Deaths due to medical malpractice, birth injury, defective product or drug exposure are just a few of the many examples of wrongful death. If your loved one was a victim of wrongful death, then you may entitled to monetary compensation for your loss and pain and suffering. As a survivor of the deceased, you may have to file a lawsuit to receive reimbursement for your pecuniary loss. A pecuniary damage is the monetary reimbursement for the loss of wages, financial support, medical bills, funeral costs or other costs and losses you endured due to your loved one’s death.
