I went to a chiropractor to get a back alignment meant back in 2014, but I wasn't/ I was not able to pay the bill and now I'm getting Court summon to pay the full amount of $2,400. What can I do in this situation, I have no money, no job nothing monetarily to pay this bill I need help.
I suggest that you at least speak with an attorney that handles debt-defense or consumer-protection matters. If money is an issue, just ask when you contact an attorney if they will offer a consultation at no-cost-to-you. Depending on the exact date of services and the legal theory involved, you could have a statute of limitations defense. There may be other defenses as well.

Posting the question and reviewing the answer does not constitute an attorney-client relationship. Skaar & Feagle, LLP accepts select consumer rights cases. These cases include, but are not limited to, cases of abusive and unlawful collection activity, unsolicited robocalls or text messages, unfair business practices to consumers and the elderly, credit reporting of false or obsolete (old) information, credit report errors due to either identity theft or mixed files, denial of jobs or promotions due to erroneous criminal background searches and the defense of lawsuits involving consumer debts such as credit cards, auto loans, or consumer loans.
As the other attorney correctly stated, you should seek an attorney consultation. I will just add that you should also act fast as you only have a limited time within to respond to the summons, so you should reach out to an attorney sooner rather than later. People who have been sued often find attorneys surprisingly affordable and old medical debt cases can be very defensible cases.
