When working construction jobs, you resign yourself even partially to the fact that anything can happen at the job site. All you can do is hope for the best, and prepare for the worst. Even then, no matter what you do, you can never really anticipate what life is going to throw at you.
When I reached for a 200-lb. bucket my co-worker let fall from a hoist, I never thought that I was going to fall off the building and incur the injuries that I did. Fortunately, my safety harness saved my life, but after a sudden and violent deceleration, I sustained injuries to my back, neck, spine, and brain. I was a mess after my accident. Physically, I required surgery and was forced to rely on countless painkillers, injections, and physical therapy sessions just to get through my day. I was also unemployed and confined to home, and my marriage started to fall apart. Emotionally, I was exhausted, depressed, and angered by my circumstances.
Confused and frustrated, I turned to New York City Construction Accident Lawyer, Michael Gunzburg, P.C. for help. Boy, am I glad I did! From the beginning, Michael Gunzburg, P.C. helped me understand my case. He was thoroughly familiar with the Labor Laws, and he told me from the onset that my case was unique in that it could lead to the making of a new law. I had no idea what to expect; before my case, I had never been involved in any sort of legal matters. However, Michael Gunzburg, P.C. sat down with me and patiently explained the legal proceedings so that I could understand everything. As a result, throughout my time working with him, I never felt neglected or ignored. On the contrary, I participated in and was informed of my case because Michael Gunzburg, P.C., took great pains to keep me involved every step of the way. I'm deeply grateful for the efforts he made to communicate with me.
Best of all, Michael Gunzburg, P.C., was there for me during the good times and the bad. When my case was initially dismissed and thrown out of court by the judge, Michael Gunzburg, P.C., balanced compassion with unrelenting determination to keep my spirits high and see that justice was done. The appeal process added an extra two years to my case, and although I felt discouraged at times, Michael Gunzburg, P.C., worked with me through it all, sharing every triumph and setback. Ultimately, his hard work paid off: we won the case on appeal, went to trial before a jury on my damages, and received a multimillion-dollar settlement from the Court.
Life is unpredictable, but fortunately, with Michael Gunzburg, P.C. on my side, it wasn't one-sided. Although I experienced a devastating accident, I survived and was able to move on with my life because I had an attorney who didn't give up on me or my case. Even after my case was initially thrown out, Michael Gunzburg, P.C. fought back and won me the damages I deserved. Looking back, I do not think I could have found another lawyer who would have represented me with the same compassion, conviction, and determination as he did. Someone was looking out for me up there when I found New York City Construction Accident Lawyer, Michael Gunzburg, P.C., and for that I'm thankful.
