Bankruptcy and Medical Debt
There is a prevailing myth about bankruptcy that people who file are doing so because they are careless or taking advantage of the system. In reality, most people who file for bankruptcy are doing so because of an unavoidable and unforeseen crisis such as a medical problem.
Filing for bankruptcy stops creditors from taking action against you and from even contacting you. For many struggling with medical debt, Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the best solution, because it completely wipes out unsecured debt.
To explore all of your options for eliminating medical debt, it is important to consult with an experienced bankruptcy lawyer.
