Additionally, as many contracts and master service agreements contain indemnity language, it is important that indemnity provisions be examined in evaluating the rights of a party against whom a claim has been asserted.  GERMER has attorneys who are qualified and experienced in drafting and interpreting indemnity provisions, evaluating the enforceability of these provisions, and determining if there are other parties who should be held accountable.

The attorneys at GERMER are often asked to provide representation in personal injury matters before the initiation of suit.  This includes accident investigation and representation in post accident proceedings initiated by administrative agencies such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
