Getting a nightclub’s insurance information after slip and fall…

Submitted By: Anonymous (USA)

I had a slip and fall incident in a nightclub which caused me serious injuries. I have a lawyer taking care of the incident. I was wondering how long does it usually take to find out if the night club has insurance, and their insurance policy?

It’s been two months and they don’t have an answer for me yet. I was wondering if that’s normal? Thank you so much.

Dear Anonymous,

I would not consider it abnormal that you don’t know anything about the other party’s insurance as yet. However, I would not suggest waiting much longer.

Often a delay tactic is to completely ignore a claim in hopes that it will simply go away. If you think about it, some cases probably do go away for that very reason. However, if your attorney is diligent, and I am sure he or she is, he/she will not allow this to go on forever.

Normally, the next step will either be a letter with a time frame or a lawsuit. The threat of a lawsuit is usually enough to promote some action. If they didn’t have insurance (which is HIGHLY unlikely), you would probably know this by now.

The above is general information. Laws change frequently, and across jurisdictions. You should get a personalized case evaluation from a licensed attorney. Find a local attorney to give you a free case review here , or call (888) 647-2490.
