My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: Florida
My father-in-law died October 2012. In January 2013, the attorney's office representing his small estate sent my husband a 'statement of claim' dating back to 2008. The claimant was from the local hospital for $1024 for medical services dating back to 2-19-2008. Isn't there some type of Statute of Limitation? The attorney office never advised my husband of any such Statute, is an attorney's receptionist even knowledgeable of this detail? I am curious, recalling from Suze Orman show, there is such a Statute regarding credit card debt...but would like to know if this is applicable to medical debt...and if so, what is the Florida Statute concerning medical debt.
