My son went into a outlet store the other day and wanted to try on a shirt,he did so and after words he looked around and then left the store did not buy the shirt it was to small later he got home to find that this store had taken a picture of him and called the police and said that he was looking into the dressing room so the detective posted his picture on Facebook and the media wanted to know if anyone knew this person,and of coarse everyone from around this area has seen this post or on the news.and he was labeled some kind of pervert I even got a phone call from my sister from over a thousand miles away stated they also were getting posts and phone calls from almost every one they knew,this has totally devastated my son when all he did was go in and try on a shirt.he stated to me that he absolutely did nothing wrong and what was said about him looking into the dressing room was false.
This all will need to be reviewed by a competent attorney. This is not a do-it-yourself project. Your son should obtain needed medical care and treatment immediately and follow the doctor's advice. Do not give any statements to the adverse party or insurance company nor grant them access to any medical records. Contact a personal injury attorney in your area as soon as possible so that you can protect your rights. You may also find it helpful to review the Legal Guides I have published on Avvo.com dealing with many of the issues you are now facing.
