Hello and welcome, Alex.
My name is XXXXX XXXXX my goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I am sorry to hear of your difficult situation. Before I can give you an accurate answer to your question, please provide the following additional information:
Are you willing to take legal action against the hospital if necessary?
I look forward to assisting you as soon as I have received this information. Thank you.
The legal action step had crossed our minds. For that we had contacted a law firm in Tampa but ultimately were informed that there was little merit in pursuing this case. We are not bent on "revenge." However, this develoment caught us completely by surprise. If necessary we can take up the legal action again.
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate my service when I have answered your questions so I will be compensated for my time assisting you. Thank you!
OOps, I lost you. In you clarification I have to say that the rehab has no connection in this case only that I was the patient there.
My wife is the injured person in this case and the injury was sustained on the grounds of the hospital where I was previously.
However, I would ask you to answer me two questions:
1. Should we seek the help of a personal injury law firm in Florida or Kentucky. Forida is where it happened and is our winter residence. Kentucky is our summer residence.
2. Where would one look for a personal injury law firm for the state of Florida?
OK, thank you Tina. I will make the contact with the link that you gave me. I will now make the requested rating, it will be a Smiley!

Good morning Tina,
Many thanks for the follow up. I would like to ask you to send me the link again for the Florida Bar. org as the width of this type of correspondence clipped a portion off and it did not connect. However, I did find the address and telephone number for the Hillsborough County bar association and they finally sent me the address and phone number for a lawyer bith the name of Bill McKnight. I gave his secretary a short description of the case and she seems to have consulted with him. He ultimately declined with the explanation that this case was outside of his decicated practice, or some such agricultural term. He either does not see enough opportunity for his efforts or he sees a difficulty within Hillsborough County or the hospital. In any case, I am quite happy that you came back with a contact. Ultimately we might have to present this to the Florida State Attorney's office, what do you think? My concern is that if we react in any way favorable it would be an admission of some sort of our "guilt." On the other hand, what can they do if we refuse to pay? One of the things they can do is to attack our credit rating. Well, we are pushing into our eighties, have not debts und don't plan to make large purchases. Of course they might put a lien against our house or something of that sort. For right now, we are grateful for any kind of help from you. Thanks again.
BTW: Yes we did give a very good comment of your services.
