Consolidation

November 27, 2017

The process by which one or more lawsuits with the same facts and/or involving the same legal issues are combined into one case in an effort to speed the judicial process and promote judicial economy.  This is a common tactic used by the insurance defense attorney so that he/she does not have to try the same case against the defendant more than once, when there are multiple injured parties from the same injury-causing event.
