Alliance, OH asked in Products Liability for Ohio

Q: I need to see a doctor due to a product injury but can’t afford to pay and don’t know what to do

The brand new power recliner tipped over and threw me on the floor the first time I used it. If I am injured…how do I see a doctor if I have no money

A: An Ohio attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. You could reach out to local attorneys to see if it would be possible to arrange a free initial consult to discuss. One option might be public health agencies. Another is that if an attorney identified the basis for a case, treatment might be provided under medical lien with the medical providers, where they agree to payment from a portion of the award in a case. That's up to the medical office. These are only a few basic general considerations. Good luck
