The dangers of certain drugs you may be taking for granted

Do you have a chronic pain issue that affects your quality of life? If so, you are definitely not alone in your struggle, as many North Carolina residents wake up every morning knowing that the day that lies ahead is likely going to include personal, physical pain. Perhaps you suffered an injury in a car accident and now live with the residual effects, or maybe you have an underlying health condition that causes pain in one or more parts of your body. 

Some important considerations for your estate planning

Estate planning involves more than drawing up your will, trust and other documents. It involves making crucial decisions about who will handle your affairs not only after you're gone, but if you become incapacitated to the point where you're unable to make decisions for yourself or take care of your personal and financial obligations.

You can be arrested for DWI/DUI if you're under the legal limit

As most every driver knows, it's illegal in North Carolina and across the country to drive with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 percent or higher. You can be arrested for DWI/DUI if a Breathalyzer test puts you over the limit even if you've exhibited no other indication that you're under the influence and haven't been swerving, speeding or committing other traffic violations. Under the law, this is called "per se intoxicated."

When planning your estate, leave some things out of your will

A will is one of the most important documents in an estate plan. However, there are some things you shouldn't or legally can't include in a will. In some cases, that's because they need to be addressed in other documents or by making other arrangements. In other cases, they are illegal and therefore unenforceable.
