Unexpected things happen to us everyday. Oftentimes, these occurrences are small — a fender bender or a spilled cup of coffee. Other times, these events can be catastrophic. It is important to be prepared for anything to happen. One of the essential parts of this preparation is having an estate plan. No matter your circumstances, having a plan in place ensures that your assets are allocated to your wishes after your death. While we all hope we are never caught in a major catastrophe, they do happen. This is demonstrated by a tragic apartment collapse that occurred in Miami this morning.
Around 2:30 this morning, the Miami-Dade Fire and Rescue Department tweeted about the collapse of a local apartment building. Many residents were rushed to the hospital, and at least one death has been confirmed. While the cause is currently unknown, they are working to uncover the series of events that led to the collapse. Read more about this event in this article from The Hill.
