Remember, many big decisions can wait so you’ll have time to think through your options. #FamilyLaw #Divorce

A will is a an important document to have to ensure your assets are taken care of after you pass. But one simple mistake can put all of your plans in jeopardy – not communicating your wishes to family members. If nobody knows where your will and documents are, it’s like you’ve never had a will at all. So be sure to communicate where your will is, who your attorney is, safe deposit keys, account numbers, etc. #EstatePlanning #Wills

While an estate plan may look good on paper, it may not work well if the assets and plan are just dumped onto the heirs without any preparation. Communication is key – children and other heirs need to be informed of the plan early so they can be prepared to handle the assets. And don’t forget to carefully consider how you want the estate divided. #EstatePlanning #Wills #Trusts

If you think an insured plaintiff must mitigate his/her damages by using available insurance, think again. In the recent case of Pebley v. Santa Clara Organics (LLC B277893 (Court of Appeal, 2nd Dist.) 5/9/2018), the tort victim was properly permitted to introduce evidence of cost of medical services rendered outside his insurance plan. The court held that an injured plaintiff who sought medical treatment outside his insurance plan was properly permitted to introduce evidence of the amounts billed for those services and their reasonable value.

Although Pebley had insurance coverage, his decision to seek treatment outside his plan entitled him to be treated as uninsured for purposes of introducing evidence of his medical bills. There was no merit to Santa Clara's contention that Pebley was required to mitigate his damages by limiting his treatment to providers covered by his insurance.

A jury found Santa Clara liable for Pebley's injuries and awarded him $3,644,000 in damages, including $644,000 for past and future medical expenses.
