511 N.E.2d 373 (1987)
Appellant's husband died when he was crushed between the chassis of a truck and the truck's dump bed. Appellant, as administratrix of her husband's estate, proceeded against appellee, manufacturer of the truck bed and hoist systems, in negligence and strict liability, and against seller of the truck in strict liability. At trial, the jury returned a verdict in favor of appellant and assigned fault among appellee, decedent and truck seller.
On appeal, the court affirmed the verdict, but remanded to reduce the judgment against appellee based on the contributory negligence of decedent and rejecting joint and several liability. On appeal, the court reinstated the judgment of the trial court finding contributory negligence was not applicable to a strict products liability action and holding Ohio's Contribution Among Joint Tortfeasors Act, Ohio Rev. Code §§ 2307.31 and 2307.32, did not abolish the doctrine of joint and several liability.
The court reversed the judgment of the court of appeals and reinstated the judgment of the trial court, which had assessed the entire money judgment against appellee, finding comparative negligence and comparative fault not applicable to a strict products liability action and upholding the doctrine of joint and several liability.
