I am very sorry that your son was injured.
There are many skilled law firms in the state. A law firm does not have to be big to be highly skilled. You and your son should consult a few other law firms before making a decision to hire another attorney.
If the lead attorney believed in the case, consider calling him/her and asking why the firm decided to cease representing your son (outside of their area of expertise, too costly to continue, not enough insurance?) This information may be helpful when you go to a new firm. Make certain you have a copy of the entire file.
I hope your son continues to heal.
All of the AVVO contributing attorneys here attempt to answer these questions - but sometimes, and this is one of those times, the quesiton is difficult, if not impossible to answer, because the question lacks enough clarity. The details were provided - but what exactly do you want to find out? Clarify that, and then we can help. If not, the short answer is to simply ask your son.
If your son is over 18 years of age, he should be contacting other personal injury attorneys in New Jersey to see if they are willing or able to undertake his representation. If he is under 18, you should be making the calls.There obviously will be issues of comparative fault here.
