Torts question - joint tort feasors
« on: May 09, 2005, 09:46:56 AM »
Ok, I'm looking over my notes and see something about joint tort feasors, joint and several liability, and concurrent tort feasors.

Is there a difference or are they all referring to the same thing?

Joint tortfeasors - 2 or more acting together breach the same duty and cause an indivisible injury

Concurrent tortfeasors - 2 or more acting independently breach a duty (same of different) and cause an indivisible injury

Joint and several liablity - can be either joint or concurrent tortfeasors; all individually liable for entire amount of damages.
