You Can Eliminate Medical Debt
Medical debt is often a significant factor for people considering bankruptcy even though the vast majority are insured. Even families and individuals with otherwise healthy finances may become overwhelmed by medical debt. While some people accumulate medical debt because they do not have health insurance, this is typically not the case. Many individuals suffer injury or illness that prevents them from going back to work or maintaining their earning level. Workers’ compensation may not be enough. Insurance coverage may not be enough. Some people who were able to make ends meet before they suffered injury or illness have been forced into a financial struggle that seems insurmountable. Our attorneys have seen these scenarios many times. We can help.
Medical bills are typically considered unsecured debt because, usually, there is no collateral to secure the money you owe. A creditor cannot repossess medical services you have received. High unsecured debt, including medical debt, is a common reason people seek bankruptcy relief.
In most cases, unsecured debt is discharged under Chapter 7 bankruptcy. It may also be discharged under Chapter 11 or Chapter 13 if a repayment plan is necessary or desirable. We can help you with this. The lawyers at Weintraub & Selth, APC, have extensive experience guiding clients through these options. Do not struggle with your debt any longer.
