Loss of consortium (spouses)
When people are married, the law takes special notice of the ways that a personal injury claim can interfere with the normal marital relationship. Often, when one spouse is injured, the other becomes a conscripted caregiver.
Certainly it is true that marriage is a relationship founded upon pledges to aid each other “in sickness and in health”.
However, when the need for such aid arises from the negligence of another, the law provides for the negligent driver to be responsible for all of the trouble they caused to the injured and to the marital relationship. Our experienced personal injury attorneys are knowledgeable in the customary ways that such claims are pleaded and proved under Arkansas law.
