Our client was returning home to JFK Airport on an international flight. While the flight was in motion, the luggage compartment opened and caused a suitcase to fall on her. It struck her hard on the back of the neck. She had neck and back injuries from that point that required her to go through several months of physical therapy.
The defendants in the case fought the settlement, which unfortunately means that Raphaelson & Levine spent two years litigating with them in Federal Court. We ultimately prevailed, securing a settlement for our client injured on an international flight in the six figures. This covers her current and future pain and suffering as well as medical bills.
