As the beleaguered residents of New York City and New Jersey continue to put their lives back together, asset protection lawyer Hillel L. Presser reminds Americans - it could happen to you!
“We’ve seen some bizarre, destructive weather in recent years - nearly 1,700 tornadoes in 2011, extreme drought this year and Hurricane Sandy followed up with a Nor’easter, just to name a few,” says Presser, author of “Financial Self-Defense (Revised Edition)”.
“And we can expect more of the same. AccuWeather is forecasting major snowstorms from North Carolina to New York City in January and February; severe storms across the South, with the possibility of tornadoes and flash flooding; and a growing drought in the Northwest that carries the potential for more wildfires.”
People should take steps now, before a crisis, to make sure they’re protected, he says. “If your tree falls on your neighbor’s house in a storm, will you be prepared for a lawsuit?” he asks. “Is your important paperwork in a safe place where you’ll be able to access it if your home floods, like so many people in New York and New Jersey?”
