Estate planning provides several personal and financial benefits

Surprisingly, most people in West Virginia and nationwide do not have a will. A Gallup survey in 2016 indicates that most people also do not know how they would like to have their assets distributed after death. This fact makes it even more important that people consult with an estate planning attorney to set up at least the basic beginnings of a workable plan.

Do you know who could contest your loved one's will?

Though your loved one may have created a will before his or her death, that document does not necessarily mean that the estate administration will be free from complications. In some cases, an individual could choose to contest a will, which could lead the estate into litigation. In these cases, the disputing party or parties must provide a valid legal reason, and, if you believe that a high chance for such a dispute exists, you may wish to determine how you could prepare for such an event.

Some remedies may help stem car accidents caused by DUI drivers

Can individual citizens, police officers, businesses and police departments make an appreciable difference in improving safety on West Virginia highways and roads? When they work together for that common goal, the answer is yes, according to the Huntington Regional Highway Safety Program. That organization recently held an event to honor individuals and entities that were particularly effective in highway safety and efforts to reduce the incidence of car accidents in 2016.

State resources needed to limit car accidents with pedestrians

What does a municipality in West Virginia or elsewhere do when a heavily traveled roadway is also used by pedestrians who must cross it to get to and back from work? For starters, the government may want to construct sidewalks and crosswalks to give pedestrians a safer route than they now possess. Car accidents involving pedestrians cannot be contained without basic traffic controls and other measures necessary for the safe flow of pedestrian traffic.

Can you drive after a DUI in West Virginia?

An arrest for drunk driving can come with a myriad of complicated penalties if you are convicted, including the loss of your driving privileges. If you cannot drive, you cannot get to work, take your children to school or even take care of your basic needs, such as going to the doctor or the grocery store.
