Raphaelson & Levine Law Firm represented a client in a rear-end crash that occurred in Woodbury, Long Island. The case was litigated in Suffolk County Supreme Court. Our firm's aggressive litigation strategy paid off, as the court awarded summary judgment in March of 2018. This meant our client would be entitled to interest over and above any ultimate award. The matter was very Challenging and strenuously defended. The defense argued there was no police report, that the impact was very minor and resulted in a mere 186 dollars in property damage, and that the client's injuries were pre-existing and the pre and post-accident revealed no changes and only degenerative injuries.
Despite the significant challenges, Raphaelson & Levine successfully presented the claim at an arbitration. Our client was awarded 275k. The client was additionally awarded approximately 75k in interest due to the firm's aggressive litigation strategy. His total recovery was 350k!
