Best Answer

Yes. The good news is hospitals and medical billing agencies are more likely to accept a payment amount the debtor can afford than are other creditors.

Who pays medical bills in wrongful death suit if estate has no money?

It would be relevant to know how this person died and who is being sued for wrongful death. Conceivably, if the wrongful death suit is won and a payment is made, then the plaintiff in the suit (presumably, a relative of the person who died) would be in a position to pay medical bills, although if the doctors are being sued for wrongful death it may not make sense to also pay their bills. If the suit fails and there is no settlement, and the estate has no money, then the medical bills do not get paid. Not every bill can be collected. Sometimes they have to be written off as noncollectable.
