Medical Debt

Austin Medical Debt Attorney:

In a study conducted by a Harvard medical doctor that was published in the prestigious American Journal of Medicine, it was determined that medical debt was directly or indirectly the cause of more than 60% of all bankruptcies. And this study was conducted before the current recession financially crippled millions of Americans and Texans. In fact, the author predicted that bankruptcies caused by overwhelming medical debt would increase in the coming years. If you are inundated with medical debt, relief is available.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy for Eradicating Medical Debt:

If you have mounds of medical debt and other forms of unsecured debt, the Chapter 7 bankruptcy can provide the relief that you need. In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, there are numerous benefits:

  • The automatic stay goes into effect at the moment of filing.
  • This has the effect of instantly preventing creditors from contacting you for repayment of medical and all other debts.
  • The Chapter 7 bankruptcy will normally wipe out all unsecured medical debt.
  • Additionally, the Chapter 7 bankruptcy will also normally discharge all other unsecured debt, such as credit card debt.
  • Ask your Nachawati bankruptcy attorney if Chapter 7 is right for you.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy and Medical Debt:

The Chapter 13 bankruptcy is well suited for those who have a predictable, steady source of income and who wish to pay back their debts in a manner that they can afford over a period of three to five years. Debts will be consolidated and a repayment plan will be made. Although usually you will be required to pay a percentage of your unsecured debts during the repayment period, at the end all remaining unsecured debt will be discharged by the bankruptcy court.
