Good morning:

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to provide general information regarding your question. First, I am sorry to hear of the situation you were in as a result of this individual's actions.

May I ask, you mention that you have been compensated for medical bills. Was this through the criminal courts (or health insurance) process? In other words, how did the compensation come about?
