Customer Question
I have a large...

I have a large nursing home bill.I was taken from my hospital room by two nurses,and driven to a nursing home,without even being asked,or told where I was being taken.I later discovered that I had been taken to a very expensive nursing home that I simply couldn't afford.I was NEVER made aware of the cost.I consider this deceptive behavior,and feel I should have been informed of the cost before I was handed a huge bill I can't afford to pay.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Illinois

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Not that I'm aware of.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No,that's everything.Thank You.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
