- Loss of Parents: Children who have lost their parents due to the negligence of someone else may recover compensation for the loss of companionship and mental anguish of losing their parents. Minor children may also collect compensation for the loss of financial support that their parents or parents would have provided.
- Loss of Children: Parents who have lost their child or children may recover compensation for the loss of companionship of their child and for mental anguish.
- Loss of Spouse: A husband or wife may collect compensation for the loss of the significant other for the loss of companionship[ and mental anguish. A spouse may also be able to collect compensation for the lifetime of income and services that would be lost by the loss of their significant other.
