Loss of consortium occurs when a person is deprived of the benefits of a relationship because of injury or death caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing. In the case of wrongful death, the loved ones of the deceased suffer a terrible loss. They have a right to seek damages for loss of consortium in a wrongful death claim.
