Corpse mistreatment was an issue that gained massive national and international attention when the New York Post published gruesome images of dead bodies crammed into an unrefrigerated truck last year, without the individuals that did this caring about the inherent dignity of every individual that was in said truck. This is not only inhumane, but can also be considered to be illegal.
Here are some other instances of corpse mistreatment:
- Steal valuables and jewelry from a corpse
- Burying the wrong body
- Burying a body without express authorization from the family
- The sale of stolen organs from individuals that died of the virus
- The improper disposal of a body
- Disposing a body or dropping it during transportation to the morgue
Nursing Home Negligence and COVID-19
Bodies eventually make their way to the funeral home, where they are embalmed or cremated. During this process, corpse mistreatment is more than likely, but in order to have a valid case, you must prove that negligence actually occurred. In such cases, you must show that there was duty of care which shows that the nursing home or funeral home had a duty to treat the body of the deceased individual in a respectful and reasonable manner. You must also show that they breached this duty by pointing out the negligent act, thereby causing it harm, leading to injuries or damages to the body, which in the end caused you emotional distress, anxiety, mental torture and even time off work due to the psychological trauma.
