$147,000 Recovery Settlement in Lorain County, Ohio

In a recent settlement, Attorney Joe Joseph was able to obtain a $147,000 recovery for one of his clients. The client was struck from behind in an automobile accident that occurred in Elyria, Ohio.  The collision caused the client’s neck to whiplash back and forth. Emergency vehicles arrived on scene and the client was taken to the hospital where injuries were assessed.

As a result of the motor vehicle collision, the client suffered persistent pain in the neck/back region. Numerous avenues of medical treatment were sought in order to alleviate the client’s pain and suffering, but there was no significant improvement. Over a year and a half after the accident the client was seen by a spinal surgeon who recommended and performed surgical intervention. The client received a C4-5 and a C5-6 discectomy with interbody fusion and anterior plate fixation. Following surgery, the client reported to mostly feeling better, but still suffered from residual pain.

A lawsuit was subsequently filed in Lorain County Court of Common Pleas but settled before commencement of a trial.

On November 18, 2019, Attorney Joe Joseph was sworn into the Supreme Court of the United States. 

Through the Ohio Association for Justice (OAJ), Attorney Joseph traveled to Washington D.C. where he sat in front of the Supreme Court Justices and was formally admitted by the Court along with other members of OAJ.

What does being sworn in mean? It allows Attorney Joseph to argue cases before the Supreme Court, use the court’s library as a resource, and have priority seating to hear oral arguments before the Court among other things.

While the process only takes about five minutes, it’s a truly unique and sought-after honor. 

Before being admitted into the Supreme Court, attorneys must be registered to practice in the highest courts of their licensed states for a minimum of three years. On top of that, the Court must believe the attorney is of good moral and professional character and two standing members of the Court must also sponsor the applicant. 

Once these qualifications are met and a strict application is approved, attorneys are formally invited to the Supreme Court to be sworn in.

Describing the experience, Attorney Joseph said “The day was a very special honor.  To sit with many of my colleagues and have my name announced before the Supreme Court Justices and be admitted into the highest court of our land, was memorable and humbling. The history and importance of our SCOTUS is immeasurable and I am extremely grateful to the Ohio Association for Justice for this opportunity.”
