Discharging Medical Debt
Not all bankruptcy filings are the result of debts incurred voluntarily. South Carolina residents who enjoyed a stellar credit rating come to Reed Law Firm, P.A., with unpaid medical bills. A sudden illness or injury has depleted their savings and they are now faced with severe collection actions.
Credit ratings do not improve over time if you owe large debts related to unpaid medical bills. As stress builds with harassing creditors, you need to take action and start fresh.
If unpaid medical bills are out of control, bankruptcy may be your best option. Call our Columbia-based firm at 803-807-2565 or our Florence law office at 843-536-0073 today.
Discharge Your Medical Bills by Asserting Your Rights
Medical bills are dischargeable debts. Through a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing, those past due amounts can be significantly reduced or eliminated. The attorneys at Reed Law Firm, P.A., pride themselves on compassionate advocacy. We understand that a physical illness is only made worse by the resulting medical bills. You may recover from your medical problems, but unpaid medical expenses will remain.
Act Now for the Chance to Start Over
Pride may stand in your way in filing bankruptcy over your medical bills. Fear of judgment or criticism may delay what could be an inevitable step. The longer you wait, the more your phone rings. Medical care providers can also take action that other creditors cannot, such as levying against your tax refund or garnishing your paycheck. Bankruptcy would prevent this from happening. The longer you put off a bankruptcy filing, the more a once solid credit rating deteriorates. You can start over. Act now.
