Bethpage, New York is the site of the GOLF US OPEN hosting greats like Tiger Woods. Bethpage, New York is also the home of a large Toxic Dump site that is the cause of an underground Toxic plume that spreads across Bethpage and parts of long island. A plume is a collection of Toxic materials that travel as a result of underground water flow.
Not only is Bethpage a former Toxic Dump site and the present origination of a large Toxic Plume that exists today in long island, but it is also a federally protected hazardous waste site part of the federal governments “Superfund”. Superfund by definition is a federal government program that attempts to clean up the nation’s uncontrolled hazardous waste sites. Once a site is considered a Superfund site, the federal government has identified the site as a National Priority that requires a cleanup in order to protect the surrounding environment and the health of those that live in it.
It should come as no surprise to those that live by and around the Northrop Grumman site in Bethpage, New York, that the Nation’s largest Manufacturer of Aircraft and Equipment for the U.S. Government, has contaminated the soil and waters in Bethpage and created a plume that has spread in long island.

Our efforts investigating and uncovering those responsible for seriously injuring the families and friends of the New York Personal Injury community are limitless. In one particular case which caused severe birth defects to children in the remotes areas of the Dominican Republic, our office has worked several years to hold an American Power company liable, for illegally dumping toxic coal ash in these areas.
Large companies that bury waste in the neighborhoods and parks of innocent families should be punished severely for the injuries that their reckless acts cause. Large Companies that pollute remote areas where people are uneducated should be punished severely for the injuries that their acts cause. Progress and Big Business must be held accountable, which is why it is the mission of the Raphaelson & Levine Law Firm to give a voice to these people and a voice to all injured in the New York Personal Injury Community.
