Looking For Ways to Share Liability

Connecticut Law Tribune

December 8, 2008

Attorneys who regularly defend motor vehicle and slip and fall cases appreciate the certainty of filing third-party apportionment claims pursuant to Connecticut General Statutes § 52-102b. Pursuant to that statute, a defendant sued under a negligence theory can serve a third party, who is or may be liable under a negligence theory for all or part of the plaintiff ’s damages, with an apportionment complaint within 120 days of the lawsuits’ return date. The pursuit of third-party claims by a retailer or a property owner defendant against a product manufacturer can be more complex.
