Cross Indemnity

Griffin Wheel makes wheels for railcars. Acuren performed industrial inspections at the Griffin Wheel factory in Kansas City, Kansas. When a forklift accident at the factory injured an Acuren inspector, Griffin Wheel looked to Acuren for indemnity. Acuren declined. On a contingent fee basis, we brought claims to enforce the indemnity contract, despite procedural challenges and novel legal questions surrounding the contract language. After focused deposition discovery, both sides asked the court for summary judgment — an all or nothing proposition. The case was resolved with a favorable settlement hours before the motions hearing.
