A: I'm very sorry for your grandson's injuries. I hope he is okay. You could reach out to attorneys to try to arrange a consult. If this is something you wish to explore further, the faster you move, the better. If there is video evidence, some devices do not retain data very long. Further, depending on the type of entity and whether it is public, there could be notice of claim requirements, which can be short - in the order of days. Therefore, it would be advisable to move quickly to determine if these would apply. Only a medical professional is qualified to address your grandson's care, but it is common knowledge that if you have concerns about the black and blue marks, there are facilities through pediatrician referrals that have more powerful diagnostic capabilities than a walk-in medical center. I hope your grandson is okay and has a healthy recovery from this incident. Good luck
