What Can I File a Funeral Home Neglect Case For?
Times may be emotionally difficult immediately following the death of your loved one. For many, the days, weeks, and months following the death of a loved one can be traumatic and the most challenging to endure. When a funeral home or crematorium deprives you of your right to properly grieve and properly say goodbye due to their negligence, it makes matters worse and is extremely traumatic. We can assist you with filing a lawsuit against the funeral home or crematorium for any of the following reasons:
- Deceitful business practices – lying about pricing, availability of caskets, and more
- Mishandling of the body – improper storage, improper embalming, dropping the body/casket
- Stealing property from the body – jewels, heirlooms, etc.
- Improper cremation/mixing cremated remains with others or losing the remains
- Abusing the body of your deceased loved one
- Failing to confirm and notify the next of kin
