Millions Recovered For Injured People

Wrongful Death Archives

Understanding loss of companionship damages

Auto accidents, slip and fall incidents, surgical and medical mistakes and workplace accidents can cause injuries and deaths that can forever alter the lives of victims and their family members. When, for example, a spouse is injured in a car accident, that spouse may no longer be able to return to work and provide financial support for the family. As has been mentioned in previous posts here, those costs can be recovered through a civil lawsuit. However, spouses provide more than monetary support-what about the love, support and encouragement that will now be missing because of their injuries? This "loss of companionship" may also be included as part of a claim.

Wrongful death legal resources are a helpful protection for loved ones who have suffered the traumatic loss of their loved one in a fatal accident.
