In the bustling streets of New York City, even a simple act like crossing the road can lead to unthinkable consequences.
This was a grim reality our young client faced when he was struck by a bus.Initial investigations unjustly blamed our client, accusing him of crossing against the signal and outside of the crosswalk. However, we refused to accept this narrative and swiftly delved into recreating the incident and managed to uncover a crucial eyewitness.
This immediate and rigorous investigation was instrumental in revealing the truth of what transpired.
Our client had suffered a head injury and orthopedic injuries due to the bus driver's negligence.
Jason Krakower, Howard Raphaelson, and Andrew Levine then undertook relentless negotiations that resulted in a substantial recovery of $1.8 million for our client.
Notably, the initial offer before our investigatory efforts was a mere $25,000.
At Raphaelson & Levine, we commit to preparing every case aggressively and promptly. Our early investigative efforts are often the difference between a nominal offer and just compensation.
