Newport News, VA asked in Personal Injury, Civil Litigation and Civil Rights for Virginia

Q: If I have a claim as explained below, would you be interested in assisting me?

On March 19, 2021, during my incarceration, a civilian doctor refused to give me a CT-Scan and a Myelogram because I had refused to submit to a COVID-19 test administered by his nurse due to my having previously experienced severe nasal pain and nose bleeds caused by previous tests for COVID-19. On March 22, 2021, the prison officials released me on parole without giving the CT-Scan and Myelogram, knowing I was experiencing severe pain in my back, legs, chest, and feet due to spinal stenosis and spondylosis of lumbar spine.
