Joseph v. Lovejoy

Verdicts: Joseph v. Lovejoy

$2.7 Million Wrongful Death / Brain Injury Settlement

Mr. and Mrs. Joseph were missionaries preparing to move to India, where they planned on fulfilling their life ambition of serving the poor. Unfortunately, days before their scheduled departure, they were involved in a serious intersection automobile accident, caused by the defendant driver running a red light.

Mrs. Joseph died as a result of injuries sustained in the accident. Mr. Joseph suffered internal injuries and a head injury. Biren Law Group's team of brain experts established that Mr. Joseph's injuries were causing him cognitive deficiencies which would prevent him from ever working as a missionary.

The case eventually settled for $2.7 million, despite the fact that Mr. Joseph could not prove that he had lost any earnings, since neither he nor his wife had an expectation of earning any money as missionaries in Indian.
