Designation of Agent

I, ________________________, designate my partner, _________________________, to be my agent empowered with the following authority.

1. VISITATION AUTHORITY: To give notice that, if I am admitted to a medical facility of any type, a nursing home, hospice, or similar health care, skilled nursing, or custodial facility, my agent, _____________________________, shall be designated as “family” as that term is defined by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. JCAHO defines “family” as “The person(s) who plays a significant role in the individual’s [patient’s] life. This may include a person(s) not legally related to the individual.” (Joint Commission Resources, JCR, 2001 Hospital Accreditation Standards, p. 322).
My agent shall have priority in being admitted to visit me in such facility. My partner, as my agent, is designated as the person to be consulted by medical or health care personnel concerning my care and treatment. This is in keeping with the Health Care Power of Attorney I executed. My agent shall also have the authority to determine who will be permitted to visit me while in the facility and during any recovery at home.

This authorization supersedes any preference given to parties related to me by blood or by law or other parties desiring to visit me. These instructions shall remain in full force and effect unless and until I freely give contrary written instructions to competent medical personnel on the premises involved. My subsequent disability or incapacity shall not affect these instructions.

2. RECEIPT OF PERSONAL PROPERTY: My agent shall also have the right to receive any and all items of personal property and effects that may be recovered from or about my person by any hospital, nursing home, other health care facility, police agency, or any other person or public/private entity at the time of my illness, disability, or death. This specifically includes cash or other liquid asset(s).

3. DISPOSITION OF REMAINS/AUTOPSY AUTHORIZATION/FUNERAL ARRANGEMENTS: My agent shall have the authority to authorize an autopsy if it is deemed necessary or is required by law. In matters concerning the disposition of my remains and funeral arrangements, I provide that my agent/partner, or any other person directed to dispose my remains, shall follow my instructions for any funeral services. Any limitations on this authority are specified in this document.
My agent is to direct the disposition of my remains by the following method:
burial ______ cremation ______ . The specific instructions are found in ______________________________________________________________________________________________ .
In this regard, my agent has the authority to make all decisions necessary for my obituary notice, funeral, any mortician’s role therein, burial services, interment or cremation of my body, including, but not limited to the selection of a casket or urn, selection, care and tending of a grave site, and selection of a gravestone including the inscription thereon.

4. SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS CONCERNING MY AGENT’S AUTHORITY OR LIMITATIONS THEREON: My agent shall have access to all medical records and information pertaining to me and concerning treatments, procedures, treatment plans, etc. This includes the right to disclose this information to other people. I explicitly authorize any medical or health care provider to release information requested by my agent to him/her and consider my agent an authorized person to receive such information under the Health Information Portability and Accessibility Act (HIPAA).
My agent has the authority to admit or discharge me from any hospital, nursing home, residential care, assisted living or similar facility, or service entity. My agent also has the authority to hire and fire medical, social service, and other support personnel. My agent is primarily responsible for my medical and health care.

Since 1985, KENNETH VERCAMMEN has worked as a personal injury attorney, working for injury victims and their families. By taking a hard-hitting, aggressive approach toward the insurance companies, KENNETH VERCAMMEN and our co-counsel have consistently obtained outstanding results for many injured clients over the years I am proud to have worked on cases in various capacities, small and large. While obviously prior results cannot guarantee the outcome of future cases, I can guarantee that you case will receive the same degree of dedication and hard work that went into each of these prior cases.

In direct contrast to the hard-hitting approach we take toward the insurance companies is the soft approach we take toward our clients. I am proud of my compassionate staff as I am of the outstanding financial results they have achieved. For many years, I have watched them treat our clients with patience, dignity and respect. I would have it no other way.

Many years ago, I attended a seminar sponsored by the American Bar Association on Law Practice Management. This was to help insure that each of our clients is always treated like a person -- not a file! We recognize that you are innocent victims and that you have placed your trust in us. Please understand that we understand what you are going through. Feel comforted that we are here to help you.

If you retain KENNETH VERCAMMEN to represent you, we will give you the same advice we give each of our clients -- concentrate on your life, you family and your health. We will take care of everything else. Leave all of the work and worry about your legal rights to us. Trust us. Believe in us. Have faith in us as your attorneys. Understand that we will always to do what we believe is best for you and your case. Helping you is our job. In fact, it is our only job -- guiding injury victims like you through one of the most difficult times of your lives, with care and concern -- while fighting aggressively to the limits of the law to obtain compensation and justice for each of you!

Print our Personal Injury Questionnaire on our Website, Fill it out and Fax back, so we can determine if we can help you obtain an injury settlement. We would welcome an opportunity to prove to you what we have proven to thousands of injured clients -- that you can feel comfortable and secure in the fact that KENNETH VERCAMMEN - Trial Attorney We Fight To Win.

When you have been injured in an accident or collision, you are worried about who is going to pay your medical bills, lost wages, and other damages. The last thing you want is to be taken advantage of by an insurance company. If you dont protect your rights, you may not be able to make a claim.

Insurance companies have attorneys and adjusters whose goal is to pay you as little as they can. You need a New Jersey personal injury lawyer to fight for you. I am dedicated to helping your recover as much money as possible under the law.

You need an attorney who will work hard to protect your rights, maximize your insurance settlement and minimize the hassles of dealing with the insurance companies. You need an experienced and aggressive New Jersey trial lawyer with PROVEN RESULTS who will fight for you. Having an experienced personal injury lawyer can make the difference between getting what you deserve and getting nothing.

Without the threat of a lawyer who is willing to go to trial and seek a big jury verdict, why would an insurance company pay you what your claim is really worth? Lawsuits can be expensive, and many people do not have the money to pursue their claim. In every case, I advance all costs associated with pursuing your case and I do not ask you for a penny until we recover from the other side.

I am an experienced aggressive trial lawyer and a 3rd degree Black Belt. I am not afraid to take your case to trial if that is what it takes to maximize the amount of money your recover for your personal injury. I offer one-on-one service, and I will not hand your case off to an inexperienced lawyer or a paralegal.

Reduce the stress of making a claim.

Personal injury accidents can turn your life upside down. Making a personal injury claim can be difficult and time consuming. Once I take your case, you can stop worrying about dealing with the insurance companies and focus on recovering from your injuries. I take care of all of the paperwork, phone calls, and negotiations, so you can get on with your life.

p.s. For those clients who are afraid or reluctant to go to Court, KENNETH VERCAMMEN also offers a special -- For Settlement Only -- program. This means that if we are unable to settle with the insurance company, we will not go any further -- unless you want us to. You have my personal assurance that there will be absolutely no pressure and no obligation.

We handle personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis.

This means:
YOU DONT OWE ME A LEGAL FEE UNLESS I RECOVER MONEY FOR YOU.
