Having worked as an emergency transportation coordinator, I have experience in looking into the future and scanning the horizon for any problems that might arise out of a given emergency situation. Following my gut feeling helped me a lot on that one hot day in August. But this wasn’t someone else’s accident and evacuation, this was mine. I never saw the step coming; without any paint or signs to warn the public, it easily dissolved away into the Manhattan streetscape, a feature only further hidden by the shade of the adjoining building. Before I knew what was happening, I was falling fast and hard. I reached out for the side railing, but there was none. My right shoulder-my dominant shoulder-took all of the impact and delivered a searing pain throughout my entire body. Little did I know I was to live with this pain for the rest of my life.
Several surgeries later, I felt no better. The medical procedures did not take the pain away. I missed my daughter’s wedding that night, and I was never able to return to work full time. I was in pain, yes, but more than that, I was infuriated by the fact that my accident could have been easily prevented if the building’s owner simply painted the step or installed side railings. Frustrated, I began to look for help and for answers.
Eventually, I was led to Michael Gunzburg, P.C Attorneys at Law. I was immediately impressed by the professionalism of his website, and, after reading that he was an experienced NYC
Trip and Fall Accident Lawyer, I decided to contact him. Boy, was I in for a pleasant surprise! Not only did Michael Gunzburg, P.C. respond to me immediately, but after I had decided to pursue my case with him, he went to the accident site the following morning and began to research the circumstances of my fall. Looking back, I fully recognize that this pro-active initial response was the precursor of the exceptional work he would perform throughout my entire case.
Simply put, Michael Gunzburg, P.C.’s legal assistance was outstanding. He was always available to talk when I needed him; he even returned my calls when he was on trial on other client cases. Naturally, our conversations sometimes betrayed his busy schedule. However, whenever I expressed any concerns, he gladly sat down with me and explained the issues slowly and clearly. Most impressively, Michael Gunzburg, P.C. never deviated from treating me and my case with absolute professionalism and honesty; because of his unwavering dedication to my cause, I never once faltered in my confidence that Michael Gunzburg, P.C. would help me get the justice I deserved.
What I gained most from my time with Michael Gunzburg, P.C. was the realization that, especially in legal matters perception can and many times does overtake the reality of a situation. Here’s what I mean: my case lasted for nearly three years, and towards the end, the issue became not what I thought about my accident, but how six independent jurors would see it. We decided to mediate the case, once with an independent mediator who helped initiate settlement discussions. Then we mediated it again with a Court appointed mediator. It wasn’t until Michael Gunzburg, P.C. secured a favorable court ruling that the case settled before the court appointed mediator.
Having won a multimillion-dollar compensation package from the insurance companies for my past and future lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering, I have one man to thank for my case’s favorable outcome: Michael Gunzburg, P.C. Throughout my case, I always had total confidence in his representing my interests; I am certain that he will advocate your cause with just as much understanding, professionalism, and passion as he did for mine. I strongly recommend him to represent you in your accident case.
