Yes, the parents of the grandson could hire a lawyer and file a civil rights suit on his behalf.
In the end, almost every case involving injuries while in custody boils down to a civil rights lawsuit although there will certainly be other causes of action thrown in.
The lawyer will also need to send what is known as a "notice letter" to the police department soon since there is a very short period of time to do so (months) and if he doesn't then it can waive all or a portion of the causes of action.

Please ask any follow up questions in this thread. When all of your questions have been answered, then I would ask that you give a Positive Rating (of course I'd suggest Excellent) since that is the only way I get credit for my work and also please consider clicking "BONUS" as a nice way of saying "thanks" for a job well done, although this is neither required nor expected. When looking at the answer I ask you to bear in mind I can’t control what the law is and whether it helps you, I can only tell you what it says, and I assume you want truthful information.
However, please do not issue a rating of any kind until all of your questions have been answered and please use the Reply button to ask additional questions or to provide answers to my questions.
