Efforts to stop foreclosure hit snag, more expected in New Jersey

Bankruptcy an option for those with medical debt

Unfortunately, many New Jersey residents know all too well that a catastrophic illness brings more than just medical hardship for individuals and their families. First, the serious illness itself must be confronted just to stay alive. But the second part of the equation is the financial turmoil the illness creates, often wiping out personal savings to the extent that there is not enough money to maintain vital medical insurance. And the sad fact is that many do not even have sufficient insurance coverage in the first place. The result is that the inevitable mounting medical debt has forced people who are already suffering through no fault of their own to file for bankruptcy protection, often while they are struggling to defeat the disease that befell them.
