There is not a single day that Pedro Meneses, a 55-year-old Ecuadorian, does not think about more than July 15, 2013. He is not only reminded of the pain he suffers in the neck, left shoulder and back, but also, the place where he no longer lives. Since having to reduce expenses, he was forced to move out of the state.
The first stop on that day was the fateful one. He was, like every day, unloading an order when, suddenly, the platform of the truck broke. Pedro fell backwards to the ground and several boxes landed on his head, leaving him unconscious. When he woke up an ambulance took him to the hospital, where he was prescribed pain pills.
Being the main provider of his family, Pedro could not miss work, so he requested two weeks of vacation to rest. However, his condition worsened and he even fell twice when his legs failed. It was there when he decided to go to the doctor, who diagnosed several back injuries that ended up requiring three surgeries.
After spending a year in office tasks, the company demanded that he return to his previous position or, if not, he had to leave. It was at that moment that he contacted Ginarte’s law firm. “For bosses one serves while he can work, but as soon as you can not move you are left out, even though my accident happened due to lack of maintenance on the truck platform. Ginarte’s lawyers have been with me from the beginning and have made me feel like family at all times. I recommend their services one hundred percent.”
During the four years that Pedro’s case lasted, his quality of life changed drastically, since not only could he not continue to pay for the house he had bought and had to change his status, but also he had to stop doing sports and, even, regular tasks such as cutting the grass or washing the dishes, because he suffers pain if he spends a lot of time standing or sitting. “My family and social life has been completely affected, but at least I feel very satisfied that the Ginarte law firm has helped me and won my case,” he says.
