No contribution claim allowed to recover SIR.

Fact Summary

Contractor who paid $500,000 deductible under its policy for workers’ compensation benefits did not have claim for contribution or indemnity against another contractor’s workers’ compensation insurer that also had coverage for the co-employees’ injuries. Plaintiff’s $500,000 deductible was contractual agreement with its own insurer, and the contribution or indemnity claim was not between co-insurers.
