Amelia, OH asked in Contracts, Animal / Dog Law and Appeals / Appellate Law for Ohio

Q: Would I be able to go after a vet office for making me sign things while I was in a mental crisis?

When I had to put my cat down, I was not in the correct state of mind. I could barely comprehend what was going on at the time as if I was in a dissociative state. I'm not able to pay the bill, and despite me saying that multiple times, it felt as if they kept pressuring me to sign the financial payment plan. I'm disabled both physically and mentally, so finding and securing a job for an amount of time is incredibly difficult for me.

I do have character witnesses as well as possible [human] hospital records that can back me up if need be.
