What about Bankruptcy?

You might be considering bankruptcy if you have a large amount of medical bills and no ability to pay. The proceeds of your personal injury case are considered assets in a bankruptcy. This can have a dramatic effect on your injury case. Please discuss this with your lawyer before declaring bankruptcy. A good lawyer can usually keep the credit collector wolves at bay until your case is over. Far too many folks seek bankruptcy protection when the amount of medical bills and debts don’t merit this drastic remedy. There are too many unscrupulous bankruptcy attorneys/vultures that are all too willing and eager to file your bankruptcy for a low flat rate when what they should be doing is advising folks to seek credit counseling or negotiate their debts.
