$1,215,000 was obtained for the family of a minor who was poisoned by paint containing lead.
Our client told us that she and her son had lived in a Bronx apartment for three years. The paint started to chip off. Although it took her a while to realize it, her son was poisoned because the paint contained lead. The boy suffered headaches and stomach aches, nausea, diarrhea, loss of appetite and weight loss. The poisoning has caused him physical and psychological damages that will last for the rest of his life. He must now take medication every day because of the intoxication he suffered.
“For three years, my son and I lived in a one-bedroom apartment in The Bronx. One day, I noticed that the paint was peeling off. I told my landlord to take care of the problem but he did not do it. As my child grew up, I noticed changes in my son’s mood. He also had headaches, nausea, diarrhea, stomach aches, loss of appetite and weight loss.
When I took him to the doctor, I was horrified to learn that he was suffering the effects of lead poisoning. At that moment, I felt very angry and desperate. I needed help. The culprits needed to assume their responsibility.
One day, I was reading the paper and saw an ad for Gorayeb & Associates. It was like a ray of hope. It said: ‘Lawyers for the People. Specializing in… ’, and lead poisoning was listed.
I called Gorayeb & Associates and, after a brief conversation with one of their legal assistants, I felt much calmer. My struggle to get justice had finally begun. Through the whole process, they treated us as if we were family. After fighting to defend the rights of my son, they won our case for $1,215,000
I can now take care of my child and find a safe place to live. I don’t know how to thank Christopher Gorayeb and all his staff for everything they have done for us. Thanks a million!”
