Facts[]

Corey was riding his carriage on the highway when two motorcycles passed him, one on each side, at very high speeds. They frightened the horse, and Corey suffered personal injuries.

Issue[]

  1. How do the defendants share the liability?

Decision[]

Judgment for the plaintiff

Reasons[]

Corey is entitled to one judgment for the full amount of damages that he deserves. The fact that each defendant contributed to the offense means that they are both bound, and liable for the full damages to the plaintiff.

Ratio[]

If two or more parties both contribute to the same offense, then they are all liable for the total damages that result as an outcome of the aggregate offense.
