How important is it to have a Living Will?

May 4, 2018

How important is it to have a Living Will?  Under Ohio law, that document directs the termination of life support if two (2) physicians state that you are either terminally ill or permanently unconscious.  Having a Living Will can relieve your family of one of the hardest decisions they will ever have to make: whether or not to remove life support if there is no hope of recovery for you.

-Attorney Jack N. Alpern
