What do you think of when you look at this picture? Here we have a 40 year old man taking a close look at the blades underneath his tractor. It looks like he is a Toronto Maple Leaf hockey fan. If you look closer, the black discharge shute has a warning not to put your hands anywhere near the shute. This gentleman has his head stuffed underneath the shute. So much for warning labels.
When this guy decided to cut the grass this morning, he figured it would be the routine lawn care project that he does each weekend. What does this picture illustrate? Could you see yourself in the same situation, checking on something underneath your mower?
Every day we live life expecting to climb into bed at the end of the day without incident. In life, things happen. We take risks and do dangerous things every day. In Jacksonville, Florida, one out of three auto drivers will be injured in an auto accident this year? No, our firm doesn’t represent accident victims but we prepare the wills and trusts to help get you through the times when things go wrong. Doctors help get you healthy and personal injury attorneys help get you compensated for your damages. You find these folks after you have been injured.
However, you need to take care of doing your estate planning documents before an incident occurs. After all, it’s difficult to sign your documents after your hands lose their battle with the mower blades in our photo. We all procrastinate. It’s human nature. Planning a vacation is much more enjoyable than planning for the unpleasant things that happen in life. Don’t delay! Take care of your family while you have the opportunity. Be responsible and contact a local attorney for help.
