Medical debt relief is possible for Tennessee residents

As this blog explained in a previous post, people have rights when it comes to medical debt collection. This post explained, that much like other types of debt, medical debt is covered by the FDCPA. This means that creditor collection agencies must abide by certain rules when collecting medical debt. In addition to these protections from creditors, Tennessee residents struggling with medical debt also have legal options.

Our firm understands how quickly medical debt can pile up. Medical costs have steadily risen for decades and there is no end in sight. This means that even small medical issues can cost people thousands of dollars. Larger medical scares and major medical emergencies can easily wipe out people's savings and max out people's credit cards in a matter of days, weeks or months. Even with insurance, out-of-pocket costs quickly add up.

Those struggling with this type of debt can turn to our firm for help. In many cases, filing for bankruptcy can give people a fresh start. Like other types of consumer debt, medical bills are unsecured debt. This means that in most bankruptcy proceedings, medical debt is eligible for discharge.

Our law firm has experience filing these types of cases in Tennessee. Our compassionate staff and attorneys understand that those with overwhelming medical debt usually have been dealing with major medical concerns and that these financial difficulties just add to their stress. We can help guide people through the bankruptcy process to ensure that they receive the debt relief they so desperately need. While some people may see bankruptcy as a failure, we see it as a new beginning.
