The Court held that a tortfeasor who settles with a plaintiff may bring a contribution claim against a doctor who allegedly caused new injuries when treating the original injury. If two parties are jointly and severally liable for the same injury, a right to contribution exists. It is immaterial whether the parties are joint or successive tortfeasors; however, both parties must be liable for the injury for which the contribution is sought.
