Hughes, AR asked in Estate Planning, Probate and Personal Injury for Arkansas

Q: What kind of will does one need who has mesothelioma

My brother in law was diagnosed with lung cancer and he was advised he needed to make a will so that any litigation will go on in the event of his passing before a settlement is reached

A: An Arkansas attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. You may want to repost and add Probate an Estate Planning as categories - attorneys in those areas of practice would probably have greater insight than most average personal injury firms into what provisions would be necessary to enable the law firm to continue work on the case. Based on the complexity of the case, they might want to coordinate with the mesothelioma firm. I hope your brother-in-law will survive the conclusion of the case and live long enough to enjoy the money from his award within his lifetime. Good luck
