Get a lawyer if you think it is his fault. They will help you sue the guy's insurance for your healthcare coverage, their fees, and your pain and suffering. Get one where if you don't win your case, you don't have to pay. That way, if you don't win, you still get healthcare and you won't be at a loss.

You can go to the county clinic. You don't need health insurance there. I don't know if that rule applies to US citizens though. I know it applies to illegals.

You have two choices.
1-If you have medical coverage on your auto policy, put a claim through your insurance company.
2-Put a claim against his auto carrier and hire a lawyer(as a last resort).

You only have one choice: become a man-ho

I was run down in Fairborn, so quite close.

I grew up in Xenia. This is why we trash talked Fairborn!

In all seriousness though, that really sucks. I think you just have to keep hitting up the ER. Many people without health insurance use the ER as their primary care provider. It's not the best solution in the world but neither is being in pain and not getting care.

Honestly, while many may not believe me, I work in the legal profession. Criminal side though (lawyer don't hate). To be honest, most civil attorneys should have referral doctor/front medical fees for you. Of course, it depends on the amount of possible pay out. So, a potential avenue would be check around with other attorneys.

Alternatively, you may want to see if you have to see a doctor as opposed to say a chiropractor, nurse practioner etc. Sometimes, in these types of situations, other pseudo medical personal are capable of helping you sustain your claim. Good luck man.

Edit: Make sure the other types of medical professionals or ok with the lawyer you have prior to going.

I'm moving to center ville so I'm safe, but my wife grew up Fairborn, right now we live in Middletown and I commute to school.

Chuck Norris doesn't cross roads, he salmons them.

Ugh. Fairborn. You must go to Wright State. Let me do some asking around for you. I have a couple of friends who are nurses & social services...

Although there are a few good personal injury lawyers around here... If the main thing you're concerned about is getting medical care & you don't mind that you'll lose a good chunk of any potential settlement you might get, that might be the way to go. Otherwise, in the mean time I agree w/Clementine. Keep hitting up the ER, it's better than not getting any care at all.

My friend who is a nurse just sent me this, it's a listing of free & sliding scale clinics.

https://m360.ohiochc.org/frontend/search.aspx?cs=635

She said also to try these places:

Good Neighbor House
http://www.goodneighborhouse.org/

Muslim Clinic of Ohio (Accepts only people w/no insurance, is free & open to all regardless of religious affiliation or preference- you don't have to be Muslim. She said this one is really good, but it's only open one day a week, so you'd better be available on Thursdays from 5-9 pm if you want to go here.)
http://daytonmercysociety.org/dayton_muslim_clinic_of_ohio

Dayton ReachOut
http://www.daytonreachout.org/index.html

She also said another possibility is the Samaritan Homeless clinic. http://www.goodsamdayton.org/gshdefault.aspx?id=21418 She said she believes you don't actually have to be homeless despite the name, and they accept the following:
Accepts: Uninsured, Underinsured, Insurance, Medicare, Medicaid
Income: All income levels accepted
Fees: Sliding scale of fees based on income
Languages Spoken: English

I hope this helps. My one nurse friend does volunteer work in the health community, so I had a feeling she'd have a list of resources. She did say some of these places require you to be anywhere from 250% below the federal poverty level to at the federal poverty level, but some accept all income levels & offer sliding scales. There will be various forms you'll have to fill out & provide proof of income, or lack thereof, and I'm not sure where you fall on the spectrum, but hopefully there will be something in this list to help you.

Had no idea so many VGF'ers were in Ohio - I'm just north of Cincy.

There's quite a few...

I hope Whizzer sees the info I posted.

I've lived here since 2003, though I'm originally from Indianapolis. I vastly prefer Indy, but it is what it is.

And now you're going to join the Houston vgf tribe, with me, Garion, and JJ. The good news is that there are lots of Wii U's rotting on the shelves here.
