What is an Impleader/Third Party Complaint?

An impleader or third party complaint is a pleading in which a defendant brings into the lawsuit a third party who is not already a party to the action but may ultimately be liable for the plaintiff’s claims against the defendant. An impleader complaint is commonly alleged where the third party, often an insurance company, has a duty to indemnify, or contribute to the payment of the plaintiff’s damages.
