There Are More Kinds of Funeral Home Abuse Than You Might Think
When a loved one has died, friends and family members rely on funeral home directors and staff to treat the deceased with the respect and care that he or she deserves. They also trust that staff members won’t take advantage of the difficult situation and distracted family members. Too often, funeral home owners and staff betray that trust. They willfully deceive grieving families and do the following:
- Overcharge them for services
- Substitute cheaper caskets for more expensive models to increase profits
- Steal jewelry and other personal items
- Place more than one body in a closed casket
- Remove and sell body parts
- Fail to properly secure a burial site, inviting vandalism and theft
- Commit many other kinds of funeral abuse
