Last week I had a seziure while driving. I got my truck to the side of the road but still had a single car accident. Just my truck involved. When the Va State Police got on the scene they did not know what was going on nor what to do about it. I was beaten, tassered, hit with clubs, thrown on the ground and handcuffed and beaten somemore.
I did not come to until I was in the ER, about 3 hours later. I came to with an officer yelling at me "wheres the gun Mr. West? Wheres the gun"? In my groggy state I also heard a different officer say that he thought the holster they found was for a TOY GUN(which it was) They found no gun, they found no toy gun. That holster was left in there by my son.
I was still charged with
possesion of a firearm(no gun mind you)
assault on an officer
obstruction of justice
and DWI(blood work clean)
I then spent 2 nights in jail. 1st night on floor and confussed. Now, my ex-wife won't let me see my kids and my company is threatening to fire me!
PLEASE HELP! DOES ANYONE KNOW A GOOD EPILEPSY LAWYER? I WANT THIS WRONG MADE RIGHT AND I DON'T WANT ANYONE ELSE TO HAVE TO GO THROUGH WHAT I DID/AM
I have talked to a couple lawyers now and they all want money up front to handle the bogus charges I got first. Then they will pursue the "other aspects" of the case. I am really starting to worry. I missed seeing my children because of this, and now I got laid off from my job. Even though I got a note from my neurologist clearing me to go back to work.
Is not exactly this type of thing what the ADA Laws were passed for? Is not exactly this type of thing what the Epilepsy Foundation is supposed to be putting an end to?
Maybe if it happens again I will be killed by the tasser, that way my family can atleast get taken care of. Since I now can't after being laid off because of this.
I just don't understand. LAWYERS!
ps: sorry for the "rant" Jean. No one will listen, and this is getting me very worried. I could go to jail for this.(again)
maybe someone will see this or send it on to someone who can help me make a difference. To ensure something like this NEVER happens again.
How about looking for a Personal Injury lawyer...
