    You should consult with an attorney about your rights regarding any claims for your son. His medical expenses under PA law will be covered either by your car insurance or the other drivers insurance for the amount of coverage on the applicable policy. There is a possible claim for pain, suffering, aggravtion and inconvience on behalf of your son that requires additional information to comment on.
