Medical Power of Attorney Morrisville, MO

Reidar Hammond logo

The law considers you an adult once you turn 18 in the US. As a result, you can vote and join the armed forces, among a number of other benefits. One of these benefits is being legally allowed to make your own decisions. From selling a business to opening a line of credit, many actions require you to make your own decisions. However, what if you fall victim to a medical condition or come down with a disease that incapacitates you? That’s where a medical power of attorney can be handy. It’s a document that a power of attorney lawyer drafts that will allow someone else to make medical decisions for you.

Financial Power of Attorney

A power of attorney document comes in two kinds: medical power of attorney and financial power of attorney. The two are similar, but there are some differences.

A financial power of attorney gives someone the power to make financial decisions for you. Therefore, they can buy or sell assets and make investments. Usually, this person is a close relative or trusted friend. However, it could be anybody, including a lawyer. Therefore, it’s important to pick the right person to serve as your agent. A financial power of attorney can come in two types: general and durable. The key difference there is that a durable power of attorney will continue to work after you die.

A medical power of attorney is different from a financial power attorney. Instead of finances, it covers medical issues. In other words, medical power of attorney allows someone to make medical decisions on your behalf. As a result, they can make serious medical decisions. For example, they can decide whether or not to resuscitate you. Therefore, it’s even more important to make sure your agent is a close family member or a personal friend.

Power of Attorney Lawyer

A power of attorney lawyer is usually a general practice attorney. In addition, they specialize in drafting medical power of attorney and financial power of attorney documents. In general, these documents are fairly easy to complete. Usually, a power of attorney lawyer will offer a flat rate on some power of attorney documents.

Durable Power of Attorney

A durable power of attorney is a type of power of attorney document. A durable power of attorney stays in effect if you become incapacitated. For example, if someone injures you in a car accident and you can’t make decisions, you’ll need a durable power of attorney. Therefore, it’s crucial to draft a durable power of attorney if you have any sort of medical condition.
