About 2 years ago I was arrested. When I was arrested I invoked my right to remain silent and wouldn't make any comments nor answer any questions. I had suffered some cuts hours prior to being arrested, and the police took me to the hospital to have them looked at. Got a tetanus shot and that's about it. I was sent medical bills for this and never paid them, as I never requested nor agreed to receive any kind of medical attention. And the injuries were minor. Months later the charges related to the case were dropped. Now I'm being sued for the medical bills, but do not feel I should have to pay them. The opposing lawyer said I'd have to subpoena doctors, nurses, and cops involved to prove my case. True or false? Either way, do I have a leg to stand on?I was remaining silent while under arrest, so I did not refuse nor accept the medical service. Had I not been under arrest I would have refused it. My thinking about it was that my right to remain silent would trump my not actually refusing service. How can I refuse when I can't say anything?
