How to receive damages for loss of companionship

If you have lost a loved one in a car accident, you will have experienced firsthand the loss and grief that comes with it. It is impossible to put into the words the sense of loss and grief that you will feel. That said, it is important to know that with time and the right services, such as therapy and counseling, things will get better.

You will know better than anyone that no amount of money will ever replace the person that you love. However, when you are also struggling financially in addition to grieving, things can be even harder to handle. By claiming loss of consortium, you may be able to receive financial damages specifically for the loss of companionship that you have experienced.

What is the loss of companionship?

The legal description of the loss of companionship can vary - you may also encounter it as "loss of consortium" or "loss of affection." It accounts for the loss of the emotional benefits associated with being in a partnership or marriage. This includes emotional support, intimate relations, love and affection, parental support and care.

How can I prove the loss of companionship?

In order to successfully claim for back damages for loss of companionship, you must be able to show that you were in a stable and loving relationship. You will usually need to show that you lived together or spent a significant amount of time together.

If you have tragically lost a loved one in a car accident, you should take the time to grieve before engaging in a lawsuit to gain back the damages that you are entitled to.
