While no one likes to think about death or life-threatening events, unexpected things do happen, and your loved ones will need to know your wishes. At the Law Office of Cheryl Bucker, P.A., we work with clients in Pompano Beach and throughout Florida to make sure they have as much control over their future as possible. Part of an overall strategy to protect yourself and your property is the creation of a living will. Our lawyers can help you formalize your medical wishes within this document.
A Living Will Can Express Your Most Personal Wishes
A living will communicates your desire to have certain life-sustaining medical procedures withheld or withdrawn in the event that you have been diagnosed with an irreversible end-stage condition, a terminal condition or a persistent vegetative state. Your primary or treating physician and another consulting physician must agree on your diagnosis before any life-sustaining medical procedures will be withheld or withdrawn.
Without a living will, decisions about your end-of-life medical care could fall to others, such as doctors or judges, who do not know your preferences. Alternatively, your family members might have to make critical choices about your care, which could cause confusion, guilt or conflict between disagreeing family members.
You never know when you might need a comprehensive estate plan, but by then, it could be too late. Do not leave your loved ones in a difficult situation; contact the Law Office of Cheryl Bucker, P.A., to assist you in handling your affairs. From our office in Pompano Beach, we assist clients in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Lighthouse Point and the surrounding towns.
