The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Founder, Victoria L Collier, Addresses The Legal Needs Of People Working On The Front Lines During COVID-19
Estate & Asset Protection Attorney, Victoria Collier talks about the numerous supermarket employees who are exposed to COVID-19 on a daily basis and are probably not thinking about their legal needs should they contract the virus and potentially not recover.
DECATUR, GA, April 28, 2020: Victoria L. Collier, founder of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new blog on her law firm’s website entitled “Three Legal Documents Necessary For Anyone On The Front Lines Over The Age Of 18,” in which Ms. Collier talks about the basic documents everyone over 18 should have.
Collier writes, “We humans tend to put things off until the very last moment and sometimes until it’s just too late to count. But,” she adds, “COVID-19 has actually provided the motivation for procrastinators to take action and get important legal documents in place just in case. As everyone knows, this virus is highly contagious, has no boundaries and can be deadly. And, even when the most fastidious precautions are taken, people are still getting the virus.”
“When you think about all the brave people working on the front lines,” says Collier, “particularly those in the supermarkets, you have to wonder if they are legally prepared for the worst-case scenario.” She goes on to pose a serious of question. “Do you suppose they all have designated a Financial Power of Attorney, or a Health Care Power of Attorney?” She asks, “Do you suppose these dear people have a will?” According to Collier, “My guess is that the majority of these brave people who are putting their lives on the line everyday so that we can continue to access food, do not have any of these documents. If any of them were to become ill with COVID-19 and God forbid, not recover, would their families and loved ones know what they would want to do with their belongings?”
