Each year during the spring and summer, many individuals take vacations to the beach, ski slopes, or various foreign locations. During the trip planning process for many people, not enough consideration is made for various estate planning concerns. Instead, individuals focus on budgeting time and finances to make such a trip possible. Individuals, however, who plan to go on even small vacations should make sure to perform adequate estate planning. With reports showing that paid holidays are available to 77 percent of private industry workers, there are a large number of individuals who have the option to take vacations each year in the United States. One of the most common ways in which accidents occur during vacations are automobile accidents, with particularly dangerous holidays including New Year’s Day, Thanksgiving, Labor Day, and Independence Day. Because accidents without adequate estate planning can be particularly severe, a skilled estate planning attorney can prove to be especially useful.
