Loss of consortium pertains to cases filed that enable spouses/ family members of an injured/ deceased person to receive damages. These lawsuits apply to family members when a person has been seriously injured or killed as the result of someone else’s negligence or wrongful action. This method of filing for an accident case is not as straightforward as other types of personal injury or accident lawsuits, and exact rules of determination can vary depending on location. Depending on the situation, loss of consortium can apply to a person who has lost a parent, child, or partner. Most often, it is a claim that is filed by a spouse after losing their partner, and most laws pertain to this scenario.

Loss of consortium is categorized as harm, and it is considered to be general damages. These cases are regarded as non-economic damages, which means that money is merely a substitute for the immense loss of life.
