How can I stop unpaid workers compensation medical bills from ruining my credit?

“When I seek out professional advice, I don’t want B.S. I want it straight up, with no double talk. I figure do also. I always use plain English, with no sugarcoating no B.S. lawyer talk, and no double talk - just old fashioned, unsweetened, unvarnished truth-just the way that I would want it.” -Bill Turley

California Workers Compensation Attorney Work Injury Lawyer 

The First Step

When handling your work injury case, nothing matters more than the honest truth. Nothing. You must be straightforward and honest about your case. I have seen many instances where a client will sugarcoat their injury and the courts throw out the case. Why? All because they were not honest from the get-go.

The Next Step

If you've been injured on the job, you probably have a ton of questions. I understand. You are concerned about your family and your livelihood. My suggestion is the next step you should take before anything else is to read my book, Win Your Injury Case. I wrote it to help folks like you, good people who got hurt on the job. You can order a free copy and I will cover the shipping too.

Will unpaid workers compensation medical bills ruin my credit?

Sometime seriously injured workers in California are concerned that the non-payment of medical bills by the workers compensation insurance company will adversely affect their credit. The short answer is that it can if you don't know the law.

Under California law, medical creditors can not pursue you directly for the non-payment of medical bills. If they harass or threaten to affect your credit you need to advise them of the law. If they continue to harass you then you have a potential legal action against them.

A good California workers compensation lawyer should be able to effectively shield you from being harassed by medical creditors. Unpaid medical bills related to your California workers compensation case should never affect your credit. Instead, medical creditors must seek payment through the Workers Compensation Appeals Board.
