Louisiana Revised Statutes Tit. 23, § 1104. Quantification of employer fault

In a suit brought pursuant to R.S. 23:1101 , the fault of persons immune from suit in tort under R.S. 23:1032 shall be assessed as a percentage of the aggregate fault of all persons causing or contributing to the employee's injury, and the fault so assessed shall not be reallocated to any other person or party.  The recovery had in such a suit by the employer or any other person having paid or having become obligated to pay compensation shall be reduced by the fault so assessed.  This reduction is in addition to but not duplicative of any reduction made pursuant to Civil Code Articles 2323 , 2324 , and 2324.2 and R.S. 23:1101(B) .
