Daytona Beach Lawyers - Surrogate Designation

What is healthcare surrogate designation?

A "healthcare surrogate designation" is a signed, dated and witnessed paper naming another person such as a husband, wife, daughter, son or close friend as your agent to make medical decisions for you if you become unable to make them for yourself.  You can include instructions about any treatment you want or wish to avoid.  Florida law provides a suggested form for designation of healthcare surrogate.  You may use it or some other form.  You may also name a second person to stand in for you, if your first choice is unavailable.

Our Daytona Beach lawyers would be happy to meet with you and go over any of your questions.
