Florissant, CO asked in Collections for Colorado

Q: I don't know whether my son should call on old medical bills or not

My son (26) has 5 collection records totaling about $4500 for an accident while uninsured 6 years ago on his credit report. Majority is for ambulance. Opened 5 - 5.5 years ago. Colorado has 6 year SOL. Should he: 1-still attempt to setup payment plan - won't this reset amount of time on report? 2-ignore and hope they fall off report at 7 yrs 3-pay after they fall off report at 7 yrs 4- hope they don't file a judgement within SOL within 6 yrs. When would they do that?

FYI He has never been contacted. I just found them on his credit report Signed Mom.

A: Justia Q&A is not protected by attorney-client privilege (because not attorney-client relationship exists), so if a lawyer answers your question and provides advice you will be limited in your options (and any attorney can be subject to discipline). In sum, you should contact an attorney in your area to setup a protected relationship.
