Traumatic Brain Injury Suffered While in Prison

A convict was badly beaten in jail, sustaining traumatic brain injury. A lawsuit was filed against the prison and guards.

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) June 3, 2010 - “The gist of this case is that prison guards allowed a vicious beating to happen, without interfering or offering Lawsuit Funding Familyassistance, resulting in an inmate sustaining traumatic brain injury. The injury left the former inmate with a traumatic subarachnoid brain hemorrhage. The man is now easily confused, violently startles at loud noises and is unable to stay focused. The suit asks for punitive damages and compensation to be determined by the court,” explained Daren Monroe, who writes for Litigation Funding Corporation, Southfield, Michigan.

Evidently what transpired is that the plaintiff, Hanni Elabed, was in the clink for robbery when he was beaten in front of three guards and another staff member that watched the commotion. This wasn’t the only time Elabed had problems while incarcerated. In 2008, this Muslim Palestinian had his jaw broken by white supremacists. He was moved from one cellblock to another, but the harassment didn’t stop.

Elabed alleges he asked the guards for help because he was being threatened and even told them about inmates and staff drug trafficking. That episode earned him a stint in segregation after which he was returned to the same block. “He wasn’t there that long before he was attacked by a gang member – a beating that was captured on video surveillance as staff watched. It seems the other inmates were ordered to their cells while the beating continued, until Elabed lay on the floor in a pool of blood having convulsions prior to passing out,” said Monroe

Clearly, this case will take a long time to be settled or have a verdict rendered, and in the meantime, this former convict has a tough row to hoe. He may be without funds, have no job and given the nature of his injuries, may never be able to work again. In a situation like this, he would be well served by applying for a lawsuit loan.

Litigation funding, often called lawsuit pre-settlement funding; is money that arrives within roughly 48 hours once the applicant has been approved. There is no credit check and the person that applies does not need to have a job. They need to have a solid case and a good chance at winning that case to be eligible for lawsuit financing.

“Once the lawsuit cash advance arrives, the victim usually uses the funds to take care of pressing bills right away and then deals with other monthly financial commitments, such as the mortgage, etc. The litigation financing allows them to wait for real justice,” added Monroe.
