In What Types of Cases Can Gorayeb's
Personal Injury Lawyers Help Me?
In New York, any case in which a person has suffered physical injuries due to the negligence of another party, whether an individual, institution, or company, is considered a personal injury.
Therefore, personal injury lawyers, sometimes also known as negligence lawyers, can assist you in any type of injury accident you may have experienced.
However, the field of personal injuries is so broad that each practice area requires specialized legal knowledge. At Gorayeb & Associates, we specialize in the following practice areas.
A workplace accident is considered any type of work-related injury. Although the majority of workplace accidents are associated with industries whose tasks involve high risks, such as construction, high-rise window cleaning, or heavy machinery operation.
Among construction accidents, the most common ones include:
- Scaffold accidents
- Excavation accidents
- Stairway accidents
- Building demolition accidents
- Crane accidents
- Roof accidents
- Roof collapse accidents
- Falling of loads, materials, or objects accidents
- Falls at construction sites
- Electric saw accidents
Truck accidents often require high legal expertise to be resolved. This is because they tend to cause serious injuries to victims and involve multiple insurance companies.
Gorayeb's truck accident lawyers specialize in various types of accidents, such as:
- Forklift accidents
- Truck accidents
- 18-wheeler truck accidents
- Bus accidents
Lead Poisoning Accidents
In 1978, the use of lead-based paints was banned in NY. However, many buildings and toys constructed before that date still contain lead. When a person ingests or inhales lead, it can lead to poisoning that seriously affects their health.
Lead poisoning often does not manifest immediately. It may take several months or even years for symptoms to appear. Therefore, if you suspect that you, your children, or your loved ones have been exposed to lead, see a doctor and contact a Gorayeb lead poisoning lawyer in NY.
Burns from Accidents
Accidental burns can be caused by factors such as:
- Short circuits.
- Contact with chemicals.
Among the most common types of burns are:
- Friction burns.
- Chemical burns.
- Electrical burns.
- Freezing burns.
- Thermal burns.
- Radiation burns.
If you or a loved one has suffered a burn, seek medical attention and contact a Gorayeb burn accident lawyer in NY.
When a person dies as a result of an accident, their family members have the right to seek fair compensation to help them cope with the grieving process without worrying about finances.
Benefits that can be obtained include:
- Funeral expenses.
- Pension schemes for dependents economically reliant on the victim.
- Payments for loss of consortium (a benefit that the victim's romantic partner can claim).
To receive compensation of this nature, it is important to seek the assistance of a wrongful death lawyer.

How Much Can I Win for a Personal Injury Case?
The money a victim can receive from a personal injury accident varies from case to case. To calculate the exact amount for each case, it is necessary to consider its particular circumstances.
In making this calculation, Gorayeb's expert personal injury lawyers primarily rely on the following factors:
- The severity of the injuries sustained.
- The impact of the injuries on the victim's career.
- The impact of the injuries on the victim's quality of life and family relationships.
- The number of parties at fault involved in the accident.
Based on these general principles, the calculation of the final compensation amount is determined by adding various benefits. For example:
1. Coverage of any medical expenses
Fair compensation should cover all medical expenses resulting from the injuries, such as:
- Ambulance services and medical transfers.
- Fees for medical staff.
- Follow-up consultations.
- Clinical studies.
2. Coverage of the rehabilitation process
This includes both rehabilitation therapies and the necessary medical equipment to perform them.
3. Reimbursement of lost wages
Fair compensation provides the victim with payment for wages lost, being lost, or that will be lost due to the injuries suffered in the accident.
4. Payments for pain and suffering
The concept of "pain and suffering" refers to all psychological and emotional injuries that the victim has developed as a result of the accident. The most common ones include:
- Mental stress.
- Post-traumatic stress.
- Panic attacks.
- Development of phobias.
5. Coverage of basic services
When the injuries prevent the victim from performing basic actions, compensation covers these services. For example:
- Purchase of food.
- Taking and picking up children from school.
- Cleaning and maintenance of the home.
- Assistance with personal care.
To receive compensation of this nature, it is advisable for the victim to ensure they seek the help of a personal injury law firm with proven extensive experience in winning cases similar to theirs.
