Statement of Claim
Claimant says:
"This message is for Golbarg D. Smith, DMD who treated me. In July of this year, I had my teeth cleaned and had 3 teeth filled. I take anti rejection medications to lower my immune so my transplanted kidney won't be rejected. I was not given any antibiotics during these procedures and ended up getting a Strep bacterial infection in my blood and didn't find out about the infection until a month ago when I had to go to the hospital. I spent 10 days in TGH (Tampa General Hospital) and have not been able to do much since August when I was starting to feel ill all the time. I am home now but have to do IV antibiotics through what is called a Hickman line that is inserted into my chest and neck making it hard to do much or shower. I have to keep this Hickman line until the middle of December when the antibiotics stop. The infectious disease doctors who treated me for 10 days at Tampa General Hospital for the Strep infection all said that this type of strep bacterial infection I got only lives in the mouth and for it to get into my blood, it had to be transmitted from having dental work. I was asked by the infectious doctors if I had any dental work done recently and I said yes back in July 2017.
If you would like to come to a fair settlement for all the hell I have been through & that stays between you and me and out of court, then you can reach me at my email at My patient info you have is Jimmy Williams, DOB 03/01/1959.

    The claimant should file a complaint with the appropriate state dental board. The dental board will then open a claim and conduct an investigation. You could also hire an attorney and they would most likely want copies of your dental chart.

    This case looks expensive to try and could go either way. Often insurance companies cover such costs and then go after the cause if they know about it. I suggest letting the defendant know that if they do not offer you something you will contact an attorney and the insurance to see if either or both will go after the defendant. Then, if no offer is made, contact the attorney and then the insurance to see what they will do. If an offer is made, see if the attorney believes you can do better, and only if the attorney is willing to work on a contingency only fee and only get costs if costs are recovered, would I purse this further with an attorney.
