My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: Maryland
I currently owe I'd say around $4,000 in medical bills and it's spread out to various Drs and 2 hospitals. My oldest bill is a year old but most of them are only months old. Some of them are in collections but not all. My problem is that I am unable to work as I have yet to find out what is causing my unidentified pain that has gotten me into all this debt which is still accumulating since I keep having to see new Drs. I literally have no money to send them since I don't have a job. I have no family to help me out either. Is there anything I can do? Is it just inevitable that I will be sued? Will they really sue someone who has no job or any money? What would happen if they win? I'm really worried about this as my name is on my fathers house along with his name. Can they take the house if I am the Co-owner if I get sued? I live with my father but he doesn't have any extra money to help me with these bills so I am really at a loss of what to do. Anyone have any suggestions for me? Would writing them to explain I don't have a job help anything? Everyone keeps telling me not to worry, what can they do to you, you don't have a job. But I am worried. Thanks for any advice you can give, I appreciate it.
