Q: I was released from the hospital with a .2 blood alcohol content and I had to walk home and I fell and hit my head twic
I called the non emergency number and they sent out a police officer and he offered to get an ambulance but it was to the same hospital. I did not feel safe.
A: A Michigan attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. I'm sorry for your injury. In such a setting, the hospital could raise the issue that based on its observations, it saw no lawful grounds to detain a patient. One option you have is to reach out to attorneys to discuss the matter in greater detail, based on your medical records. Good luck
