Will Bankruptcy Harm My Injury Case?

By: Fry | Goehring

Financial hardship is one of the most stressful things a person can go through, even more so if you have also been injured in an accident alongside it. So if you have to file bankruptcy, how can you be sure that the compensation isn’t lost in the process? Luckily we can seek out help from a bankruptcy attorney, or if you already have an attorney even better!

Bankruptcy file

In the realm of personal injury lawsuits, this type of case isn’t uncommon. Both attorneys will work together to understand the exact situation, and how to navigate it so everything is done correctly, with the client’s needs at the forefront.

What About Medical Bills?

Unfortunately, as is the case with most personal injury lawsuits, your medical bills will not be paid until the case settles. There are ways in which your attorney can calm down providers, prevent collections from contacting you, and ensure that your bills are paid at the end of the case. Our goal is to give clients the most comfort as possible.

That means regular communication with insurance companies, health insurance, medical providers, and more. This is all so you do not have to concern yourself with the details, and can continue your life as normally as possible. When it comes to bankruptcy and medical bills, your attorneys will work together to make sure that everything is being done appropriately.

Will I Get to Keep Any of the Settlement Money?

There are some systems in place to protect your settlement money in situations like this. Since each case is different, it is critical to communicate any questions and concerns with your attorney, but again, these cases are pretty common, so you can trust that your attorneys have your back, and will have solutions to a lot of the issues you are facing.

Honesty Is ALWAYS the Best Policy!

The only way your attorneys can help you is if you are completely open and honest with them about your situation. It is better to deal with the issues you are facing with a professional than to hope they go away, and have a harder time in the future.
