Court reviews an award for damages in a wrongful death claim brought before the Tennessee Claims Commission

IN RE ESTATE OF CHARLES B. LEHMAN (Tenn. Ct. App. May 29, 2012)

Claimant filed a claim with the Tennessee Claims Commission to recover for the wrongful death of his father, a resident of Middle Tennessee Mental Health Institute; the Commission awarded damages for loss of consortium, pain and suffering, and medical and funeral expenses. Claimant appeals the amount of damages awarded for loss of consortium and pain and suffering. We affirm the damages awarded for loss of consortium and modify the award of damages for pain and suffering.
