Are the hospital bills actually yours? If they are, was workers comp supposed to cover them? If you don't think that the bills are your responsibility or the bills are not yours period, I would suggest contacting an attorney to help you with this. Look for FDCPA (fair debt collection practices act) law firms as they may be the best to help you. If you feel that you are truly on the hook for these bills, do some reading on "pay for delete agreements" and also "how to remove collections with HIPPA" as there is supposed to be some loophole there that you can use.
