Q: If someone is suing can i sue the same person as well?
Can i join another person lawsuit for financial compensation?
Your question has absolutely nothing to do with criminal law. If you want to sue someone, that's a CIVIL matter.
Just because someone else is suing someone, doesn't mean you can join their lawsuit (or file an independent action against that defendant). to "get on the gravy train". You have to establish by evidentiary proof that you suffered damages and that party is liable for your damages. There are also statute of limitations that may bar any such lawsuit
Consult with a civil litigation lawyer in your area or do your own research on the Sacramento County Superior Court website.
A: You should get an attorney if you want to sue someone. The court will sometimes join cases but the facts would have to be very similar if not exactly the same. A good CIVIL litigation attorney can help you understand what options are available.

if you are asking if you are sued, can you sue them back, then YES.
anyone can sue anyone at any time for anything. The question is whether you would win and whether you can afford to hire a lawyer to do so.
if small claims that is a different matter.
