Living Wills

Lubbock Living Wills Attorneys

It’s scary to think about getting sick or having an accident that could leave you unable to take care of yourself. But it can happen.

A living will is a legally compelling document that says what you want for medical treatment if you can’t communicate it yourself. It’s not the same as a regular will, which is about who gets your stuff when you die.

Some people think they don’t need a living will until they’re old or sick. But the truth is, accidents or health problems can happen at any age.

Beck Law Firm’s Lubbock living will attorneys can create clear medical treatment directives in critical moments to help ease the pain of your loved ones.

Why Do I Need a Living Will in Texas?

Terminal patients can’t always talk or express themselves. Anyone concerned that they won’t receive the end-of-life care they desire needs a living will.

If you have strong feelings about how you want to be treated medically, like whether you’d want to be on life support for a long time, having a living will is a good idea.

Without one, your family and doctors might not know what you want, leading to long and painful arguments about your care. Creating a living will ensures your loved ones won’t have to guess what you want them to do.

Texas Living Wills Requirements and Components

  • At least 18 years old
  • Married, or a member of the armed forces of the United States, an auxiliary of the armed forces of the United States, or the United States Maritime Service
