Welcome! My name is Maverick. I very much enjoy what I do and I hope that you will benefit from this information.
I think that you would be well with in your rights and owe it to yourselves to go see a medical malpractice attorney [MMA] who might help you to hold the initial doctors accountable for their perceived negligence
While we are not permitted to refer a MMA to you, you can use the link below to your state bar to find one:
You should find one that practices in the same county as where the initial doctors that examined your son are located. Also, look for one that has tried at least 3 med mal cases before a jury and one that has practiced med mal law for at least 8 years. Before you go for your first consultation, be sure to obtain a copy of your son's past five years of medical records from all his medical providers and all records for his injury treatments as well as bills related to that injury.
Usually, MMA will evaluate your case for free and if they think you have a good case, they will offer to take it on a contingency fee basis where you only have to advance costs but not legal fees. It is usually 33% if the case settles before trial and 40-45% if it goes to trial.
The key issue here is whether, if the initial doctors has not been negligent and had properly diagnosed your son and treated him in the first instance, what would his condition be today as compared to what is actually is. To prove this, your MMA will need to put a qualified doctor on the witness stand.
