In Eugene Sternkopf v. Icon Interiors, Inc. et al, MMP&S tendered the defense of our client, a general contractor on a large construction site, to the plaintiff’s employer. The lawsuit involved a significant injury when the plaintiff fell from a scaffold. The plaintiff’s employer and its insurer initially denied the tender that was issued. MMP&S then commenced a third-party action. After the plaintiff exchanged the Bill of Particulars and other important information concerning how and why the accident happened, MMP&S re-tendered our client’s defense based upon the new information.
This time the plaintiff’s employer and its insurance carrier not only agreed to defend and indemnify MMP&S’ client, but the insurance carrier also agreed to pay all of MMP&S’ past legal bills associated with MMP&S’ defense of the general contractor.
