A: The best step could be for you to reach out to attorneys to determine what type of coverage he would be entitled to. Most attorneys who handle injury claims would offer a free initial consult. Some might tell you that they would need to speak with him directly, but hopefully, some would offer you general guidance given the situation. Good luck
