Florida COVID-19 Funeral Home Neglect

Like much of the country, Florida has been devastated by the coronavirus pandemic. COVID-19 has claimed thousands of lives, leaving families across the state to mourn the loss of loved ones far too soon.

Some Florida funeral homes have struggled to keep up with the influx of remains and fulfill their duties amid the outbreak. Although it’s a difficult time for these businesses, that doesn’t excuse neglect or mistreatment.

  • What Are Some Examples of Funeral Home Neglect Amid COVID-19?

    Losing a loved one is an immensely difficult experience, no matter the circumstances. Finding out that the funeral home you’ve entrusted has breached their responsibility to treat your loved one with care and respect is an outrage.

    Funeral home negligence can take many forms. For example:

    • Dropping, mishandling, or losing the body
    • Leaving the body unattended for an extended period of time
    • Storing the body in an unrefrigerated vehicle
    • Piling bodies on top of one another
    • Burying the wrong body or burying the body in the wrong plot
    • Failing to deliver the deceased in a timely fashion
    • Stealing items such as jewelry
    • Abusing a corpse
  • What Compensation Might I Be Eligible to Receive?

    If a deceased loved one was mishandled or abused by a funeral home, you could be entitled to compensation for your hardship. Victims are often awarded damages including:

    • Funeral Expenses: You might recover damages for the funeral, casket, and other costs associated with your loved one’s burial.
    • Emotional Distress: Finding out that your loved one was not treated in a dignified manner can cause lasting emotional suffering.
    • Punitive Damages: If the funeral home’s actions were especially callous or reckless, you may be awarded damages intended to punish the funeral home.
