California Medical Debt Defense Attorney
No One is Immune From Medical Debt
Given the amount of medical debt that can be accumulated and how quickly, anyone can be wiped out financially virtually overnight. And 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?
California’s Premier Medical Collection Lawsuit Attorney
Medical Collection Lawsuits: 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 fee than everyone else? Were you told what the fee was going to be? Were you shocked at the charges? The time has come for consumers to not blindly accept what some corporate medical billing service alleges.
FITZGERALD & CAMPBELL will aggressively assert all defenses available to you. These include statutes of limitation, unconscionability, lack of proof, and others. We will also assert all consumer protection laws such as collection harassment violations.
