A Mexican woman who tripped and fell due to a flaw at the entrance of a store. She suffered severe injuries, including even skull fractures.
Jury awarded: The case was resolved by $900,000
“One night, as I returned home from work, I stopped to buy something at the store. When I came out, I tripped on the cracked sidewalk, fell to the floor and hit my head very hard. The pain was terrible; I couldn’t move. I waited for an ambulance, which took me to the hospital. When the doctors checked me, they found that I had a skull fracture.
Since that day, my life changed forever and I am not the same. Simple things just aren’t simple anymore. Now everything is very hard to overcome. I haven’t been able to go back to work and I’m not sure if I will ever be able to do so. I am worried about this because, without a job, I will not be able to survive and support my family. Besides, when the accident happened, I did not have health insurance. I didn’t know what to do, what my rights were. I needed to find lawyers that were prepared to win.
Gorayeb & Associates drew my attention because of their slogan: ‘Lawyers for the People.’ That made me think that, if they call themselves ‘Lawyers of the People,’ it must be because they care about helping people like me.
That’s when I found out that Gorayeb & Associates is a law firm with experience, and that they have won over $350 million for other victims who suffered accidents similar to mine. I liked that.
There was yet another thing that caught my eye: They offer transportation from my house to their Manhattan offices. That was a relief, because it was very hard for me to move.
I met Chris Gorayeb in person, a very pleasant and kind young man. One of his assistants, who spoke perfect Spanish, explained to me the procedure to file a complaint. They understood my situation perfectly. Something inside of me told me that that I would be okay if I chose them as my lawyers. And I was right: They obtained a favorable verdict for me for $900,000 Now, my family and I are much more stable thanks to Gorayeb & Associates.”
