A: Under Pennsylvania motorcycle accident law, or motor vehicle accident law, spouses may be able to make claims to be compensated for the loss of society, comfort, companionship and services of the injured, caused by a car accident or motorcycle accident. Read more about a spouse’s right to recover after a Pennsylvania motorcycle accident.
This claim is known as a “loss of consortium” claim and is available for spouses of the injured. These kinds of claims are not automatic and must be proven with evidence. Usually, the spouse’s testimony is sufficient, but in some cases, additional testimony or evidence will be necessary. For example, testimony of neighbors, friends and family members may highlight the extent to which the relationship has been affected by the accident.
