A Survivor’s Legal Guide, What You Need To Know About Death Benefits, Claims And Inheritance Laws

The death of a loved one is probably the most difficult situation we must all face at some point in our lives. If the death is the result of advanced age or a serious illness, we often have stood by and watched as our loved ones were reduced to a mere shadow of their former selves. Even worse, if possible, is when a death is unexpected or the result of a careless accident or someone else’s negligence. In any case, the death of a husband, wife, parent, grandparent or child can turn everything you knew upside down.

As if the emotional upheaval and sadness weren’t enough, now there are many business issues that need to be addressed. What about insurance? Is there a will? What benefits are due to you? Is there cause to bring a wrongful death suit? Although the last thing you want to think about at a time like this is business, the truth is these things need to be handled. For 25 years, Houston-area attorney Joe Stephens and his associates at The Stephens Law Firm have been helping surviving family members pick up the pieces of their lives when they are at their most vulnerable.

In A Survivor’s Legal Guide – What You Need to Know About Death Benefits, Claims and Inheritance Laws, Mr. Stephens outlines all of the details and guides you through the process. By following his suggestions, you can have some peace of mind knowing that the business is under control, thereby giving you some breathing room to come to terms with your loss.

Nothing can ever make up for the loss of a loved one. The best we can do is to try to accept the void and learn to move forward. The information Mr. Stephens offers here, however, can make it easier for you to get the business out of the way today so you can focus on what’s most important – tomorrow.
