I was one of several people injured in a multi-car accident. One driver was found at fault for the entire accident in both the police report and insurance arbitration. I have sued this driver. Other injured people have filed lawsuits against other drivers and other parties. I have mentioned in my lawsuit that these are related cases.
The defendant's attorney is seeking to dismiss my case as I have not included other parties, whom they say need to be apportioned liabilities. Is this a valid defense? Am I required to sue everyone? I am pretty clear my injuries were as a result of this driver's actions alone. There is both the police report and insurance statement supporting this. Whom is the burden of proof on to establish this?
