Loss of Consortium - what is that?

What is Loss of Consortium? How do I claim it and should I?

Loss of consortium is the inability to have the same type of relationship you previously had before your injury or before the death of a loved one.  For example, it is the inability to have the same type of spousal or romantic relationship you once enjoyed due to the loss of a loved one or due to a significant injury to a loved one or yourself that prevents you from enjoying the same type of activities you were once able to enjoy with a spouse or child.  As stated, it can also include the inability of a mother and daughter, son and father, etc. to enjoy the same relationship they once had due to an injury or death of a loved one.

Essentially due to the injury, or as better stated, due to someone else's negligence or even intentionally wrongful act, the claimant (you) is unable to enjoy the same lifestyle that they once had.

This is part of what we call pain and suffering, and it is difficult to account for what it is worth; however, it is an essential portion of a claim when someone's life has been affected to such a degree.
