Joint and Several Liability
Joint and several liability describes a situation where two or more parties are responsible for causing an injury to another party whether they were working together in concert or not. An easy example of joint and several liability that everyone can relate to would be a multiple car accident where one driver collides with another which, in turn, causes another collision between drivers attempting to avoid the first collision. Like most other legal terms, there are many factors that come into play when determining joint and several liability. If you have been injured in an auto accident or other type of accident caused by more than one party, an experienced Orlando personal injury attorney such as James O. Cunningham can explain if and how joint and several liability pertains to your case.
