I entered jail and upon booking I immediately notified the medical officer I was a heart patient and was on disability for depression and PTSD and I was on my way to schedule an appointment for back surgery that was needed immediately or I could be permanently physically disabled if I didn't have surgery soon. I also told them I was taking oxycontin and hydrocodone and would need my meds. I was denied any meds and suffered the time I was there. I started losing feeling in my left leg and eventually fell and reinjured my back and was not taken to the emergency room because he lied on the incident report. When the jail doctor did see me he ordered them to take me to the emergency room. while I was being treated the jail called the hospital and told the Dr. not to give me anything for pain.Aside from the injury i suffered in jail I also was denied visits to the law library. I was segregated in put in a solitary cell and my privileges were taken and I had done nothing wrong. I made calls to attorneys and they found out and an attempt on my life was made. I survived and was taken back to solitary and filed a writ of habeas and my bond was lowered from $200,000 to$60,000 and was PR'd out. What can I do to compensate for my permanent injury? I have arranged for surgery but doctors say I will never be 100%.
