Filing for Bankruptcy in Fort Lauderdale with Medical Bills

A recent free consultation client came into my Miami office last week and asked me about medical bills.  The client had a medical tragedy that required hospitalization as well as extensive surgeries.  Client didn’t have any medical insurance and when the time to pay the bill came the client couldn’t afford them.

So, the client came into my office and asked me if medical bills were the type of debt that can be discharged through a bankruptcy in Southern Florida, and the answer is YES.  A debtor who lists their medical bills/debt on their bankruptcy schedules will likely have that debt discharged upon completion of either a Chapter 7 or a Chapter 13 bankruptcy in either West Palm Beach, Broward, or Miami-Dade County.

e. It is important to meet with an experienced Miami bankruptcy attorney to determine whether or not your debts will be discharged. To schedule an appointment with an experienced bankruptcy lawyer please contact us at 954-309-5559 or 305-741-5553.
