The quarantines imposed by the coronavirus pandemic have given everybody a chance to reflect on their lives and changes needed. Some legal issues that have been placed on the back burner for too long are now becoming urgent. There is a mood of unfinished business among many employees. Group legal plans provide services to help.
Some of the Issues
A group legal plan can successfully resolve several situations that are everyday legal matters.
- Protecting loved ones and survivors.
A simple will is going to make an estate easier to settle and having an executor makes the process easier. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services offers drafting simple wills and help with naming executors as a service. Living wills and medical powers of attorney are essential when the victim is unresponsive. Again, to protect loved ones who are otherwise forced to watch a loved one on life support, a living will gives instructions on what to do, and a person who has medical powers of attorney can provide healthcare providers the correct guidance.
- Checking legal documents.
These can include small things like leases. It helps to have an attorney review the contract and see if any provision is there for the possibility of another pandemic. Countrywide has a nationwide network of lawyers who provide pre-paid legal services to plan members. They can check the legal documents to see if there is anything that a plan member needs to be concerned about.
- Warranties and consumer protection.
Folks are discovering during this quarantine that warranties are not always foolproof. It has happened too often that the required service is delayed for weeks if rendered at all. A Countrywide lawyer will check the warranty and see if there is any stipulation about delays and if a consumer protection complaint needs to be filed. That same lawyer will help prepare a substantial claim if service has not been correctly provided.
- Help with public agencies.
Many have discovered that problems arise due to a lack of understanding about government agencies. A Countrywide attorney can explain what needs to be done to properly file for unemployment or any assistance brought on by an enforced quarantine. A group legal plan member is in better shape knowing that there is a Countrywide attorney ready to assist.
