The Wrongful Death Investigation in Funeral Home Negligence

The Role of Wrongful Death Investigations in Funeral Home Negligence Cases

The loss of a loved one is an emotionally challenging experience. During such times, families place immense trust in funeral homes to handle the final rites with respect and dignity. However, when this trust breaks due to funeral home negligence, it adds to the pain and grief of the bereaved families.

Funeral home negligence refers to any form of misconduct or failure on the part of the funeral home to provide the expected standard of care. Examples include mishandling the deceased’s body, misidentifying, or stealing personal belongings. Such negligence tarnishes the final memories of your loved one and imposes emotional and financial burdens on the grieving families.

The Dual Investigation Approach

At Traction Law Group, we understand the depth of pain and betrayal families feel when faced with funeral home negligence. That’s why we have adopted a comprehensive approach to our investigations. Our inquiries are twofold: we delve into the specifics of the funeral home negligence and also explore the manner of death of the decedent.

Exploring the Manner of Death

Determining the cause and manner of death is important in a funeral home case. While the cause of death explains the specific reason for the demise (like heart attack, accident, etc.), the manner of death categorizes it into natural, accident, suicide, homicide, or undetermined. In some cases, the cause can point toward a wrongful death.

Wrongful death refers to the untimely death of an individual resulting from the negligence, misconduct, or criminal actions of another person or entity. The cause of action is a legal principle that allows the deceased’s family to seek justice and compensation for their loss. For instance, if a person dies due to a faulty product, medical malpractice, or an avoidable accident, it can be considered a wrongful death. By exploring the manner of death, we aim to uncover any potential wrongful death claims and maximize the recovery for our clients.

Benefits of a Comprehensive Investigation

A thorough investigation serves multiple purposes:

  1. It ensures that justice is served, holding negligent parties accountable for their actions.
  2. It provides families a clearer understanding of the events leading up to their loved one’s death. This clarity can offer some solace during the grieving process.
  3. A comprehensive investigation can lead to financial recovery related to the funeral home’s negligence and any potential wrongful death claims.

At Traction Law Group, we are deeply committed to standing by our clients during their most challenging times. We believe in ensuring that every family gets the justice they deserve and that no negligence goes unchecked.
