Celina, you may very well have a case (cause of action) against the carnival ride company for negligence if the ride was defective or they failed to secure him properly. Contact a personal injury attorney to review this claim. Most personal injuries will review the case at no cost to you and if they accept it they will only charge a percentage of the settlement they obtain. If no recovery, there would be no fees owed to the attorney.

I'm sorry to hear about your son and hope he recovers quickly. Sometimes in these cases it is important to document the condition of the ride and how the accident occurred as soon as possible. You should contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible and make sure you preserve any photographs or other evidence that you may have.
