Debts owed to doctors, dentists, surgeons, and hospitals account for a lot of financial trouble for Minnesotans. The attorneys at Martin & Hedervare have helped many families in St. Paul and Minneapolis get their finances in order after a medical emergency wiped out their savings.
Medical debts can lead to the same kinds of judgments and garnishments as other types of debts, even before the health crisis that led to them has ended. The costs of medication and continued medical visit copayments can strain a budget to the breaking point.
