Loss of Consortium

If a loved one was injured or died in a car accident, you are entitled to compensation for “Loss of Consortium.” What does Loss of Consortium mean? The death or injury of a loved one deprives family members of the affection, companionship, comfort and support they would have experienced were it not for someone else’s negligence.
