I won't sign anything without getting a native speaker to have a look over it first, as I've done in the past with Belgiummum.

If they don't speak English I will be sure to give one of you a ring. I have both your numbers.
I'd be happy to help. I'll be in Neuchatel tomorrow lunchtime if you want me to look over anything.

Re: Wife's employer didn't take out accident insurance (I think)

Following Shorrick's excellent post I did some digging and actually translated some of the letter and found the representative and the contact details which are on the Hospital website.

I will give this chap a call later to clear up the confusion. If that fails I will call the office des poursuites.

No reply from the employer.

Looks like that wasn't my last post as this has reared it's ugly head again.

I got a bill from the office de poursuites today for my wife for an unpaid bill to the hospital. She hasn't received a single invoice from the hospital, yet received a letter from debt collectors.

Her employer not paying her bills is another matter altogether.

Anyway I will probably contact her employer and see what's up and contact the debt collection agency as well.

I just can't believe without a single invoice it's jumped straight to this.
You only have a few days to object to the accusation. You need to photocopy the letter and write on it "Rechtsvorschlag erhoben" sign it and send it back before the 5 days are up after you received it.
Do that today! What is the correct term in French meaning Objection made! Maybe "Proposition législative soulevées"

As for the debt collectors, unfortunately they are more difficult, as legally they are selling "Black lists" but you might be able to convince them it's not your bill to pay.

Maybe the hospital sent the bills to the employer and she convinced them to send them to you? I think you could visit the Employment Tribunal, and get this employer before a judge, she might then change her attitude.

Not if it came from a debt collector as opposed to the betreibung / poursuite.

Opposition totale. But again that doesn't work with a letter.

It's not a huge amount so I will probably just end up paying it myself. I'm sick of the whole situation and was hoping that it was over.

I think I'd be inclined to do the same if the amount is really so small. The important thing here in my opinion is to make sure that you don't get listed at the Office des Poursuites as having 'bad' debts as this could have implications for you in the future.

if you do end up doing this, I'd then start proceedings against the employer as they've not met their obligations with regards to insurance coverage.

Re: Wife's employer didn't take out accident insurance (I think)

Just had another thought. It might be worth making sure that all the other hospital bills have been paid. It may just be that this one slipped through the net but if the employer 'forgot' some of the other bills along the way you might end up with some more 'nasty shocks' falling into your letter box.

I don't really have the time or patience for that

That's a good point. I will ask when they call me back later today.
