Brooklyn Bridge Fiery Crash Kills One

Howard Raphaelson
Partner, Attorney

Wednesday an auto accident on the Brooklyn Bridge killed one person and sparked a blaze that overwhelmed three vehicles and cut off a vital New York City road at the start of the morning rush hour, on one of the most hectic travel days of the year.

Our hearts go out to the victim of the horrible accident on the day before Thanksgiving. At a time when we are all celebrating being thankful, we are also reminded that every day there are certain risks in our lives that we have no control over.

After this tragedy, we remember that each day is a gift and that we never know what tomorrow may bring. It's important to keep in mind that there's nothing more precious in our lives than our well-being and the health of our families. So today we empathize with the victim and their family of this awful tragedy. Simply put; they need our support, service, empathy, and kindness.

We remain steadfast and remember that we represent accident victims in the greatest city in the world and that excellent lawyering is about having the best resources available in our industry. Most importantly, during a victim's time of need, we must be there for them in every way possible.

This holiday season Raphaelson and Levine will remind our entire legal team that our greatness comes from our willingness to be advocates for the community and the people we represent. We pledge to provide the legal representation and support that has earned us the reputation as The Voice of the Injured.
