A Pennsylvania living will is a directive in the event you are incapacitated or otherwise unable to make a final healthcare decision. Our attorneys can help you reduce confusion for your loved ones by creating a living will for you. Contact our office today for a free consultation with one of our skilled attorneys.
If you want to ensure your wishes are carried out in the event you become incapacitated, or if you want to have the ability to designate someone to make decisions on your behalf, then you want a living will. A living will can also avoid family strife and turmoil, such as that by Terri Schiavo.
Those familiar with Terri Schiavo recall that she became incapacitated with no living will. A bitter, expensive, and drawn out legal battle ensued between her husband, who contended she had confided that she did not want to be placed on artificial life support if she suffered permanent brain damage, and her parents, who claimed she was a devout Catholic and would never consent to anything that would end her life.
This issue could have been avoided if Terri Schiavo had a living will.
A valid living will can help erase the uncertainty for your loved ones. You owe it to yourself and to them to make your wishes clear. Call 412-261-2620 or contact us online to schedule a free initial consultation.
