Incurring debt is something no one wants to experience, but a significant portion of Americans do. Unfortunately, in many cases, incurring this debt is not even the person’s fault. For example, all it takes for a person to wind up in serious debt is to develop a medical condition that requires multiple surgeries, a singular expensive surgery, costly medication, or any other type of significant medical expense. This is particularly true for individuals who do not have health insurance.
That said, if you currently find yourself in medical debt, you are most likely looking for a solution. Fortunately, you are in the right place. Please continue reading and reach out to a knowledgeable and dedicated New York City debt collection defense lawyer to learn more about what Rahman Legal can do for you.
Should I hire a lawyer to help me deal with the medical debt I have incurred?
Absolutely, and for multiple reasons. To start, a lawyer can present you with solutions. The first thing you need to understand is that doing nothing is your worst option, and can only make the problem get worse. That said, your best option is to speak with a lawyer. Rahman Legal can help you decide on the best course of action.
For example, in some cases, it is simply best to reach a settlement. In this case, we will negotiate with your debt collector and try to find a more feasible amount of debt for you to pay off. However, in other cases, it may be best to try and fight the debt altogether. Our firm is experienced in fighting off debt collectors, and we are prepared to put that experience to work for you.
Additionally, a lawyer may also assess exactly how debt collectors have approached you and determine whether they have done so illegally. As a consumer, you have rights, and debt collectors are notorious for violating those rights by harassing those who owe (or who they believe owe) money.
If you are being harassed, you may have a valid case against the debt collector in question. If you have any further questions or you want to speak with a lawyer from our firm, give us a call or contact us online today. We are here to help in any way we can.
