Loss of consortium action is usually a standalone claim brought by the spouse or family member of a person who has been injured or killed as a result of the defendant’s negligent or intentional action.
The idea is that, as a result of the defendant’s conduct, the person who was injured or killed cannot provide his or her spouse or family member with the same love, affection, companionship, comfort, society, or sexual relations that were provided before the accident. So, the spouse or family member of the injured person has a claim for those losses.
Proving loss of consortium can be tricky since it is difficult to put a monetary value on your suffering. Moreover, probing into your marital past and bringing it up to the courts can be a sensitive matter for some.
A spouse can make a legal claim regarding an injury and its impact on their relationship. This type of damage is known as loss of consortium.
