Father sues after sons body Falls out of Casket-YourFuneralGuy

21 Oct

A Father has sued a Funeral Home – Mortuary after  his sons body fell out of casket, This is is a sad horrific scenario that every funeral director is afraid may happen to him.

The father of a Boulder High School graduate killed this summer in a motorcycle accident is suing Crist Mortuary, alleging negligence after employees dropped his son’s casket and let the body roll onto the ground.

According to the lawsuit, filed Friday by Phillip Maldonado, when the hearse arrived at Crist Mortuary for a scheduled viewing July 8 after the funeral for 20-year-old Alex Maldonado, the driver and another employee tried to unload the casket.

With Mr. Maldonado watching, one or more of the handlers let go of the casket and dropped it,” the lawsuit says. “The casket went crashing to the cement ground, its lid opened suddenly, and Alex’s body tumbled out and fell directly onto its face directly in front of Mr. Maldonado.”

    THAT IS SURELY WHY COLORADO NEEDS A FUNERAL DIRECTORS BOARD. ALSO THAT DIRECTORS/EMBALMERS SHOULD SERVE IN MORTUARY SCHOOLS, AND APPRENTICESHIPS. ALSO MAY BE A GREAT IDEA TO START HAVING LICENSED QUAILIFIED PEOPLE OPPERATING THE FUNERAL HOMES IN THAT STATE. IT IS THE ONLY STATE THAT DOESNT REQUIRE COLLEGE AND EDUCATION. DONT DROP THE CASKET. THATS FUNERAL 101.. COME ON.
