An Ohio attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. There are attorneys who handle health care claims. If you're considering consulting with an attorney, first review your paperwork. That could help make the most of a meaningful consult. Review your policy, review...View More
An Ohio attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks.

If you consult with an attorney on the claim, that's one of the first things...View More

You may not be able to avoid bankruptcy, that's what it's there for. You can contact the credit card companies to see if they would be willing to work with you. Otherwise, a debt consolidation service may also be of assistance.
I was checked in and taken back to the pre-op area.i had changed clothes and in the bed when i was taken to another area of the hospital and informed that my surgery was canceled because they did not have the right equipment there.
I do not see an actionable claim based upon these facts. If you were harmed or charged for this you may have some minimal recourse, but it sounds like the hospital did the right thing overall. Maybe if you traveled a long way and incurred significant costs, the hospital should reimburse you if...View More

She is in a assisted living home. We have never caused any trouble or had the police called for doing anything wrong. We are there maybe 3 days a weeks for 2 hours that’s it. How can the property manager do this. She’s scared of the landlord and the landlord is a female. The landlord comes... View More
The short answer is probably yes. You may be able to contest the grounds for the trespass with the parent company who owns the nursing home, however. Ultimately, it may be better to move your ex-mother-in-law to another facility. For a more detailed answer I recommend sitting down with an...View More
As a general rule yes. I do not practice law in Missouri but unless the POA in that state materially differs from those in Ohio they will and should be accepted by Ohio under the full faith and credit clause of the constitution. I am assuming that the POA does not limit itself to only Missouri...View More

Your employer will not be liable to pay or waive the expense. It is your responsibility to ensure that your health care providers are covered under your employer's insurance plan. You can ask if your therapist or your insurance company is willing to work with you on payments.
Holding you and preventing you from continuing on your way or returning home would require the officer to either detain or arrest you. They cannot simply deny your right to return home without legal justification that is sufficient to trump your constitutional rights.
