Pre-Settlement Funding Can Help Victims of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)May 5, 2016
Years ago, when “Joe” (not a real person) was an amateur boxer, he was known for his fast footwork in the ring. He remained pretty light on his feet later, too, as he moved on to establish a career in construction and start a family.
One day, though, on the jobsite, Joe wasn’t quite fast enough. He had been walking along a steel beam about 10 feet above the ground when a sudden vibration caused him to lose his balance. He fell to the concrete below, sustaining fractures to his skull and jaw.
It would later turn out that Joe also had sustained a traumatic brain injury. He now suffers from chronic headaches and seizures. His construction career is over. And it didn’t have to be; had his employer followed the rules for the jobsite, any work area higher than six feet above the ground would have included fall protections. They would have protected Joe from the worst of his injuries.
When Joe filed a personal injury lawsuit seeking damages and compensation, the company claimed that his headaches and seizures were not the result of his jobsite fall and head injuries he sustained, but rather the boxing career he had abandoned 20 years earlier.
After evaluating the facts of his case, Joe’s personal injury attorney was confident that he eventually would receive a settlement or prevail in court, but in the meantime, he and his family were having a very hard time paying their bills without his income. They were two months behind on their mortgage. Their credit cards were maxed out. Joe’s attorney told him to call USClaims.
