It was just an average day, and I was walking down the steps of my sister’s apartment building. When all of sudden, the step riser collapsed, my right knee buckled and locked and I fell straight down into an Indian position. My lower back struck the steps hard, and I slid down the steps to the lobby floor. I was only 23 years old at the time, and the fall left my body in shambles. I needed a total right knee reconstruction surgery with metal in my knee. The accident left me partially disabled requiring years of physical therapy, pain killers and even possible future surgery.
All I wanted was for the people responsible for my accident to make it right. The City of New York issued building violations against the landlord on the defective stairs 3 years before my fall. But that didn’t stop the landlord from blaming me for the entire accident. The first lawyer that I hired neglected me and my case too. That first lawyer even tried to settle my case with a low ball number so he could make a quick buck. Feeling frustrated and betrayed, I found and turned to Michael Gunzburg, P.C. for help. Boy, am I thrilled that I hired him.
Right from the start Michael Gunzburg, P.C. listened carefully to my story and my problems. He included me in the process every step of the way and was very patient and helpful in addressing any concerns and questions. Michael Gunzburg, P.C. worked on my case like it was the only one in his office.
He prepared all my witnesses, my surgeon, my engineer and my other experts for both a liability and damages trial. Michael Gunzburg, P.C. was extremely diligent and gathered all the necessary evidence to prove my case at trial. He spent countless hours in his office and in the courthouse. Michael Gunzburg, P.C. proved that the landlord knew about the defective stair case for years, but never bothered to repair or replace it.
I was comforted and energized to know that Michael Gunzburg, P.C. was on my side, and fighting for me. All because of Michael Gunzburg, P.C., the landlord settled my case for nearly 5 times what my previously lawyer was prepared to take on my case. Michael Gunzburg, P.C. fought for me and my case throughout the entire legal process. I am so glad I fired my first lawyer, and hired Michael Gunzburg, P.C. as my lawyer. I’m so happy about my settlement, I could scream! Can you hear me? If you want to scream with happiness at the end of your case, you better hire Michael Gunzburg, P.C.
