Loss of consortium

    Can I Pursue Compensation for Loss of companionship?

    When a person dies as a result of someone else's negligence or wrongful act, the surviving spouse or family members may file a wrongful death claim or lawsuit seeking compensation for their losses.

    People eligible to pursue compensation after the wrongful death of a loved one can vary from state to state. In most states, the spouse, surviving children, parents, stepchildren or estate representative can file a lawsuit. If you’re unfamiliar with state laws regarding wrongful death, speaking with a wrongful death lawyer can help you determine if you may be entitled to compensation.


    How Can a Lawyer Prove My Demand for Non-economic Compensatory damages?

    In order to accurately value the loss of consortium damages, a wrongful death attorney may work with medical experts and mental health professionals to evaluate the emotional and psychological impact of the loss on the surviving spouse. These experts can provide testimony and evidence supporting the claim for damages. They may also review personal journals, and interview your family and friends to obtain statements regarding the impact the loss of your loved one has had on your life.

    If the decedent was a parent, the attorney will consider the loss of the deceased's guidance and care for any children involved. They will assess the impact of the death on the children's emotional well-being and development.

    They will also consider the tangible aspects of the loss, such as the financial support that the deceased provided to the household. They will calculate the value of the decedent’s contributions to the family, including financial support, childcare, and other household duties.

    By establishing the monetary value of these contributions, an attorney can argue for compensation to offset the financial loss suffered by the surviving family members.

    Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

    MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
