Legal Resolutions to Make for 2021

If you are over 18 years old, have a current healthcare and financial Power of Attorney (POA) in place.

Incapacity and mature age are not the only reasons for this. For example, a frequent traveler may need assistance in handling their affairs in their absence, especially if they are unmarried. There are more uses for these documents than just serious situations and it is pretty easy to revoke or update these as needed.

Other situations allow for POAs to be limited. This is something that Menomonee Falls Estate Planning Attorney can help you manage in the case of real estate closing. For example, the POA can enable you to be represented at a real estate closing in another city. In this example, if the homeowner has it only under their name and is married, the spouse would need to obtain a POA to take legal or financial actions related to that property.

A medical POA is both a durable and a springing POA. Durable allows the POA to stay in effect unless a cancellation is specified. The springing aspect only allows the POA to take effect if specific conditions take place. As long as the principal is of sound mind and body, the medical POA will not be triggered. You can have different POAs for each unique situation and appoint different agents to hold them as well.

When there is a sudden crisis, having a current health care and financial POA saves everyone headaches and heartaches by providing clarity, saving time and saving money.

At Menomonee Falls Personal Injury Attorney, we want you to be prepared for injuries and accidents if they are to occur.

This may be obvious, but if you or someone you know has suffered a personal injury, immediately seek medical attention. Many injuries are not immediately obvious such as brain or soft tissue injuries. In addition, some jurisdictions now require that you seek medical attention within a specified period of time, or you lose your ability to present a claim.

Our role is that once you have received the appropriate medical attention, we can advise you on whether or not you have a valid personal injury claim. Best of all, we can work on a “contingency” basis, meaning that if you get paid, then that is how we get paid. The cost will never be out-of-pocket!

You should have a law firm prepared. This is where Menomonee Falls Law Firm can fulfill your needs.

With our comprehensive law firm, we have multiple areas of expertise that can serve your specialized requests. We can evaluate potential costs and during our initiation consultation, we are able to give you a ballpark estimate. Reliability is very important, and our legal team will be sure to communicate with you in a timely manner to serve you efficiently.
