Unexpected medical bills have the potential to destroy nearly anyone’s financial situation. Medical care is expensive, and the bills can quickly pile up, leaving well-intentioned individuals with stacks of unpaid doctor and hospital bills. If you have accumulated significant medical debt that you are unable to pay or that has resulted in you being unable to pay your other bills, Chapter 7 bankruptcy may be a viable option for getting rid of those bills.

Unsecured debt is the type of debt that is essentially not tied to any property. A home loan, for example, is not dischargeable, because the loan is attached to a home.
