Funeral home negligence or funeral home abuse is something that you rarely hear about. Most people don’t want to talk about it. However, it happens. Their loved one dies and the family is given even more grief by irresponsible, insensitive and sometimes even immoral funeral homes. They forget that they are dealing with people who are grieving and have suffered a loss or simply don’t care.
Sometimes these funeral homes are all about the profits. They do a job and do it poorly---with little sensitivity and regard for their clients. Some of them try to manipulate people in their time of need in order to further their own business interests. Such practices are deplorable and should not be tolerated.
In a perfect world, funeral homes are supposed to be caring people who deal with the families with the utmost compassion and sympathy. However, sometimes that just doesn’t happen. Horrifically, there are cases where a funeral home or crematory has lost or mishandled a loved one’s remains. In doing so, the funeral home or crematory’s negligence denied the family the opportunity to ever put their loved one to rest in a way that was fitting—i.e., both dignified and respectful.
