COVERAGE AND CONTRACTUAL CLAIMS

In addition to defending tort claims, we are also adept at enforcing our clients’ rights under construction agreements and other types of contracts. In Stabile v. Christy & Viner, supra, we won a decision holding that a contractor is entitled to indemnification, even though the written indemnity agreement was not executed at the time of the accident. We were even able to recover attorneys fees for our client from the indemnitor.
In Williams v. Weiser[*67] we won a decision enforcing a vehicle owner’s motion for contribution against a co-defendant hospital for the hospital’s share of negligence where the hospital settled after a jury verdict.
