Bankrupt

It occurred to me that if my mother gets injured, a series of events may occur:

1. Cannot work, and loses her job
2. Cannot pay bills, and defaults on mortgage
3. Loses her house and becomes bankrupt

If there is no coverage for a particular injury or illness, a person will most likely not be able to pay very much in medical bills while paying other bills. In this case, the person will either lose their job and/or become bankrupt.
