If you have suffered the loss of a loved one, you know what a painful time it can be for you and your family. Funeral homes, mortuaries, crematoriums, funeral directors and death care specialists are expected to help you deal with the difficult process of burial or cremation arrangements in a dignified manner. Grieving relatives and friends trust death care professionals to guide you through the process. When a funeral home, mortuary, funeral director or death care specialist breaches the trust that you’ve placed in them, you may have a claim for damages. At Ben Bronston & Associates, we fight to protect the rights of loved ones and friends whose trust has been breached by funeral homes.
When dealing with the loss of a loved one, you should be treated with sympathy, respect, honesty and good faith by the funeral home during your time of mourning. Moreover, your loved one is entitled to the utmost respect and dignity. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. If your family’s trust has been broken by a negligent funeral home or cemetery owner, Ben Bronston & Associates can help. If your deceased loved one’s remains have been abused in any way or the memory of your loved one has been dishonored, we want to help you.
Ben Bronston & Associates will fight for any client whose trust has been breached by a funeral home. If you or other loved ones have been victims of funeral home fraud or funeral home negligence, we will make the responsible parties pay for your pain and mental anguish.
