Peter Munsing's answer First you can't force a doctor to treat you. Suggest you look for a clinic and see if there is a health advisor who can tell you about the resources you have. My understanding--and I am not a doctor--is that you will not die. You may have a number of issues but death is not necessarily one of these. If you are a veteran, see if the VA hospital can help you. Then contact a member of the Ohio Assn for Justice who handles elder care issues. Your's may not be eldercare, but the issues you have...

Ohio's Political Subdivision Tort Liability Act creates a significant hurdle in such cases. Typically, such first responders will be immune from traditional negligence based liability. If the Narcan was wrongfully administered, and it was the proximate cause of your...
Peter Munsing's answer Depends on the cirumstances, but few attorneys handle dental malpractice and fewer take cases that have no significant harm from the result. Start by contact a member of the Ohio Assn for Justice--they give free consults.
Matthew Williams' answer You should sit down with a local medical malpractice attorney. Most will review your case for free, and if they find legal grounds for a suit will take it on a contingency basis. You've got nothing to lose by having it reviewed.
Matthew Williams' answer You are probably not too late. Statutes of limitations are measured in years. It is, however, important to speak with an attorney as soon as possible to get the ball rolling on your claim.
