A: I agree with the previous answer. It depends on how old he was/is and when it happened. It doesn't hurt to ask them if the offer is still valid.

A: If he was a minor at the time, then you still have time. Whether you have a valid case is another issue entirely. That depends on the facts of the incident and the extent of your son's injuries.

A: If your son is a minor, you still have a chance to bring a case. If he is now an adult but was a minor two years , please call an attorney to discuss this case. There are statutes of limitations involved that could affect your son’s case. Do not wait one single day. Best of luck.

A: agreed depends on age of your son. contact an attorney, $500 seems low but depends on what the total medical bills are? talk to an attorney about these facts.
