If he didn’t sign a consent to treatment, they will have a problem with billing him. If he did, then the hospital can do so. I saw in the article he protested each procedure, so I guess he never signed.
But yes, it will piss off the jury. This sounds like a case where the plaintiff’s attorney can the tell opposing counsel to get out the checkbook and he’ll tell them when to stop writing the zeroes.
Hospitals routinely bill criminal suspects for police-ordered procedures, like blood draws in DUI cases. In no way should a criminal suspect be required to pay these costs.
Next thing you know your family will be charged for the bullet they put through your head, just like China.

This guy is never going to have to work again.
Now, as for the LEOs, doctors and hospital administrators.... Those people should spend a lot of time behind bars where they can get a real education in anal procedures.
I would be having my attorney going after everyone involved, hospital, doctors, and police department and officers personally. I would want their badges and bank accounts. There is no excuse for this level of abuse of power by the officers and the hospital.
The bill will help to lock the case down, IMHO.
