How are damages paid if more than one party is responsible for my injuries?

Jun6

Washington, D.C. operates under a joint and several liability rule for economic damages. This means every party who contributed to your injury is responsible for all quantifiable costs, such as medical expenses, therapy, lost income, and many other costs associated with your injury. Washington, D.C. also operates on a modified form of joint and several liability that requires non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering—to be apportioned to each liable party based on degree of negligence.
