You can put a claim in with the court. but that does not mean you will get anything.

You gotta be in their vendors list. Did the letter come from a bankruptsy judge or the company itself. Depends on if it is chapter 7 or 11 filing.

But to answer your question, you can't do anything but wait and probably kiss the money good bye.

Why is this here and not in elements of business/ My next question is are there any companies that offer insurance against this? I would think that businesses like credit card companies can't absorb all the money they get stuck for.

No insurance but that is why business's make credit checks before extending credit.

I don't check all the time, but I have checked a few individuals and companies over the years. With genreal contrctors I talk to their subs.
