A Brief Explanation About Funeral Home Abuse
Few of us can imagine what would compel someone entrusted with handling the remains of a person to abuse that trust, but in nearly every case of funeral home abuse that we have handled, the abuser sought monetary gain. It is unconscionable that someone would put money before the feelings of grieving friends and family members, but this kind of abuse happens more often than you might think. Some examples of funeral home abuse that we have investigated for clients include the following:
- Removal and selling of body parts
- Removal of jewelry and other personal effects from a body
- Improper storage and handling of bodies
- Funeral home directors who sell an expensive casket to a family and swap in a less expensive model
- Placement of more than one body in a casket
- Mixing the ashes of more than one person in an urn after cremation
- Adding unnecessary expenses to an invoice or performing services that were not agreed upon and demanding that families pay for them
