After a 43-year-old Pepsi Cola truck driver had their life altered by a reckless truck driver, they turned to Raphaelson & Levine for justice.Known as a family man and hard worker, our client loved working hard as a truck driver delivering Pepsi Cola while looking forward to watching his two sons play school sports after work.
His life and American dream was torn away when a reckless truck driver’s dangerous actions caused a collision on the Long Island Expressway, leaving our client with serious spinal injuries including herniated discs in the back and neck, and tremendous pain and suffering.
Personal injury attorneys Howard Rahaelson and Andrew Levine, partners, had previously mediated the case at NAM and had the courage to recommend rejecting an offer of $1.5 Million, instead pressing forward to trial. With a continued fight on our client’s behalf, we diligently prepared for trial.
With the trial date approaching, through skilled, expert negotiation Howard Raphaelson secured an additional $500,000 of compensation, earning our client a truck accident settlement of $2,000,000.
We are proud to be known as the “voice of the injured,” and ensure our clients have the resources they need to heal and take care of their families following a life-altering injury.
