What is loss of Consortium?

Loss of consortium is typically a type of claim that is typically made by one spouse for another. For example, if you are involved in an auto accident and you break both of your arms so you are unable to eat, bathe, or do any of your regular activities of daily living by yourself, therefore you spouse has to help you. Your spouse is entitled to recover for what is called loss of consortium. Meaning, the inconvenience they have incurred by having to feed you or bathe you, as well as intimate relations that may have been affected by the accident.

For the specifics of what you are entitled to recover for your loss of consortium claim you will need to ask your attorney.
