    What is the Average Burial Cost?

    The average cost of a funeral can vary significantly depending on factors such as:

    • Location
    • Casket type
    • Cremation or burial
    • Type of funeral service

    On average, in the United States, a funeral can range from around $7,000 to $12,000.

    A funeral at this cost typically includes:

    • Ceremony arrangements
    • Embalming
    • Cremation expenses or burial expenses
    • Transportation
    • Funeral home fees
    • Casket
    • Burial plot

    Additional services, such as:

    • Obituary notices
    • Flowers
    • Memorial services

    Can significantly increase the overall cost.

    In wrongful death claims, funeral and burial costs are considered compensable damages. When a person dies due to the negligence of another person or entity, the surviving family members may be entitled to pursue compensation to cover these expenses.


    Who Can Be Held Financially Liable for the Funeral ceremony?

    The party found negligent for the loss of a loved one can be held liable for the costs associated with funeral and burial costs. These costs can include the expenses mentioned earlier, in addition to headstone or marker, crypt, and any other related costs.

    Keep in mind, the compensation families are entitled to for funeral and burial costs can vary based on state laws and the specific circumstances of each case.


    Filing a Compensation Claim to Cover Burial expenses

    To seek compensation for funeral and burial costs, the family of the deceased can hire a wrongful death lawyer. An attorney will help family members file a claim or wrongful death lawsuit. During this time, they will gather necessary documentation, including invoices and receipts, to establish the actual expenses incurred.

    An attorney will then include these costs as part of the damages sought in the wrongful death claim.

    At MVP Accident Attorneys, we recognize that losing a loved one is an emotional and stressful time. Our wrongful death lawyers are dedicated to helping you recover the justice and compensation your family deserves for the untimely loss of a loved one.

    Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

    MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
