Club Fire Tragedy
Club Owner's Insurance Company Pays Out To A Victim's Family
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

 (Providence-AP) -- A man whose son was killed in the West Warwick nightclub fire is receiving about one thousand dollars from the club owners' insurer.
   Steven Minicucci, the man's lawyer, says the money awarded by Essex Insurance Company will be used to cover medical and burial costs. Minicucci would not release his client's name.
   Club owners Jeffrey and Michael Derderian had a one (m) million dollar insurance policy for The Station nightclub.
   Included in that policy is something called medical payments coverage. Anyone who is injured or dies on the property can file a claim for up to one thousand dollars with the insurance company to
cover various costs resulting from injuries or death.
   Minicucci, president of the Rhode Island Trial Lawyers' Association, says the payment by the Derderian's insurance company does not mean the club owners are acknowledging liability for the
February 20th fire.
