It can either be a one time, one body event or can arise out of a scandal type situation that affects numerous families. We represent clients with individual problems or groups who wish to bring a law suit against negligent parties. Some of the problems our clients could encounter include:
- Body buried in the wrong place
- Body embalmed without permission
- Body parts illegally harvested without permission
- Improper embalming
- Tainted human tissue
- Charges for services not received
- Funeral services provider not properly licensed
