It's generally not very pleasant to have to think about the end of your life. Many people will put off planning their estate or creating a will for years. That can leave their families, minor children and assets in legal limbo if they unexpectedly pass. However, there's another aspect of estate planning that can put the planner in a dangerous position if not properly addressed.
Whether you currently have perfect health or a family history of medical issues, you need to take the time to draft a living will. Not only will this help you if you experience a serious medical event or traumatic accident, it can also guide your family as well.
