Amy Duggar's husband is learning the hard way that you can't run away from your creditors

The happiness of Amy Duggar's newlywed period is being marred by a huge debt, and now it's going to court.

Duggar's husband Dillon King is being sued by the Bentonville Northwest Medical Center for $51,940.53 after failing to pay for his hospital treatment for over a year.

"The Plaintiff demanded of Defendants that said items be paid for in full on numerous occasions including: at or immediately following the time of providing the various items; within the 30 day period following the providing of said items; on or about June 26, 2015; and on numerous other occasions since said items were provided," the medical center's attorneys wrote in documents submitted to Arkansas' Benton County Circuit Court.

While the court redacted what specific procedures King received due to privacy laws, Duggar's own Instagram revealed he was in a car accident the same week the medical center cites in the case: January 22-25, 2015.

"Well God spared his life!!" Duggar wrote. "He has a broken femur, he has an 18 inch rod in his leg! He had a head on collision yesterday, someone drove directly into his lane and hit him at 45mph... pray for a fast recovery! He is so loved by so many."

The hospital is trying to collect the charges from the original bill, plus $7,791.07 in attorneys' fees, $2,134.54 in interest, and 6 percent interest from March 2, 2016 until the judgment date.
