My question involves police conduct in the State of: Indiana
Hello, I have a question from an incident that occurred 2 years ago. I was in a single car accident , I was the only one in the car. I found out later that I had 1 fractured vertebrae, and 1 that was "shattered". There was also damage to the discs and such.
At the hospital they would not give me pain medicine even though I was in so much pain that I could not stop yelling and cursing, also my legs were kicking uncontrollably, and I was bucking and writhing on the bed. The police officer and the charge nurse wanted me to sign some papers, but I was in so much pain I could not be still enough to read them. The Nurse said "If you do not comply you will not receive medical treatment", so being in pain I signed the papers one after the other. The officers papers where for doing a blood test, which came back saying I was over the limit for BAC.
My question is was that coercion or duress. I felt as if I had no choice but to sign the papers, and if I did not then I could have died or been seriously mamed for life. Oh and they did not give me pain medicine untill they drew blood 3hours later.
Thanks in advance.
