What happens if a person dies from a truck accident and what is loss of consortium?

If a person dies as a result of a truck accident, it can become a wrongful death case. The types of damages sought can depend on the survivor’s relationship with the deceased.

Family members who have lost a spouse, partner, or another close family member due to someone else’s negligence may be able to file a loss of consortium claim. This kind of personal injury claim is specifically dedicated to compensating for a relationship’s loss and can include companionship, affection, love or sexual intimacy.
