What Is Loss of Consortium?

Loss of affection or loss of companionship is another way of saying loss of consortium. This occurs when a spouse, child, or parent suffers the loss of a loved one due to a fatal accident, such as a car accident. This can also be seen when a loved one sustains severe, debilitating injuries due to a horrific accident. When this happens, spouses, children, and parents are able to claim loss of consortium.  For example, after a parent is hurt in a car wreck, she may no longer be able to coach the soccer team, pick up her small child, or do other similar bonding activities with her child. The child then has a loss or consortium claim in addition to the parent’s bodily injury claim.  Likewise, a spouse hurt bad enough in a car accident or with certain types of injuries may not be able to give the same level of love or companionship as they did before the auto accident, including but not limited to sexual relations.  This is just one of many examples of additional damages claims that can be made when you have an attorney handling your injury claim who can identify all possible damages on your behalf.
