Loss of consortium is another way to say “loss of companionship” or “loss of affection”. This occurs when a someone suffers the loss of a spouse, child, or parent due to a fatal accident. Loss of consortium 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.
An Example of Loss of Consortium
After a mother is hurt in a car wreck, she may no longer be able to coach the soccer team, pick up her baby, or do other similar bonding activities with her child. The child then has a loss of consortium claim in addition to the parent’s bodily injury claim.
A spouse hurt badly in a car accident or 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.
Loss of consortium is one of many examples of additional damage claims that can be made when you have an attorney handling your injury claim.
