FUNERAL HOME NEGLIGENCE

A few years ago, we handled a funeral home negligence case. Apparently, negligence occurs more than you would think in funeral homes.

What is funeral home negligence?
Well, if the facility mis-treats your loved ones’ body, fails to care for it in the way you contracted, and it causes you emotional distress, that would be a funeral home negligence case.

Examples:

– dropping body
– failing to bury body in right plot
– cremating body when family requested burial

Remember the funeral home in Georgia that was in hot water a few years back? The owner was telling families their loved one had been cremated and then they found bodies buried outside?

It can be a very emotional experience, in addition to the loss of your loved one – so if you have such a case, don’t hesitate to call our office.
