Cemetery & Burial Claims

Alabama Cemetery Mismanagement Lawyer

When dealing with the loss of a loved one, you rightfully trust a funeral home, cemetery or crematory to properly care for your loved one's body. Unfortunately, this trust is often violated, which can be one of the most shocking and devastating issues to face in your time of grief. If you are dealing with these unthinkable acts of carelessness, there is recourse available and these businesses can be held liable for these acts of dishonor.

At the Law Office of Abbey Herrin Clarkson, we have experience dealing with these types of cases. We will make every effort to hold these businesses accountable for their negligence and misconduct while getting you the compensation you deserve. We can also pursue injunctive relief, such as having a grave moved to the proper location, if that becomes necessary.

Examples of types of cases our attorneys can handle include the following:

  • Failure to honor family plot arrangements
  • Disruption of the grave
  • Failure to treat the remains with proper respect
  • Lost remains
  • Misplaced tombstones
  • Improper burial practices
  • Improper exhumations without consent
  • Stacking remains in oversold plots

Attorney Abbey Herrin Clarkson has experience successfully handling these types of claims. Recently, she won an appeal to the Alabama Supreme Court on this issue. Click here to read the case.
