Top 7 Reasons People File for Bankruptcy

Medical Expenses

By far, 62%, of all bankruptcies are caused by the high cost of medical care. Even those with health insurance file for bankruptcy as a result of unexpected medical expenses.

Reduced Income from Job

The key word here is “reduced”. It’s no secret that Americans live pretty large compared to other nationalities. Many people don’t save enough for a turn of fortune in their jobs. Combine this with a comfortable lifestyle and it can mean bankruptcy.

Loss of a Job

When you lose your primary source of income, it can take a while to get another job. During this time people still have payments that they have committed to. People are good hearted and tend to continue to honor their debt; sometimes for longer than it takes to get a new job.

Credit Card Debt

Some would say this is a subset of the reasons stated above. It makes sense. Say you have an unexpected medical bill. What option do people have besides putting the expense on their credit card? When you lose your job, you still need to pay for food… so out comes the credit card. Add to this that many Americans have a shopping addiction.

Costly Divorces

Lawyers fees, alimony, and perhaps taking on former spouse’s debt in joint accounts or contracts can sink even the most sturdy financial plan.

Accidents

An accident is an unexpected turn of events. Most people don’t save, or don’t make enough to save for things like automotive breakdowns or accidents that total their vehicle, flood or storm damage, loved ones needing help, or veterinary bills for your best friend.

Student Loans

The cost of a higher education has increased by more than 11% across the board for tuition from 2012 to 2016. The majority of students finance their college education. This can not only take years to pay off, it can also cause a person to file bankruptcy when the other expenses of living keep going higher, and income remains steady.

How We Can Get You an Auto Loan After Bankruptcy

First, as we said, we don’t check your credit score. Since we are a “buy here pay here” car lot, we are the bank. We don’t take your information and run it through a bank or credit union’s system.
