Many people have suffered the loss of a job due to an illness. When that happens, your debt can build up very quickly. In addition, many times when you loose a job, you also can loose your health insurance, and then face staggering medical bill due to your illness. When this happens, bankruptcy may very well be your salvation from debt and harassing creditor phone calls.

    Great infographic. In my experience the truly honest but unfortunate debtors in bankruptcy are those with medical debt. Through no fault of their own they have amassed a huge amount of unsecured debt simply because they required medical treatment.
