What difference does it make to a possible wrongful death lawsuit if there is more than one named defendant?

The number and type of defendants named in a wrongful death lawsuit can have drastic effects on the outcome of the case. For example, in medical malpractice cases, the number of defendants can influence the cap placed on the damages. But even in non-medical malpractice cases, the number of defendants will have an effect on the outcome of a case.

In addition, the number of defendants will also make a difference in the outcome of a case. For instance, when suing a trucking company the defendants will likely include the truck driver, the truck company, or the company which produced the truck and its parts. The number and types of defendants will likely make a difference in the evidence presented to the jury.
