Recognizing the seriousness of pedestrian injuries and fatalities in New York City, city planners developed an initiative called Vision Zero with the goal of completely eliminating these tragedies.

Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents have only increased over the past decade despite a complete redesign of numerous pedestrian-oriented streets. Drivers continue to make choices that can have a devastating impact on pedestrians such as speeding, texting while driving, or engaging in another type of distraction.

For 30 years, Raphaelson & Levine have helped pedestrians injured throughout New York recover maximum compensation.

Below are examples of pedestrian injury settlements and verdicts we have secured for our clients.
