information---what information do you want? DCS"


Q. Who keeps asking you for more information ?

I am sorry about your friend, Patricia Tovar's accident and hope I will be able to help you. If you know the County and Township in Illinois in which Patricia had her accident, you should telephone the police department for that area, using their non-emergency number . While I realize that the police rarely, if ever, give any information over the telephone, maybe you can find that one in a million kind-hearted person in that depatment, tell them your concerns, the date and location of Patricia's accident, ask them their fee for a copy of the Police Accident Report, and ask them for a copy of the Accident Report. Some police departments are accepting credit cards for the payment of the fee for an Accident Report. You can ask the person if they can either fax or email you the Accident Report so that you will have it within minutes of calling them. This will give you information on the accident, who else was involved, addresses, and other contact information.

Since you know the name of the hospital, you might be able to discover where she was taken to receive rehabilitation therapy and where she probably still can be found, by sending flowers to her at Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital. You should instruct the florist to make absolutely sure that Patricia receives the flowers and that if she is no longer at the hospital (which you know that she is not ), to make sure that whe the floral delivery person is told that she is no longer there, he is to insist for a forwarding address where the flowers can be personally delivered by him. Hopefully, the hospital receptionist who receives these deliveries will give the name of the facility to which your friend was transferred, to the delivery person. Then the florist can give you that information and you can call that facility.

Since I also realize that these facilitities do not ordinarily give out information as to who is or is not a patient, you can ask them if the flowers you sent had been delivered and received by the patient. This will confirm if she is a patient at that rehabilitation facility.

At this point, and because you stated that you are dealing with "an obstinate family member", you probably should fly to her rehabilitation facility to determine for yourself if she is receiving proper treatment.

If you are unable to secure the name of the rehabilitaiton facility to which she was transferred by the above method, then you should consider hiring an experienced private investigator whose experience will lead him to all the information you want within 2 or 3 days, so the cost will not be excessive. You can then decide if you want to fly to Illinois to see Patricia and find out what her plans are once she is discharged from the rehabilitaiton facility.

I realize that this procedure will take many steps and require perseverence, but good friends are hard to come by and good friends are worth it.
