There are many of details involved with funerals, any of which could end up as the subject of a lawsuit if not properly handled. The funeral industry requires careful management and planning, as each client may have different requests that must be met by the funeral professionals. Funeral expert witnesses may be brought into a trial to provide expert opinion on a variety of issues, as each funeral-related lawsuit may be very different depending on the nature of each case.
Funeral expert witnesses can have a background in real estate appraisal, as the funeral business may be part of a residential real estate, church, or commercial real estate. Funeral homes may also offer cremation as an option, meaning that some funeral homes also house crematoriums. Crematory operations, like any other aspect of the death care industry, are subjected to site inspections to ensure proper standards of care in relation to codes and compliance.
Site inspections are also conducted to enforce rules and regulations regarding other funeral home procedures, such as embalming, which utilize a certain amount of chemicals requiring a proper level of risk assessment. Codes and compliance must also be followed in relation to cemetery management, as there is a lot of maintenance involved with cemetery care.
