Personal Injury is a general term that includes any type of case where a person is injured as a result of another person’s negligence. This includes bodily injury or defamation of character. Examples of bodily injuries are injuries that result from car accident, truck accident, train accidents, bike accidents, dog bites, construction accidents, electrical accidents, premise accidents, or products that cause injuries. There are many more categories of compensable accidents. Defamation of character is where a person publishes a statement that injures another person’s reputation.

Probate and/or estate matters often involve court proceedings to carry out the last will and testament of a deceased person. Generally speaking, when a testator creates a will, a court proceeding is started to administer the estate and carry out the wishes of deceased person according to their will. Similarly, if the deceased person left no will, default legal rules apply to ensure the property of the deceased person is distributed to the heirs. If an individual maintained their property in trust at their death, another set of legal rules apply.

In addition to court involvement to administer a decedent’s estate, often times there must be communication with financial institutions, creditors of the estate, debtors to the estate, family members, and heirs and beneficiaries. There may be other alternatives to probate court depending on the circumstances. To discuss a probate or estate matter, please call our office.

In the event a deceased person held all of their property held in a living trust, the trust estate must also be administered to ensure that the settlor’s wishes are followed, claims are paid, debts are settled, taxes are paid, assets are collected or recovered and the beneficiaries receive what they are entitled to from the estate or trust. Similarly, this often involves communicating with financial institutions, creditors of the estate, debtors of the estate, family members, and heirs and beneficiaries. There may be strategic reasons for opening an estate even if all of the decedent’s property was held in trust at their death.
