Joint liability is a condition where at least two people or parties are liable for an individual’s injury. If more than one party is found to be responsible for a person’s injuries, all liable parties are going to have to pay certain amounts of money to compensate a victim for an injury. The amount they each have to pay depends on how liable for the injury the judge sees them as being; the more liable a person is, the more he/she will be forced to compensate the injured party.
