A: Maybe. Depends why they were using force against him. You and he will have to consult with an attorney to discuss all of the facts so that an evaluation can be made as to whether a lawsuit is a good idea.

A: I'm very sorry for what happened to your son. Do you mean CPS as in Child Protective Services? I can't speak for California law, but you should know that as a GENERAL matter, some jurisdictions impose notice of claim requirements governing the filing of claims against such agencies. What that can mean is that notice of a claim must be given within a relatively short period of time after an injury or other damages arises. Mr. Light and Mr. Gribow already correctly recommended you consult an attorney - I'd only add to their good advice for you to do so without delay. In many jurisdictions, these can be in the order of weeks. Good luck to you and your son.

A: It's hard to tell from the little bit of information you have given. You should contact a personal injury lawyer and request a consultation.

A: Sounds like your son was severely by police in Antioch. If so, your son - not you has the right to bring a claim or suit. If your son is a minor child (less than 18byerars) you or another adult would be bringing the claim as your son's "guardian ad litem": an adult responsible to your son.
