You may have a case depending on some of the details of the fight and how it happened. There are plenty of attorneys that you can find right here on AVVO. You should speak with a qualified personal injury attorney for more options. Good luck

I agree with my colleagues: your son likely has a case. He should contact a personal injury lawyer right away. Don't expect a fast result though... these cases usually take months and years rather than days and weeks.
Your son should consult with a personal injury attorney, depending on his injury he might be eligible to receive pain & suffering damages in addition to the medical bills. The owner of the bar might be responsible on a number of different theories: 1) inadequate security 2) dram shop liability (i.e. serving too much alcohol)

Insurance companies aren't the richest companies in America with their names on all the major skyscrapers because they like to pay out claims. Always best to retain a personal injury in a situation like this.
The answer is simple. You need legal representation. Call a lawyer. Depending upon the facts, your son may be entitled to substantial compensation in addition to the payment of any medical bills and lost earnings. My firm has handled many similar cases. 215-665-1100
