I’ve asked Chris Moander to post a little something on my blog. I think you’ll find his comments about Debt Collection helpful. It ties into Personal Injury well. In Wisconsin, because the at-fault insurance company doesn’t pay damages (wage loss, medical expenses etc.) as they occur it is up to the victim to submit the bills to health insurance or rely on the kindness of friends and family or savings to get through the hard times.
If a car accident victim, for instance, didnt’ have the help of a personal injury attorney from the start of the case some bills may go into collection and ultimately lawsuits.
Enter the Debt Collectors and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA).
Keep an eye out for Chris’ guest post.
