Santa Ana Medical Debt Attorneys
Serving Clients Across the State of California
Given the amount of medical debt that can be accumulated, and how quickly, anyone can be financially wiped out by medical debt virtually overnight. It does not matter how much money you have. For those with little or no resources, bankruptcy is a simple and effective way to get a fresh start. But what about the consumer who has been able to accumulate some wealth, such as a house or other assets? Should they be forced into bankruptcy or pay huge bills that are incomprehensible?
They may not even be able to file bankruptcy! What are they to do?
No One is Immune to Medical Debt
Have you ever been able to figure out your medical bill? If so, you are among the very few, and you are probably wrong. There is nothing wrong with insisting a medical provider properly establish what is due. Why are you charged a different amount than insurance companies? Were you told what the charges were going to be? Were you shocked at the charges?
The time has come for consumers to not blindly accept what the medical industrial complex says you owe!
Fitzgerald & Campbell aggressively asserts all defenses available to you, including statutes of limitations, lack of proof, and others. We will also assert all consumer protection laws, such as collection harassment violations.
