Cleveland, OH asked in Personal Injury for Ohio

Q: At my apartment complex, they left rusted pool cover bolts up, sliced my foot requiring 9 stitches. What are my options?

I was walking along the pool and the apartment complex left pool cover bolts that should be flush with the concrete up. These bolts were about 1" off the ground all around the pool and I sliced my foot so bad it required 9 stitches and a visit to the ER before I bled out. So far my medical bills are $2300 and counting. I haven't been able to drive and have had to stay off my foot for 2 weeks now because of this negligance. I can send all the pictures from that day but it's bad. What are my options?

A: An Ohio attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. I'm sorry about your accident. You ask about options. The short answer is that you could try to arrange a free initial consult with an Ohio attorney. Upon a detailed investigation, they could best outline your options. You could search for attorneys on your own online, you could use the Find-a-Lawyer tab above to find attorneys by region, or you could see if the resources of the Ohio State Bar Association could be helpful. Good luck
