Many clients that come to our law office to have us prepare their wills are often motivated by the fact they are getting ready to take an overseas flight. They are afraid that something bad will happen to them on the long flight and want to make sure all of their affairs are in order before they depart.
But what are your chances of actually dying on a commercial air flight? The chance of dying in a commercial air flight is only 1 in 11 million. What are your chances of dying in a car accident this year? Your odds of dying in a car accident this year are approximately 1 in 8,000.
So what is the moral of the story? The moral of the story is that you have a lot more to be worried about driving home today than you do of taking that commercial air flight. You should be doing estate planning today rather than waiting till you take a long trip.
