Household Services Losses are what the injured party or decedent does for the household (parents, partners, spouse, children). Calculating the Household Services Losses is an additional economic damages aspect in personal injury and wrongful death cases. Sample everyday chores include but are not limited to shopping, laundry, cleaning, cooking, childcare, car care and repair, lawncare, counseling and guidance, banking and record-keeping. Household Services Losses do not include the need for a home health aide. Procuring lost household services would require labor market research. The value of these services can be added to a Life Care Plan or a Vocational Assessment. They are a vital part of making a person whole, or a family whole in the case of wrongful death.
