On average, more than 200 New Yorkers are injured every day in motor vehicle accidents. The streets of New York City are so busy that even the most careful driver or alert pedestrian can be involved in an accident as a result of another driver's carelessness or recklessness.
As common as it is to come upon a crash scene or hear the sirens, nothing prepares you for the shock and pain when it happens in your own life. At Raphaelson & Levine Law Firm, we work closely with victims of auto accidents and their families to understand the impact that an accident has had. We draw on more than 70 years of collective experience in personal injury litigation to ensure that every resource available is used to help our clients receive compensation for every aspect of damage they have suffered as a result of an accident.

Proven Advocates for Accident Victims
Our accomplished trial lawyers have a reputation for recovering money awards that have set standards, and our law firm has been featured in New York magazine's annual listing of New York's Top Personal Injury Litigators and New York's Top Verdict & Settlements. We handle accidents that have caused catastrophic injuries, and we win monetary awards that account for every need of our client. These awards include economic projections of lost income during the course of a worker's lifetime, projected future medical expenses and future needs that a catastrophically injured client will have over the course of his or her life.
We have represented motor vehicle accident victims who suffered brain trauma, spinal injuries, amputated limbs, facial scarring and other life-changing injuries. We work with medical specialists and many other professionals to obtain damages for past and future medical expenses, lost earnings, permanent disability, disfigurement or chronic pain, plus compensation for emotional trauma and, in some cases, punitive damages.
