Medical Debt: The Most Common Reason For Bankruptcy

Illness and injury are not anyone's fault. If you have medical bill debt, you shouldn't feel guilty about it. There's nothing you can do; health care is necessary. It is also the primary reason that people in the U.S. file bankruptcy.

Luckily, there is something you can do about medical debt. Under the law, you can discharge this debt in bankruptcy. The attorneys at Woodall & Woodall can help. We have represented more than 20,000 people in south Georgia. You can rely on us to get you through bankruptcy, too.

From our office in Valdosta, we frequently travel to surrounding communities including Albany and Thomasville to ensure our clients have access to our services.

Bankruptcy Can Take Care Of Medical Bills

Filing bankruptcy will eliminate or reduce your medical debt. Under Chapter 7, all of your medical debt will likely be discharged. Under Chapter 13, medical bills will be discharged without paying anything or you will repay only a small portion of them during the repayment plan. When you have completed the plan, remaining debt may be discharged.

Medical bills can pile up for numerous reasons, including:

  • Expensive medication
  • A sick child
  • An injury
  • High copays
  • Many doctor visits
  • A lengthy or chronic illness
  • No or poor health insurance

All medical expenses are usually considered unsecured debt and therefore are eligible for the bankruptcy discharge.
