San Diego car accident attorney Mark C. Blane briefly explains the (sometimes forgotten) "Loss of Consortium" claim in relation to a California accident and injury case. This claim can be added onto an injury lawsuit by the non-injured spouse if there is evidence that the injured spouses' injuries have interfered substantially with the marital relationship. You have to be careful in using this claim as it may not be warranted and it can cause a jury to not like it being in the lawsuit; also, the claim is an underlying claim of the injured spouse's injury claim. For more information, you can call Mr. Blane directly at (619) 813-7955.
