I was walking my leashed Rottweiler in my community when an unleashed chihuahua came running out of nowhere towards my dog. Though I did my best to control my dog, he bit the other dog and shook it, until I was able to pry him away. I took him home immediately and came back to see the other dog, but he was gone. I later found out by the dog owners that he was taken to the vet and he died. The owners want me to pay their vet bill of $1,028. I feel terrible about what happened, but am I liable to pay their vet bill? I feel it's my fault their unleashed dog attacked my dog and dog reacted as he would feeling threatened.

I am not sure if I need an attorney or even what kind. I recently was admitted to a Behavioral Health with suicidal thoughts and ideation. I was discharged after, I think, about six days. Previous to my being admitted to BHC, Stockton, CA, I had fallen and had stitches in my left arm. I informed Dr. R. Reddy, the staff MD, that stitches needed to be removed. He checked on me one time for probably about one minute and I did not see him again, nor did I get my stitches out. I was not given reasonable notice of my discharge, nor was I involved in the development and implementation of a discharge plan. My right to be involved in the development and implementation of a discharge plan was violated. I feel I was prematurely discharged; the case manager never addressed my needs. I saw her a couple of times in the hallway and pleaded with her to please come see me. She never did. Having a case manager during stay is a right I was also not given. I do not feel I should have to pay for services that I did not receive and I was prematurely discharged. Do I have a case ?

I went to Berger Hospital in Circleville Ohio On Christmas

I went to Berger Hospital in Circleville Ohio On Christmas Eve because a took a fall down some stairs. One of my teeth from my top denture went thru my top lip. The hospital took 3 different scans which I didn't know they were even taking because I was in so much pain and wouldn't have let them take because I was uninsured . All I needed was for the tooth to be extracted from my lip, which I thought was done. On January 16 the right side of my mouth was still hurting and I discovered they had not got all of my tooth out of my lip. Now they are trying to charge me for scans that were not needed and a job that was not completed. I applied for financial help because I am uninsured and I on a fixed income and they declined it. I want to know if their is anything I can do about their fee and the fact that they did not do their job.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: It is in OhioJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I filled out a paper that they sent for financial aid and sent in back in. They contacted me today and said I was denied.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no
