Dignity Memorial Complaints: How to Report Issues and Seek Legal Help

Has your family been affected by issues relating to funeral or deathcare services provided by a Dignity Memorial funeral home? Our funeral home negligence attorneys investigate potential claims against funeral homes, crematories, and other death care providers for failing to uphold their duty of care.

What is Dignity Memorial?

Dignity Memorial is an American funeral home network with over 1,900 locations nationwide. It provides funeral, cremation, and cemetery services. The company often operates locations under an acquired local funeral brand or generic name. Service Corporation International (SCI), the world’s largest deathcare company, owns and operates the Dignity Memorial brand.

Common Complaints Against Funeral Homes

Complaints against deathcare providers like Dignity Memorial typically concern problems such as funeral home negligence, overcharging, financial disagreements, or failure to deliver contracted services.

These issues frequently violate laws meant to protect consumers and families while purchasing funeral services or professional standards governing funeral homes’ operations.

At Traction Law Group, the majority of our cases involve problems related to the mishandling of a loved one’s remains, such as:

  • Incorrect handling or care of the deceased, such as inadequate preservation, embalming errors, or issues with the body or casket.
  • Cremation issues like cremating the wrong body, mixing ashes with another decedent’s, lost cremains, or improper cremation procedures.
  • Presenting the wrong body in a funeral service
  • Exhuming or moving a decedent with permission
  • Disrespect or mistreatment of your loved one’s remains.
  • Not verifying or informing the family members about the death.
  • Proceeding with cremation without obtaining family approval.
  • Conducting a burial without family consent.
  • Failure to embalm or prepare the deceased properly.
  • Inappropriate treatment or damage to the body or casket during handling.

Consumers and families impacted by a funeral home’s bad acts may report the conduct to the appropriate state authority and could be entitled to financial compensation for their potential claims.

The Steps to File a Dignity Memorial Complaint and Report Suspected Negligence

If you suspect funeral home negligence or are dissatisfied with the services provided by a funeral home, taking action is a step toward ensuring such experiences are investigated and prohibited from happening to other families. Here’s how you can proceed:

  1. Document Everything: Keep detailed records of all agreements, communications, and events. Photographs, emails, and service contracts are essential in building a potential case.
  2. Seek Legal Advice: Consult an attorney with experience in funeral home negligence cases. Legal counsel may offer guidance on your rights and the feasibility of your potential claims.
  3. File a Complaint: You can file complaints with state licensing boards or consumer protection agencies such as the FTC, which can investigate your claims further. Our funeral home complaint guide provides contact information and instructions for the relevant funeral authorities in all 50 states.
