Yes, inmates in Ohio's prisons have right to legal representation. Employees of the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction owe prison inmates a duty to keep them safe from unreasonable harm.
These types of claims are filed in a special court, due to the fact that the lawsuit would be brought against the State of Ohio.

You've got legal and non-legal options. Your best bet may be to sue the individual. You'll need a lawyer for this. Don't even think about small claims, you'll be leaving money on the table.
Ohio has non-legal options through the Ohio BMV when you are struck by an uninsured motorist. You can file a BMV Crash Report (google: Ohio BMV FInancial Responsibility). This places a security suspension on their licence that is only lifted when they've paid your damages.See question

Did you have auto insurance at the time of the collision? If not, your situation highlights the dangers of driving without insurance - you can be held liable for the personal and medical damages you cause.
It certainly could be the case that the individual you struck incurred $1,900 in medical bills. Many (if not most) individuals involved in motor vehicle collisions do not go directly to a medical facility, rather, they go to an urgent care or doctor's office hours or days after the collision.
Should you had auto insurance at the time of the collision, report the incident to you insurance company so they can pay these bills.See question
My family and I rent a condo from my mother. We moved in in Sep '11, & paid $550/month through Chase quick pay. This was half of the mortgage payment. We never signed a lease-it was a verbal agreement. My mother told us Nov '12 she was plannin...
The Ohio Revised Code provides that a tenant may raise ANY defense to an eviction action at trial. Thus, testimony that rent is not in arrears would be a valid defense.
Furthermore, prior to commencing an eviction action in municipal court, the landlord must VALIDLY serve the 3-day notice by either (a) certified mail, (b) personal service, or (c) residential service. Sending a text message is not a valid method of service, and thus any eviction action the landlord would file after the defective service of a 3-day notice could be defeated in court, forcing the landlord to start over again.
This does not constitute legal advice. No attorney-client relationship has been formed through this answer.

Tenant is in arrears in rent and in violation of lease agreement for not having utilities turned over into his name. Was given notice March 12, 2013 and had ten days to turn over utilities. Did not comply. Was given a 7 day notice to vacate th...
Before instituting an eviction proceeding, a landlord must give the tenant a three-day notice to vacate, informing the tenant of the landlord's intent to begin a forcible entry and detainer action. If you attempt to begin a FED action w/out providing the tenant with the three-day notice to vacate as mandated by Ohio Revised Code 1923.04, the action will be defeated and you will have to start all over again.
Tenant's prior evictions will not aid your current attempt to evict tenant, as tenant's prior evictions bear not relevance on whether or not he or she breached their current lease agreement.See question

You're being sued by the insurance company because the landlord's insurance company paid to have the area repaired. They are asserting their right to seek recovery from the party that caused the damage.
You need to consult with an attorney to defend the lawsuit, because if you don't, you risk having a default judgment entered against you for the full value of what the insurance company is asserting.See question
I had a credit card in 2000 I couldn't pay due to a divorce. The amount was $1000.00. I have been getting calls trying to intimidate me to pay. I am on Soc.Sec. Disability and age 64. Can they take my check?
Keep in mind that the statute of limitations does not run until you default. Therefore, if you opened the credit card in 2000, but continued to pay it through 2008, the statute of limitations has not yet run.
Also, debt collectors can attempt to collect a time-barred debt without seeking the use of a court, and may even file a lawsuit, but if the debt is outside the statute of limitations, you can use the age of the debt as a defense to their action.See question

While landlords to have to abide by applicable health, building and safety codes and keep the apartment in a "fit and habitable condition," there is no Ohio law that makes a landlord replace carpet or repaint walls.
If you think you're paying too much in rent, explain this to your landlord. Ask him/her to replace carpet and repaint walls. If your landlord refuses, move out.See question

There are several ways in which an apartment tenant can deal with barking dogs. First and foremost, have a conversation with the person who owns the dogs. Explain to them your frustration and ask that they ensure their dogs do not continue to bark. If that fails, place your landlord on notice. Explain to them, in writing, them problem and ask that your landlord speak to your fellow tenant about the problem. At the same time, don't hesitate to call your local police department on their non-emergency number about the noise the dogs are making. Dog barking can violate your local noise ordinance. At the very least, your calls to the police department will create a record you can show to your landlord. If you have a responsive landlord, he or she will ask the tenant to leave or take steps to evict the tenant. If you landlord does not take steps to evict or otherwise remove the tenant, consider telling your landlord, in writing, your desire to place your rental payment in escrow until the issue is taken care of. Finally, if this still does not stop the barking, you can file a civil action against the fellow tenant and your landlord for nuisance. At this point, you ought to consider moving out as well, as a civil action can add additional weeks or months.See question
