Indiana Attorneys Providing a Way to Survive Medical Bills and Dental Expenses
Medical debts lead many to seek bankruptcy protection
There are many ways that people get over their heads in medical debt: a major illness, a lack of health insurance, a catastrophic injury, a lapse in coverage due to job loss, or a necessary medical procedure that was not covered by insurance. No matter how your medical expenses came to be, filing bankruptcy will help you reduce or eliminate them.
At The Law Office of Weiss, Schmidgall and Hires, P.C. in Merrillville, Indiana, we offer a free consultation with an experienced bankruptcy attorney to discuss your options if you have unpaid medical bills or dental expenses. Our attorneys serve clients in Lake and Porter counties of Indiana, including those as far away as South Bend and Lafayette. We also work with clients in the Chicagoland area of Illinois.
Usually healthcare bills can be eliminated
Most medical and dental bills are considered to be unsecured debts. This means that you can likely discharge all of the debt by filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection or restructrue payments on most of it through a Chapter 13 filing.
What can a health care provider do if I don’t pay medical or dental bills?
Clinics, hospitals and other health care providers are becoming increasingly aggressive about collecting debts. In addition to harassing you with phone calls and sending you threatening letters, the provider could sue you to obtain a court judgment against you. With that judgment on file, the provider could garnish your wages, freeze your bank account or even attach a lien on your house. Filing bankruptcy will put an immediate stop to a wage garnishment or a frozen bank account. In most cases, our lawyers can also remove liens. The sooner you contact a lawyer, the more options you will have.
