A probate attorney told me that a "trust and estate are the only ones that would have legal standing to bring a lawsuit against the doctors." Is this true?

Depending on the case A Guardian At Litem may be able to.
You have misunderstood what was said, or they didn't understand what to do.
A medical malpractice suit could be brought, if timely, by the injured person or his Guardian/Conservator if he is alive, or by his heirs and estate if he died. If you can prove malpractice, and are timely [within a year] of learning of the malpractice and 'injury', and are the qualified person to bring the case, feel free to contact me to discuss the facts, evidence, etc.
