I’ve been there. I’ve been t boned in a car wreck that wasn’t my fault. I suffered neck and back pain. Along with a bruise on my chest from the seatbelt. I was lucky. I’m grateful. It could have been worse.
My losses were more than just my physical injuries. I lost the enjoyment of my final weeks of summer. Plans to go places were shelved in favor of rest.
One of the losses Connecticut recognizes is loss of consortium.
Loss of consortium is a suit by a spouse for the loss of the affection, dependence and companionship that he has suffered through the loss of his spouse. Damages for loss of consortium include both past and future loss. “Consortium” includes affection, society, companionship and physical intimacies of the spousal relationship.
If you have been hurt, make sure your lawyer is investigating the full extent of your loss. Including, perhaps, a claim by your spouse for lost of consortium.
Do I have a loss of consortium claim?
