What is a Loss of Consortium Claim

Comments Off

A loss of consortium claim is simply the reasonable value of the spouse’s compainship and acts of love and affection that a injured person has lost if they had not been injured . Typically , a claim is made for the spouse of the injured person . As we well know , a serious injury to one spouse impacts the other . It is a seperate and independent claim from that of the orginal injury . The Tennesse Court of Appeals has upheld an award of a loss of consortium claim that exceded the award of the injured spouse .
