Senior Driver Jumps Curb, Pins Woman To Shopping Carts, Severing Her Leg Explains Litigation Funding Corporation, Michigan

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) January 3, 2014 - A New York senior drove her car into a rack of shopping carts, pinning a woman with her vehicle.

“This was a traumatic accident for the victim,” said Daren Monroe of Litigation Funding Corporation, Michigan. “The store employee was outside, putting metal shopping carts back into order in their rack queue, when suddenly a car appeared out of nowhere and rammed into her. She was pinned to the rack by the car, which resulted in her leg being severed.”

Eyewitnesses immediately rushed to help the worker who was in an awkward position with her torso having been slammed into the store’s window. The vehicle that hit her was right behind her and the employee’s leg was jammed between the car and the metal rims that held the carts in a secure line. One bystander was able to put a tourniquet on the leg, halting the bleeding until emergency medical assistance arrived.

“The injured woman was taken by helicopter to Hackensack University Medical Center for trauma care,” added Monroe.

The driver of the Toyota Camry that hit the woman was said to be in her late 70s or early 80s. No one knew how she ended up jumping a curb and driving into someone. The police investigation would likely have answers. In the meantime, the store worker would need to be in hospital for a long time to deal with her injuries. She would face operations and rehabilitation and possibly the need for a prosthesis and long-term therapy. She would be facing catastrophic medical bills and may not be able to work again.

Her choices for staying on top of her expenses may well be limited, as most people do not have that kind of money at their disposal. Her best alternative would be to apply for a lawsuit cash advance from a litigation funding company. “That way, she would have virtually instant, fast cash at her disposal, and be able to handle all of her bills – her usual ones, such as the rent or mortgage, and the extraordinary ones relating to her injuries. It only takes a phone call to check out how pre-settlement funding works,” Monroe pointed out.
