Medical Bill Relief Lawyers in Los Angeles
Eliminating Medical Bill Debt Through Bankruptcy
Your health is important, and you must do whatever you can to protect it. Sometimes that means incurring substantial debt in order to get the proper treatment. Health insurance may only pay a small portion of the amount due, leaving you with a mountain of debt.
It may surprise you to learn that next to credit card bills, medical expenses are one of the leading causes of bankruptcy. At Resnik Hayes Moradi LLP, our Los Angeles debt relief attorneys can help you develop a plan for your unpaid medical bills. We can help you file either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, giving you a chance to get back on your feet again.
To learn how we can help you eliminate all your past medical bills, call (213) 344-0043 and schedule your free initial consultation.
What Happens to Medical Bills in Bankruptcy?
Whether you were struck with a sudden illness, your medical coverage lapsed due to a job loss or you needed a medical procedure that was not covered by insurance, you have options for taking care of medical debt. When you file Chapter 7 bankruptcy, most medical bills will be completely eliminated. With Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you will pay what you can afford over three to five years. At the end of the designated timeframe, any remaining medical debt is discharged.
You Should Never Have to Choose Between Your Health & Your Finances
Hospitals, clinics, and other health care providers are focused on collecting payment. In addition to calling you and sending threatening letters, they can file a lawsuit with the goal of obtaining a judgment against you. A judgment may allow them to garnish your wages, freeze your bank accounts, and more.
Take the first step toward financial recovery by contacting our Los Angeles medical debt relief lawyers at our offices in Los Angeles or Sherman Oaks. Many good people are struggling with medical expenses. You are not alone. We can help.
