Honduran construction worker wins lawsuit over roof accident
Read more about roofing accidents

12,800,000 obtained for a Honduran construction worker who fell from a roof at a height of 50 feet. He landed on a sidewalk and suffered serious injuries. He is bound to a wheelchair and his lower limbs are incapacitated. After the accident he had to undergo surgery several times, first for his spine, then for his abdominal wall, and later for his left humerus.

Our client ended up paraplegic, his pain is so intense that he has been taking methadone every day since the accident to relieve his grief.

Although we at Gorayeb & Associates could not prevent the pain he is going through, we were able to help this worker from Honduras receive considerable compensation for the personal damages the incident has caused him.

Thier testimony:

I am from Honduras. I came to the United States with the hope of finding a good job so that my family could have a better future. However, the best job I found was in construction. I didn’t have many options because I don’t have an education. I worked for five years and sent what I earned to my family to help my parents take care of my younger siblings. I only kept enough to live in New York. It was hard work and the hours were long, but it was the best way to survive. That is, until I had the accident. I was on the roof trying to lift a heavy load. I wasn’t able to and fell with the whole crane which was five stories up. I don’t remember what happened because I fell unconscious and was seriously injured. My spine was fractured, and also an arm and both legs. I was paralyzed from the waist down. I lived alone and I couldn’t even bathe myself, I had no money. My family also suffered the consequences of this tragedy. After the accident I became very depressed and lost all hope. I didn’t know what my options were and I didn’t know what was going to happen. That was until I found Gorayeb & Associates, they guided me in the case. The building owner was supposed to keep the machine working properly. The people at Gorayeb & Associates fought for my rights. They have won hundreds of construction cases like mine. Thank you Gorayeb!”

Verdict of 12,800,000 in Bronx County Court.

Ecuadorian construction worker wins lawsuit over building demolition accident

6,500,000 earned for an Ecuadorian demolition worker at a construction site. As a result of the owner of the building and the construction company in charge of the demolition not following the safety measures and construction laws of having a physical barrier and signs indicating when people are working, our client was hit by a woman driving drunk causing her serious injuries. We sued the owner of the building and the general contractor who participated in the demolition as well as the owner and driver of the car and won a $6,500,000 verdict in Queens County Court.

Our client’s co-worker was also injured in the same accident but he hired another law firm and they only won $80,000 for his injuries because they did not recognize that the laws that exist to protect construction workers also protected them in this accident. The other attorney only sued the owner and driver of the vehicle that hit the workers involved in the accident.
