My son had an auto accident

Now the other driver is claiming injury. . . . I can't get any information as to what the injuries are that he is now claiming he has. . . .
I assume the other driver has made this claim to your insurer.
What are our rights?
That's a phenomenally vague and broad question.
Should we contact an attorney? My insurance company just keeps say ing that we will handle it and we will be in contact with you and will keep you updated.
I'm not sure what your concern is. It is unlikely that a person who did not claim to be injured at the scene of the accident will be claiming more than $20k in medical expenses. If it appears at any point that there is a reasonable likelihood that the claim will exceed your policy limits, your insurer will let you know. Until and unless that happens, it's up to your insurer to investigate and pay the claim if it deems it appropriate to do so. If a lawsuit is filed, your insurer has a duty to hire a lawyer on your and your son's behalf. This is why you have insurance -- so that you don't have to concern yourself with any of this. Let the insurer take care of this like you pay it to do.

I would advise you to obtain larger limits under your liability policy. $20,000, in this day and time, is woefully inadequate. I would suggest at least $100,000.
