Can I sue for loss of companionship in a wrongful death case?

You can sue for loss of companionship in a wrongful death case. To do so you must qualify per statute and/or case law. In Kentucky this means the husband/wife and/or children for the loss of a husband. I have successfully argued for and been paid on parental loss of children consortium as well. That is a very fact specific set of circumstances. A loss of consortium or loss of companionship case is a different portion of a case than a wrongful death case. The wrongful death case is for the person that passed. The loss of consortium case is for loved ones for what they endure as a result of the loss.
