Medical Debt Defense
Serious accidents, illness, disabilities and often death can happen in the blink of an eye without warning. When these events occur, substantial medical bills and debt can rise before you know it that are above your financial means and abilities to pay. Medical debt is handled like credit card debt, despite medical treatment being necessary to sustain life. Regardless of how you got into your current financial medical debt, it is time to learn your rights against medical providers and medical debt collectors and in the process explore your options. Getting you on the road to financial recovery is what we strive to achieve on your behalf at Johnson & Bryan. Don’t let the medical debt collectors harass you by charging late fees and interest which are not allowed by law.
The attorneys at Johnson & Bryan will zealously fight the medical providers and medical debt collectors force them to prove their medical debt related lawsuits and that they are actually entitled to collect the on the medical debt. Remember…it was the medical providers and medical debt collectors who filed a lawsuit. The burden is on the medical providers and medical debt collectors to prove their case.
Ultimately, Johnson & Bryan will either force the medical providers and medical debt collectors to dismiss their lawsuit due to lack of evidence substantiating their claims, or alternatively negotiate a settlement of the medical debt at a substantially reduced amount which you can afford to pay under your personal economic situation.
Hiring an attorney at Johnson & Bryan is the first step to achieving peace of mind and reclaiming your life both financially and mentally.
Medical providers and medical debt collectors firms with their army of cronies file these medical debt related lawsuits in hopes you do not respond, and in the process catch you by surprise so they can obtain a default judgment. A default judgment is a form of binding conclusion by the Court granting an award of money in favor of the medical provider and lender when you do not answer the lawsuit. With this default judgment the medical provider or lender can attempt to garnish (i.e., deplete) your bank accounts and/or place a lien on your home.
Additionally, the medical provider and lender can have police officers come to your home and sell non-exempt assets such as TVs, equipment and other miscellaneous recreational items you worked hard for in life. Default judgments are essentially a piece of paper, but can turn into a very embarrassing and humiliating situation if not given the proper consideration and attention.
Hiring an attorney at Johnson & Bryan will ensure that the medical provider and lender do not obtain a default judgment and prevent these other harassing and embarrassing collection efforts from occurring.
