Nathaniel Dupont (plaintiff), a truck owner and operator, was injured and permanently disabled in an accident involving a CAT 988 loader owned by White Construction Company (White) (defendant) and driven by an employee of Limerock Industries, Inc. (Limerock) (defendant). Mr. Dupont and his wife, Janey Dupont (plaintiff), sued White and Limerock. At trial, Mrs. Dupont testified that Mr. Dupont could no longer do household chores, but did not present evidence as to the reasonable value of his domestic labor or the cost of paying someone else to do it. The jury returned a verdict in favor of the Duponts, including an award of $1,025,000 for Mrs. Dupont for loss of her husband’s consortium. The loss-of-consortium award covered loss of financial support, loss of domestic labor, and loss of intangible factors such as companionship. The defendants appealed, arguing that the award for loss of consortium was excessive.
