As you’ve probably heard, Team Juggernaut’s Brandon Lilly suffered a very serious injury while competing on Sunday at the LA Fit Expo. Brandon collapsed under a 744 pound squat attempt and was taken to the hospital.
During 5 and a half hours of surgery on Monday he had the following repaired in both legs: torn quad tendon, torn patella tendon, torn MCL, torn meniscus, also in his left leg he suffered a torn ACL, torn hamstring tendon and broken patella.
Though Brandon does have insurance, the insurance company is trying to claim that his status as a ‘pro powerlifter’ will reduce their coverage responsibility for him. This is an issue that Brandon and his wife are seeking legal counsel about. This ongoing legal issue is why we have removed the donation fund to help with Brandon’s impending medical costs.
UPDATE FROM BRANDON: Good news, I was able to refile my coverage appropriately and it appears all but an optional ambulance ride will be covered. So in the end things worked out and every single penny raised was refunded. I’ll post some updates this week as I get up and moving.
Brandon has a lot of great products available here and if you’d like to show him your support, pick up one of his ebooks, webinars or apparel items which are all on sale through Sunday! #365STRONG
