Knowledgeable Legal Advice In Discharging Medical Debt

A serious illness or accident can put you in the hospital for months and can cost thousands of dollars. Follow-up appointments, medications, therapies and other expenses can create a financial crisis, even if you have health insurance. Fortunately, there are solutions.

In facing medical debt, you also may be facing financial hardship. As a result, you and your family may be on financial shaky ground. Bankruptcy may be the only option. Levitt & Slafkes, P.C., in Maplewood, New Jersey, is a skilled law firm that understands bankruptcy law. Our attorneys can help you.

You Can Discharge These Debts In Bankruptcy

Medical debt is “unsecured debt.” This means the only penalties for not paying it are harassment from creditors, late fees and the possibility of being sued for the amount you owe. By contrast, “secured debt” is when you put up collateral such as your house or your car, which can be taken from you if you do not pay the debt.

Unsecured debt such as medical bills and credit card debt can be discharged in a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. This removes the financial burden from your shoulders and gives you an opportunity to get back on track. Our attorneys will discuss your financial situation with you and find the best solution. We will guide you step by step through the entire process.
