When tragedy struck at a New York jobsite, Raphaelson & Levine fought for justice and secured a brighter future.

A dedicated construction worker's life was forever changed after a devastating fall-from-heights accident at a New York City job site. Through the relentless efforts of the legal team at Raphaelson & Levine, this injured worker secured the means to rebuild and live a life free from financial worry.

Our client, a certified HVAC contractor, was performing essential maintenance at a marina in New York when the unthinkable happened.

A makeshift hoist, improperly set up at the top of an underground vault opening, gave way while lowering an HVAC condenser. As the chain on the hoist ensnared the worker's arm, the immense weight of the condenser dragged him into the opening, wrenching his arm from his body.

After enduring four surgeries to treat Brachioplexopathy, Peripheral Nerve Injury, and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, our client faced a future burdened by unimaginable physical and emotional challenges.

With unwavering determination, personal injury lawyers Howard Raphaelson and Andrew Levine assembled an unstoppable legal team of construction accident lawyers that would prove to be a source of strength and support for the injured worker and his family.

Our client shared his heartfelt gratitude:

"Howard Raphaelson and Andrew Levine were an awesome legal team that worked hard and were a tremendous support to my wife and me after my accident. The team at Raphaelson & Levine worked hard and never stopped moving forward and aggressively advocating on my behalf. I am now financially secure for the rest of my life, and that relieves a huge burden that I have had to live with since this accident."

Together, we tirelessly pursued every avenue of investigation, gathering compelling evidence from engineering and medical experts, life care plan specialists, and economists to present the most persuasive case possible.

Through fierce negotiations and unyielding advocacy, Raphaelson & Levine achieved a monumental victory: a mediated settlement of $5,750,000.00.

This result not only exceeded our client's expectations but also provided him with the financial security needed to face the future with confidence.

He added,

"I am so happy, and I am so grateful for this awesome legal team. The award was above and beyond anything I ever expected, and they exceeded my expectations every step of the way from my first introduction until the end of the case."

At Raphaelson & Levine, our personal injury lawyers understand the life-altering impact of catastrophic accidents. This case serves as a poignant reminder of our commitment to championing the rights of those who have suffered due to negligence.

Our mission is not just to win, but to help our clients regain hope and rebuild their lives with dignity and peace of mind.
