When Bankruptcy Might Be the Best Option for Dealing with Medical Debt

Fox59 found families all over central Indiana “are suffering the heartache and stress of enormous medical debt. Last month, we uncovered nearly one in every four Hoosiers in region had medical debt in collections. It can ruin your credit and your life.”

The question: So when is bankruptcy a good option?

Bankruptcy attorney Mark Zuckerberg said he said he sees people at the end of their rope all the time.

“I’ve had a couple of clients commit suicide, because they felt that there was just no other way,” he said.

But now, he said, it’s time to fight back, remove the stigma of bankruptcy, and help people learn more about the process.

“It can be a good thing. It’ll save your home. It’ll stop the phone calls. It’ll get rid of stress. And it also may be a way to start rebuilding your credit.”
