Luhrsen Goldberg Fights Against Cemetery Desecration

CEMETERY DESECRATION

Luhrsen Goldberg is a Sarasota personal injury firm with a highly defined mission: To welcome clients into our fold and work to remedy their hurts and concerns like an interested family member would. This requires care, respect, communication, and attention to the issues that have caused harm, as well as concern for the results that have emanated from that harm. That being the case, it’s only fitting that we represent families who have been victimized by cemetery desecration, a deeply personal affront to bereaved families.

Cemetery Desecration - Luhrsen Goldberg

The Cemetery Industry is Big Business, with All the Attendant Problems

It’s painful enough to bury a loved one, but to find out that their remains have been mishandled or abused by those you entrusted with their care can make you feel indignant, violated, and betrayed—and rightfully so. Unfortunately, instances of Cemetery Desecration are not uncommon, so if you suspect that your loved one’s remains have been mishandled in any way, it’s crucial that you contact attorneys who will thoroughly investigate the circumstances and set out to pursue corrective measures immediately.

Cemeteries were once primarily “mom and pop” operations, and most of the families who oversaw those cemeteries took great personal pride and care in the way that burials and ongoing care of the cemetery grounds were handled. Though perhaps not all of them held to such a high standard, most did; but now, the instances of abuse have become more pervasive as large, nameless, faceless corporations and their numerous employees have taken over the industry. The funeral and cemetery industry is big business, commanding billions of dollars every year, and as often happens with large corporations, personal service and dedication to clients can give way to amassing larger and larger profits. Sadly, the result is that families may find that their loved ones’ remains are not cared for in a way befitting the respect and dignity that they deserve.

What Constitutes Cemetery Desecration?

There are a number of actions that could constitute cemetery consecration, examples of which include:

Bodies buried in the wrong place, moved, or lost
Husbands and wives separated
Vaults that are crushed or cracked open
Exhuming bodies
Stacking bodies
Missing or damaged headstones or gravestones
Oversold plots
Charges for services not performed
Family members care for one another and help each other recover from painful situations, and that is the way the attorneys and staff at Luhrsen Goldberg see their role and their duties as your legal team. If you’ve been hurt due to acts of cemetery desecration, we will go above and beyond to help right the wrongs so you can move forward from the pain.

Cause As mentioned above, the first issue to clarify is how the accident occurred. If it was a one-vehicle accident where the driver simply lost control of the motorcycle, its likely that there would be no viable legal action in that regard. There is an exception, however, and that would be if this motorcycle accident occurred because of a defect in the bike that could not have been discovered by the driver before the crash. If the crash was caused by another vehicle or driver and included problematic conduct such as speeding, the presence of alcohol or a failure to yield the right-of-way, then there very well could be a viable action. Of course, this would depend on several factors aside from fault.

Damages Every legal action needs some form of damages in order to be considered valid. For instance, if a crash occurred and the damages included:

  • Motorcycle repairs and/or replacement
    Medical bills
  • Physical rehabilitation costs
  • Lost income
  • Pain and suffering

These would all be considered valid damages that could rightfully be pursued and recovered in a civil law setting.
