Cremation expert witnesses may be called upon for various reasons, since the cremation process must adhere to a set of strict rules and regulations, the violation of which would be cause for litigation. Cremation expert consulting may provide valuable information for cases involving such areas as the death care industry, funeral direction, funeral management, cemetery management, mortuaries, risk assessment, site inspection, Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA), workplace safety, standard of care, and many other issues involved with the process of cremation, each of which may become the center of a possible cremation-relate court case.
In addition to cremation, experts with a background in the death industry are also often experienced working with embalming and other facets of mortuary procedures and management. Other cremation expert witnesses may have experience working with autopsies, identification procedures, and various other forensic-related issues. Cremation cases may also involve the various documents and licenses required to perform cremations.
Cremation cases may also concern the improper training of crematory technicians, as failing to adhere to the rules and regulations regarding proper crematory operations would be in violation of health and safety codes, which would be grounds for possible lawsuits. Site inspections are a very important factor in numerous cremation lawsuits, since any building defects or problems with management would be cause for litigation.
