Question: I'm being sued over some medical debt that I got following a car accident. The accident was my fault and I've had to go to a number of doctors. I've seen a surgeon, radiologist, orthopedist and a podiatrist. I also want plastic surgery.
I have bills from North Fulton Hospital and Northside Hospital. And I've gone to some clinics. I'm seeing a pain doctor and I owe a bill for an anesthesiologist. My medications are pretty expensive and I take a lot of pills.
The doctor bills are huge and there's no way I can pay them. I work in Cumming and I live in Johns Creek. I sell insurance.
I really don't have much other debt. I have a little bit of credit card debt and I rent a house and own a car.
I want to know if I can get rid of my medical debt to the doctors and the hospitals and clinics if I file bankruptcy. I really don't want to go to court for my lawsuit. What should I do becasue I need medical debt relief?
