Joint and Several
Joint and several definition (adjective)
A joint and several liability is a debt or court judgment against two or more debtors that are each liable for the full amount, regardless of each person’s share of responsibility. The creditor can claim the full debt amount from any of the defendants.
For example, if a court finds multiple parties responsible for an accident and decides on a joint and several judgment, the entire amount may be collected from any one defendant, but only once.
