Caltagirone calls ‘fair share’ bill unfair to victims
A bill is making its way through the legislature that would significantly erode an injured person’s ability to recoup damages awarded in a lawsuit.
Today, I opposed legislation approved by the House Judiciary Committee known as the “Fair Share Act” that would repeal the joint and several liability law in Pennsylvania.
The joint-and-several-liability law allows claimants to hold multiple parties liable for damages and restitution awarded by the courts, and makes sure injured people are not victimized again by the defendants’ reluctance or refusal to pay.
