You can sue the mother and son and claim that the mother negligently entrusted the vehicle to an unlicensed and uninsured driver. If the son has previous speeding tickets, traffic violations, or accidents, your case will be even stronger on negligent entrustment, but giving the car keys to someone with no driver's license is probably going to win on negligent entrustment! Hopefully, the son had the mother's permission to drive the vehicle and did not take it without her knowledge, these facts will have to be discovered.
i practiced law in Corpus Christi for about 8 years, so if you need the name of a good lawyer down there, call me at (972) 447-8388 and I can tell you some.
Good luck to you.
