The unique background and legal expertise of our Firm’s attorneys allow us to provide services in truly sensitive areas of litigation, none more so than the claims of grieving families against Cemeteries and Mortuaries. Our Firm represents many major cemeteries, crematoriums, mortuaries and other funeral establishments in a wide variety of lawsuits involving negligent handling of remains, premises liability cases, breach of contract, and intentional and negligent misrepresentation. We are well versed in the law governing this area of potential liability as well as industry standards and practices governing our clients’ business operations. Over the years, this has allowed our attorneys to successfully defend a myriad of claims brought against our funeral home, cemetery and mortuary clients.
Some of the more sensitive claims against which we have mounted successful defenses include wrongful burial claims, negligent cremation, damaged caskets, misidentification of remains, improper removal and disposition of remains. We work closely with our clients and their insurers so that our clients’ interests are fully protected at all times. Due to the sensitive nature of these claims, we are at all times hyper-sensitive to the manner in which we conduct ourselves before, during, and after the litigation process to ensure our advocacy is achieved with the utmost respect and decorum owed in these circumstances, no matter the viability of the claim asserted.
