A: your question is VERY unclear.

did the person getting head butted in the balls go brain dead? or the person who did the headbutting?

were police called and did they make a report? is their a med report explaining why the person went brain dead?

A: Not sure why being headbutted in the nether parts would make you braindead, but assuming it can any assault can be the basis for a suit. However, if the person doing the offense has no money, getting a judgment means nothing. It may enhance his crime, but if he was already sentenced double jeapordy says he can't be retried. But I don't know the full facts so the best bet for him or his family is to conatact a membr of CAOC who handles assault cases and get their opinion--they give free consults.
