Burger King pays $20 Million to Young Brain Injury Victim

April 12, 2010 @ 02:53 PM — by Mark Johnson

This $20 million settlement came as a result of a young boy and his sister playing at the indoor playground at a San Diego Burger King. The boy, who is now 12 years old and severely brain damaged, fell on the tile floor while playing and smashed his head on the hard tile surface.

His family filed a personal injury lawsuit and named multiple defendants including Burger King, the restaurant franchisee, the playground installer and the marketing company. Court papers show the fireman’s pole and the monkey bars had no padding under the indoor play equipment.

The playground was built on hard tile floor;  the boy hit with such force that he sustained severe injuries to the parietal and left front lobes of his brain as well as to his lungs. He was in hospital for over two months and has needed constant care since that time.

Severe case like this will often qualify for and seek lawsuit funding. A lawsuit cash advance pay a family's horrendous medical bills, help provide therapy, and pay all ordinary and extraordinary expenses for the brain damaged family member. right away and get a head start on therapy for their son.

Litigation funding helps families like this one deal with any and all financial issues while they await an equitable verdict.  They can wait out the long legal process without being forced to settle early and inexpensively.  And, if for any reason, they lose their case, their obligation to repay is completely excused.  They do not have to pay the money back.  This is, truly, non-recourse legal finance.
