What is loss of consortium in a wrongful death case?

Loss of consortium in a wrongful death case is a separate portion of the lawsuit that is for the loss of love and companionship of the person that passed away. The law allows for the jury to consider the loss of things like providing for a family, showing love, and even mowing the lawn or doing the laundry. This is different than the wrongful death case that is brought on behalf of the estate. That case is for the person that passed away. A loss of consortium case is for the family members that are permitted to bring that type of case under the law.
