What you can claim

Loss of consortium includes the loss or impairment of comfort and companionship; it acknowledges the impact your accident-related injuries can have on your relationship and how it may affect your spouse or domestic partner. It also includes loss of servitium (the domestic services you provided to your spouse or domestic partner before you sustained your accident-related injuries).

Eligibility

If your dominant injury has been assigned an ISV of 11-100, your spouse or domestic partner may be eligible to claim for loss of consortium under Section 65 of the Civil Liability Act 1936.
