Bankruptcy and Medical Bills
There is no doubt that many of the bankruptcy cases I handle include hospital bills, and if the client had an major disease like cancer, it is likely that person will file for bankruptcy studies show.
Because of the costs of medical treatments, many patients delay treatment, or cut costs by not taking all the required medication, the consequences predictable. Each year, there are more than 1.7 million new cases of cancer diagnosed.
Creditors, who are in the habit of threatening clients, will typically state that medical bills cannot be included in a bankruptcy. The creditors are usually collection agencies that bought the debt from the hospital and are now looking to collect.
As a general rule, many collection agencies are fly-by-night companies whose tactics are dubious at best, illegal at worst. However, once you hire a bankruptcy attorney, by law, creditor calls will stop.
If you are facing a large debt due to medical bills, contact a bankruptcy attorney. The overwhelming majority of bankruptcy attorneys do not charge for the initial consultation.
