Bankruptcy Lawyer Bryan W. Stone answers the question “Do I need an attorney to file bankruptcy?”
One of leading causes of bankruptcy has long been medical debt. The high cost of healthcare in this country is widely understood and, should a medical emergency arise, it can be difficult if not impossible to recover financially. Though experts have long seen the connection between medical bills and bankruptcy, many were under the impression that the Affordable Care Act would lead to big changes, that by providing health insurance coverage to the uninsured, financial stress from medical expenses would be greatly reduced. Unfortunately for millions of Americans, that appears not to be the case.
