Raphaelson and Levine aggressively litigated on behalf of a young Brooklyn resident who was struck in the rear while driving along the Belt Parkway. Our client, who had a history of prior back pain and treatment, sustained a back injury to his lumbar spine (lower back). He attempted physical therapy but ultimately required back surgery. The case was very complex and contained a myriad of issues including prior accidents, subsequent accidents and troubling surveillance video.
Nonetheless, the firm successfully presented the case and was able to obtain a recovery of $825,000 for this deserving client. This money was intended to compensate him for his pain and suffering as well as his lost income.
