3.9-10  Joint Control

Revised to January 1, 2008

More than one person or entity can be in control of a premises at the same time.  This is called joint control.  Where control is joint, responsibility for injuries suffered by a person upon the premises may be shared by more than one person or entity.


Cruz v. Drezek, 175 Conn. 230, 234 (1978); Warren v. Stancliff, 157 Conn. 216, 218 (1968).


If there is an issue of joint control, the court will usually have to determine whether an instruction must be given on joint and several liability or on apportionment of damages.
