I was in a car accident, don't even remember it, only being taken to the ER. I had two beers two hours earlier. While at the ER the police read me my rights but did not arrest me. They told me of informed consent and asked for a blood test. I requested to confer with a lawyer several times as I had some confidential questions to ask before submitting my blood, but was refused. I never refused my blood. I also believe I had a concussion so I wanted an advocate there for me as I was lucid, but my information processing skills were not sharp. I have read that you have 20-30 minutes to contact a lawyer after being read informed consent., and I was wondering if that is true and if I should have been given a lawyer. I was mirandized. I gave them my blood anyway but was concerned with the processAlso, while I was mirandized, I was never actually arrested. I was discharged from the hospital about two and a half hours after the accident.
