Loss of Consortium
Loss of Consortium: When Your Injury Has AFFECTED YOUR RELATIONSHIPS
In some cases, an injury may cause harm to your marriage. You may be unable to engage in sexual activity or you may have limited sexual activity with your spouse due to a personal injury. You may be entitled to compensation for what is known as "loss of consortium." This term covers more than sexual activity between spouses. Loss of consortium also may consider:
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of affection
- Loss of services, such as household chores or caring for children
- Loss of emotional support and care
In most cases, compensation for loss of consortium is less than other types of damages. Even so, it is still worth pursuing, especially in cases of severe injury such as paraplegia (when you are paralyzed).
