Who Can Sue a Funeral Home?

In Florida, only certain parties are able to bring a lawsuit for negligence against a funeral home. A funeral home that fails to handle your loved one’s remains in a dignified manner or breaches your service agreement should be held accountable for their wrongdoing. Filing a civil lawsuit can help ensure that justice is served.  Individuals who may bring a lawsuit against a funeral home or mortuary:
  • Surviving spouse
  • Decedent’s children
  • Parents of the decedent
  • Heirs named in the decedent’s will
It is important to discuss your case with a Florida funeral home negligence attorney to determine whether you have a valid claim for damages. 

What Can a Funeral Home Be Held Liable For?

A funeral home can be held liable if they breach the duty of care they owe to you and your family. The Funeral, Cemetery, and Consumer Services regulate individuals and entities in Florida’s death care industry. Any regulatory violation may result in liability. An attorney can help you understand your rights and legal options if a funeral home fails to provide adequate care. Funeral home negligence may include but is not limited to:
  • Mishandling of remains
  • Abuse of a corpse
  • Improper embalming
  • Breach of contract
  • Loss of cremated remains
  • Theft of the decedent’s personal property
  • Inadequate storage of body
Any time that a funeral home or mortuary is negligent in how they handle your loved one’s service or remains, they might be held legally responsible for your losses. 

What Kinds of Damages Can I Get?

In a funeral home negligence case, a person may be entitled to compensation for economic and non-economic losses.  Depending on the circumstances of the case, you may be able to receive money for your:
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Physical pain
  • Emotional distress
  • Punitive damages
It can be challenging to prove a Florida funeral home negligence case without the help of an experienced attorney. An attorney can walk you through the legal process and determine how much you should claim in damages.
