Hesitation in estate planning can lead to problems down the road

It's not easy to have conversations with family members about the future. You may be hesitant because you do not want to think about what could happen in the future or you don't want to make anyone uncomfortable. Perhaps you assume that your loved ones know what you would want, and estate planning is really unnecessary. In reality, it's important to have these conversations sooner than later.

Truck accident victims can often pursue vicarious liability claim

In the blink of an eye, a semi-truck driver can cause a catastrophic accident that leaves victims with serious injuries. All too often these injuries are disabling, sometimes even leaving a victim paralyzed. These individuals, in addition to those who are fortunate to survive a truck accident with less serious injuries, can face extensive damages. Medical expenses and lost wages can threaten a victim's financial stability, and the physical and emotional pain and suffering can be overwhelming. Taken together, these damages can leave victims feeling stressed out and fearful of their future.
