Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

You cannot sue the government, you could get your son a civil rights attorney locally and they could sue the prison on behalf of your son for violating his civil rights if his injury was the result of something that the prison or its employees caused to happen through their acts or failure to act.

In order to sue the government, under the state sovereignty laws, you have to show the government entity was more than just normally negligent, you have to show they were GROSSLY negligent, meaning violating some law or statute that they were bound to follow.

If they violated his civil rights, you need to get him a local attorney to pursue the prison for his injuries.
