Wrongful Death Legal Glossary J

Joint and Several Liability Limits: The doctrine of joint and several liability is a fairness rule, developed over centuries to protect injured consumers. It applies when more than one defendant is found fully or substantially responsible for causing an injury or even death to a consumer. For example, if one wrongdoer is insolvent or cannot pay their share, the other fully-responsible wrongdoers must pay the bill, to make sure the innocent victim is fully compensated.

Joint Liability: Liability which rests upon more than one person.

Jurisdiction: A legal area, such as a province or state.
