How Do I Find Out If A Business Is Insured?
My son was attacked and severely injured after leaving a nite club in Ohio (Oct 01). After the incident, we found out through police reports that the club has had several other similar incidents. In March 2002, the nite club had a riot inside and outside the bar (200-300 people)and several other local police departments had to respond. Since then, the bar has closed (lost their lease). My son has consulted an attorney and is trying to find out whether the bar owner was insured at the time of my son's attack. Does anyone have any insite to "how to find out whether a businees has
insurance"? The bar owner will not respond to the lawyer's notifications. The police reports indicate my son did nothing to instigate the incident. He has had two very expensive reconstructive surgeries to repair the damage to his face ($36K). Please, please, if anyone has any idea on how to locate this information, we would very much appreciate your recommendations. Thank you so much!

Thanks so much for your response. We were able to locate another similar case agains the nite club, however, the judge awarded a "default" judgement. I think this means the judge found in favor of the plaintiff because no response/defense was received from the club owner(s).
