When most people hear the word “bankruptcy,” they think of legally-protected ways for companies or individuals to escape or reduce debt. There are multiple types of bankruptcy, including Chapters 7, 9, 11, 12 and 13, and each applies to different types of people, corporations and circumstances.
One nefarious use of bankruptcy protection is when large corporations use it as a means to avoid paying for legal verdicts and settlements in lawsuits where they have hurt people.
It takes skilled and diligent attorneys to follow the paper trails of companies that seek to hide their assets from debtors and the courts. Wilkes & McHugh has spent more than a decade studying these evasive measures, learning how to track and pinpoint those responsible, and find where they have hidden their funds. We have challenged large corporations and powerful people to fight for the rights of victims.
Victims who find that the nursing home, hospital, product manufacturer or other corporation that may have caused them or a loved one harm has sought bankruptcy protection can rest assured that Wilkes & McHugh, P.A. will brave the complex world of bankruptcy for you. And if you are a lawyer whose case has stalled because of bankruptcy on the part of the defendant, we may be able to help. Call us today for more information.
