The Connecticut Supreme Court has ruled that Connecticut children have the right to sue for loss of consortium in personal injury cases that involve the parent. In this ruling the court also overturned a decision made twenty years ago that found the children of a plaintiff were not entitled to compensation when a wrongful discharge forced the plaintiff to take a job much further away from home – the long commute depriving her kids of her love and affection. As with most cases, the courts put some restrictions or limits on the claim.
