Directive to Physician
Draft an Enforceable Living Will in Katy with the Help of Hunt Law Firm
A living will, or “directive to physician,” establishes your decisions regarding your medical care at the end of your life. People often have strong opinions regarding whether they would like to be kept alive and prolong their life for their grieving loved ones, or to pass quietly if there is no hope of healing. Depending on your wishes and values, you can decide whether you’d like life-sustaining treatment to be administered or not. While it may seem like it would be sufficient to tell your loved ones you do or do not want to live hooked up to machines, a living will is the only way to ensure your wishes are followed. To ensure your end-of-life wishes will be respected, you should seek legal guidance to draft your living will.
Without a living will drafted, your next-of-kin may argue on whether life-sustaining treatment should be administered or not. This fight can even go to court, should neither side budge. It can be quite a thorny issue, as it is often very emotional and sometimes controversial to “pull the plug.” You should have directions in place for what should be done when you can’t speak for yourself.
