In a personal injury or wrongful death case, the injured person’s spouse may be able to get compensation for their own losses. Loss of consortium is the diminishment of a relationship with a spouse, including the loss of assistance with household chores, sexual relations, comfort, and companionship. When someone dies or becomes seriously injured, their spouse suffers as well. Berman & Simmons can help you get the payment you need and deserve if your spouse was a victim of personal injury or wrongful death.
