Injuries Sustained at Holiday Parties- Who is liable


Tindall Logo

The holiday seasons there are often many holiday parties that will be organized in various homes and offices.


Unfortunately, often innocent individuals sustain sometime catastrophic injuries due to some poor decisions made by the host of the parties or their invited guests. There is little that is worse than becoming injured during the holiday season. It is normally a time when you are hoping to relax and enjoy families, friends and good memories - not face the grim reality of painful days and night recovering from injuries that have been needlessly inflicted upon you by the wrongful and careless actions of another.


The team here at Tindall Law Firm, LLC has put some information together to inform any of you, who may be the unwitting victim of injuries during the holiday season due the wrongful conduct of another. Read More 


  Loss of Consortium Explained



Under Connecticut law, husbands and wives may recover damages for "loss of consortium" due to the impact upon his or her life, when their loved one is badly injured because of the wrongful conduct of another. 


To help illustrate this, consider the following hypothetical where "Bob" is severely injured in an automobile accident, due to violations of our safety traffic laws by another. In the ensuing personal injury lawsuit, "Bob" will sue the negligent driver for damages resulting from his physical injuries. Additionally, "Bob's" spouse may also bring suit upon the driver to compensate her for the loss of consortium she suffers as a result of "Bob's" injury. 


Loss of consortium under CT law is defined as the loss of affection, society, companionship, involvement in spousal activities and sexual relations, as a consequence of the injuries and losses sustained by injured spouse, due to the wrongful conduct of another.

Legal claims of this nature tend to arise after one spouse is seriously injured or killed by a third party's negligent or intentional acts, and this has a corresponding ripple negative impact upon the life of the other spouse.  The claim is what the law calls "derivative" of the severely injured spouse's claim - meaning that the case for loss of consortium rises and falls upon the case of the injured spouse. If the severely injured spouse loses his or her case, the loss of consortium case is lost too. However, though loss of consortium case is dependent upon the main injury case, a jury provides a separate damage award for the loss of consortium claim, in addition to the damage award for the severely injured spouse.
