Thank you for your new question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
This is a horrible experience you went through. It should have been the hospital personnel that should have stepped in to restrain him if needed or to sedate him. Malpractice claims, which is what this is considered, will still require you to get yourself a medical expert to testify on your behalf that the conduct of the hospital in making you take your son to a hospital 2.5 hours away and not properly restraining your son with sedation and not properly protecting your wife in x-ray. These are all things that they were supposed to do, but you need a medical expert to testify that they acted below the reasonable standard of care in failing to do. A medical expert has to testify as to what the actual reasonable standard of care is.
