I just got a letter stating there was a judgment filed against me for $3000 from an unpaid hospital bill from three years ago. I was uninsured and unable to pay the debt. I was homeless at the time, and my son was undergoing cancer treatment, so paying this bill was not on my priority list.
What does this judgement mean to me? Is there anything I can do to fight this, or is it too late? Should I get a lawyer, or is it set in stone??
