You probably should consult a criminal defense attorney who might be able to see what is going on. If they haven't charged you yet with anything they still could be investigating, etc.. If you haven't already you should also tell your insurance company right away.

It is very hard if not impossible to answer your question with the limited amount of information. If you have an attorney - what are they telling you? Medical liens are a very complicated area of law with many variables including how obtained and what type of medical insurance you had.

answered on Jul 25, 2022

Well, the issue would be whether there is any evidence that the entity responsible for maintaining that bathroom was negligent in maintaining the air filters, or knew of such harmful substance existing in the filters and allowed it to remain there causing actual injury to users of the restroom.

Yes a civil attorney can help you but unfortunately most will require you to pay a retainer and pay their hourly rate. A few that I know of will reduce the hourly rate if you give them a percentage of the case but they are few and far between.
