Not all car accidents are fatal, but even those that seem minor can have long-term consequences. Even when no physical injuries occur, the trauma and mental distress of the incident can cause serious harm.
If you drive to and from work every day, you understand how stressful navigating high-traffic areas in Texas can be. You might adhere to all traffic regulations and try your best to stay alert and cautious behind the wheel. However, if a distracted driver is nearby, there may be little to nothing you can do to avoid a collision. Distracted drivers cause many fatal collisions in this state and across the country.
Like most Texas parents, you love each of your children fully. Of course, you may not love the way that they have bickered and fought their entire lives. You may have pictured your children being the best of friends, but that did not turn out to be the case as sibling rivalry continued to get the best of them.
You spent a significant part of your life working to earn money. Perhaps you saved and invested so that you would have a little something-or a lot of something-to leave to your children. Like many in Texas who have this dream, it may give you joy to think of your children and grandchildren benefiting from your hard work and sacrifices. You may be ready to create an estate plan that will allow them to reap those benefits.
