Funeral home horror stories may be something that you may not be familiar with.Â They occur more often than you would think.
You can do your own diligent research on it, but itâ€™s shockingly more common than I thought it would be, so I decided to inform you about it.
Itâ€™s not a surprise that no matter how hard you search you will find very little useful information on funeral home and cemetery fraud.
Funeral Home Malpractice & Negligence Issues
I really want you to find useful tips here, so I have decided to publish a few things that funeral homes actually could be sued for.
Stealing Personal Property
I personally would not bury my loved one in any jewelry.Â Thieves have been known to steal not only jewelry, but gold fillings too.
Unfortunately theft could happen at the funeral home and/or at the cemetery.Â Grave Robbery is not a new concept, it just doesn’t make the news as often as it occurs!
Wouldnâ€™t your loved one rather see you with their personal valuable property rather than have it stolen?Â The funeral home can be sued for theft, but how can you check?Â This works to their advantage, you can’t sue anybody for something you don’t know about, right?
There is also what you call â€œfailing to attend to a gravesite, resulting in vandalismâ€.Â This is also a reason that the funeral home could be sued.Â If your loved oneâ€™s grave site is vandalized.
Placing More Than One Body In A Coffin
Chances are you are not going to dig your loved one up.
So while placing more than one body in a coffin is a crime….. the funeral home can be sued for it, who’s gonna know?
How would you know if there is more than one body in the coffin?Â What happens at the grave-site?
Well I donâ€™t know because any funeral that I have ever been toâ€¦the body has never been dropped in the ground in my presence.
An unattended coffin at a cemetery is an open invitation for all kinds of things to happen including theft, vandalism, and reselling the casket by taking your loved one out of it.
What good is a rule if you don’t know about it? If you don’t know that a theft took place how can you press charges or sue? Worse yet, you are gone and don’t get to see the casket dropped in the ground.Â My friend asked me if any of these rules was made to humor her, LOL!
