Full Definition of Apportionment

Apportionment is an allocation based on some proportions.

The legal term apportionment means distribution or allotment in proper shares.

Most often apportionment pertains to the allocation of a loss between all of the insurance companies that insure a piece of property.

Apportionment also refers to the time when you come to buy/sell a property and wish to ensure that you only pay electricity, gas, council tax etc for the period in which you own the property. Apportionment in effect means sharing expenses between the buyer and seller of a property. In that way, each party will bear his or her fair share at the date on which the property sale is completed.

The person doing your conveyancing, usually a solicitor, should be able to sort these details out.

In Law, Apportionment is the method used to determine a claimant’s payment for permanent workers’ compensation injury awards. For instance, if you have been previously injured your employer is allowed to reduce benefits for your current injury through the process of “apportionment.”

Factors such as causation, risk factors, age, prior industrial accidents, prior awards and prior disabilities are all factored into the apportionment decision making process. Specific requirements must be met to apportion a certain percentage of your past injury’s disability from the amount of disability that you have with your current injury. Generally, claimants are entitled to their full workers compensation benefits. If you need help getting workers compensation talk to a work comp lawyer.
