South Miami Cemetery Negligence

The loss of a loved one is a very emotional matter. Our last act of respect for a loved one on earth is to follow the deceased’s wishes and bury them accordingly. You expect that the cemetery will treat the remains of your family member with care and understanding. Sometimes, they do not meet that expectation.

In some cases, the improper or illegal practices of a cemetery are obvious. Remains are lost. Grave markers are not put in the right place. In other cases, cemetery negligence is not as easy to spot. Signs may include missing or erroneously placed temporary markers, unexpected requests from the staff of the cemetery or disruption of the burial site. Whether cemetery negligence is obvious or not, you are entitled to have things done as agreed. Your family has a right to fair compensation. Most importantly, your loved one should be treated with respect. Rest in peace should mean exactly that.
