Shannon Brown was a young mother, minding her own business and driving around with her young son Elijah, when a truck ran through a red light and smashed into her car. Her son was miraculously unharmed, but Shannon was seriously injured in the accident.
It took a long time and a tremendous amount of money for Shannon's leg to be taken care of. After an initial surgery, an implanted plate, 18 screws, and a second corrective surgery, her leg still wasn't back to 100%. Truthfully, it probably never will be.
It also took a long time for her to get justice in court. She was smashed by that truck in 2006, but the jury didn't declare a verdict on her case until 2009. That's three years that she would've had to go through this debilitating injury, surgery and physical therapy without any financial aid. At the end of the day, she was awarded over 1 million dollars in damages, to cover her medical expenses and the pain, suffering and trauma she had to live with for the rest of her life.
A story like this is a perfect example of how Pre-Settlement Funding changes and saves lives. Without funding, Shannon's medical bills would've piled up to a point where there'd be so much debt and stress that she'd have to settle her case early. Instead of being awarded $1,000,000, they might have only given her $25,000 or $50,000 - that wouldn't have even covered one of Shannon's complex surgeries!
However, with proper Pre-Settlement funding behind her and a strong legal team in court, Shannon was able to stay strong throughout those difficult three years and get the justice, and the money, that she deserved.
