Medical Bills Incurred by Minor IN
(Fort Wayne, IN USA)
I am currently being told by a collection agency that i owe over $900.00 in medical bills that occured before i was the age of 18. My mother passed away a year ago, and these debts werent paid, so they are telling me i am now obligated to pay these debts? They gave me the case Bowling v. Sperry as a reference, but from what i understand after reading this, i am NOT obligated to pay. I actually was in contact with a different collections agency in which i had the same situation, and after being told i was a minor at that time, they dropped all collections and told me not to worry about it. I am trying to buy a house, and these collections are hindering the process! Thanks!
