Guiding You Toward A Brighter Financial Future

Protecting financial health when medical debt becomes a problem

On Behalf of | Oct 4, 2018 | Medical Debt

Each day presents new opportunities and experiences for the residents of Chattanooga. While many individuals may embrace the positive events that happen in their lives, they may also fear the repercussions that accompany the negative happenings that afflict them and their loved ones. In particular, the diagnosis of a serious medical condition can be a significantly emotional, physical, and financial hardship.

An accident, injury, or illness can come out of nowhere, blindsiding a person who assumed their health was strong and who was not prepared for the costs that would be associated with their unexpected recuperation. They may watch their savings disappear as they pay off their hospital bills, finance their medications, and seek to borrow money to get the treatments and therapy they need to survive.

In the end, an unexpected medical event can leave a person without the money they had set aside for retirement and other important life events. Not only may such an event rob them of their savings, but it may also cause them to fall into a slippery financial hole with regard to medical debt and loans.

Sometimes, it is not possible to prevent a medical emergency, but, when one happens, a victim should not fear facing their financial battles alone. Medical debt is a serious issue for many Americans and, fortunately, attorneys can offer these individuals support as they look for ways to protect their financial health. Attorney Mark Young and his legal team are available and prepared to guide new medical debt clients through their legal options for managing and eliminating their medical bills and debts.
