Valid grounds for contesting a will

If you seek to contest a will in New York, know that there are specific legal grounds you must use to do so. You cannot, for example, dispute the validity of a will simply because you disagree with how it allocates assets, or because something contained in it surprises you. At Goldberg Sager & Associates, we help many clients navigate complex estate planning issues, and we are well-versed in the four legal grounds under which you made contest a will.

When truckers are distracted

Motorists across New York face hazards every time they take to the roadway, thanks to overcrowded commutes, weather-related headaches and inattentive drivers, among other factors. Just as typical motorists may find themselves losing focus due to cellphones, roadside accidents and related distractions, truckers, too, often get distracted. Per the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, driver distraction is a factor in more than 70 percent of commercial truck-involved accidents, and when commercial trucks and cars collide, the cars are frequently on the losing end.  

Nursing home residents have rights, too

Making the decision to place a loved one in a nursing home is very difficult. Imagine placing your mother into a home and the various things that will concern you. You will worry if the place is going to be a good fit, if she is eating enough and getting exercise. You will also worry about the standard of care at the facility.

What surgeons leave behind

When you enter the operating room to have a procedure performed, you place your life in the capable hands of the well-trained and experienced surgical staff. Upon leaving the OR, however, you may be unknowingly taking home a souvenir from your operation. Surprisingly, medical instruments, such as surgical gauze, forceps and other equipment, have been left behind in patients’ surgical sites. It is only when the patient experiences severe pain after the surgery that medical professionals may discover the object that has been stitched up within the patient.
