Thank you for the additional information.
I am afraid this is a problem. Written contracts are used to bind people to the contracts they enter and sign. What this means is that if you signed a contract with the cable company for 3 years and there is no cancellation clause in that contract, courts and the laws state that by you signing that contract you agreed to all of the terms in the contract and to honor those terms. I am afraid there is no provision in the GA laws that allow someone to cancel a contract even for when they have suffered a disabling accident.
The only way to terminate the contract would be if the cable company somehow breached the contract first and refused to cure that breach. Absent a breach by the cable company, the only way for you out of this contract early, for which you are personally liable, would be to continue to negotiate some buyout with them or they will simply send the bill to collections and it will continue to appear on your credit report as a negative mark. Generally, they will not sue you over this small of a bill, but they will ruin your credit for it.
Had the bill only been in the company name, you would have been in better shape because you could have then placed the business into bankruptcy
and wound up and they would have gotten nothing from you personally. Or you could have just let them sue the business if there were no assets in the LLC and let them get a judgment which they would never have been able to collect against the LLC because it had no assets for them to collect from.
