the victim wanted nothing to do with attorneys nor establishing any sort of will and/or assigning a trusted family member with power of attorney. Now the victim's wife is dealing with the loss of her husband, and she is now having to lawyer up for probate
(PRWEB) October 09, 2014
The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, "A few weeks ago we had an incredibly heartbreaking call from the wife of a former power plant worker who had died from mesothelioma because of nearly three decades of exposure to asbestos. The heartbreaking part was the victim wanted nothing to do with attorneys nor establishing any sort of will and/or assigning a trusted family member with power of attorney. Now the victim's wife is not only trying to deal with the loss of her husband, but she is now having to lawyer up for probate court and her children are fighting amongst themselves over who should get what.”
On the topic of power of attorney, according to CNN Money, "No one is immune from aging or the loss of mental clarity that may come with it. And you're never immune to health crises that may leave you unable to handle the business of your life: paying bills, managing investments or making key financial decisions.
"Granting someone you trust the power of attorney allows that person -- known as your "agent" or "attorney in fact" -- to manage your financial affairs if you are unable to do so. Your agent is empowered to sign your name and is obligated to be your fiduciary -- meaning they must act in your best financial interest at all times and in accordance with your wishes."
