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.

Wonderful experience from the moment of walking in, they make you feel so welcomed. The little details of even putting your name on the whiteboard welcoming you. All along the way they keep you informed on the progress, asking detailed questions to get the full picture of your individual needs. The team you're assigned, all work together to make a stressful and scary situation easy to deal with. Kelsey, Aaron and Abraham ate the best!! Thank you again 💓.

No one wants to deal with the aftermath of an accident, but if you do find yourself in that situation, these folks make the experience so much easier. I felt comfortable with them from my very first meeting. They even had a welcome message for me in their lobby. They are great people to work with and I am happy with the outcome.

A law firm like such is hard to find, one that cares for their clients with such passion. I worked with them for almost 2 years. He has always been friendly, professional, helpful, and over all amazing. He was patient with my silly questions. He is beyond paralegal. I will certainly recommend this firm to others,
