Have you been injured in a 3, 4, or 5 car vehicle collision? More then 5? Can you not decide you is responsible for your injuries? Fear not! California Civil Code § 1431.2 (aka Prop. 51), states each defendant driver’s liability for “noneconomic damages” i.e. pain and suffering is several only, not joint and several, in direct proportion to each defendant’s percentage of fault. Thus, you will want to sue and attempt to recover against all potentially liable drivers, because if you don’t you may limit your financial recovery.
