Raphaelson & Levine Has Helped Victims Recover More Than $500 Million In Verdicts And Settlements
Litigation in cases involving Fen-Phen, asbestos, tobacco and — more recently — Vioxx, Celebrex, and Guidant defibrillators are examples of the types of cases that our New York City law firm has undertaken against the manufacturers of these substances that cause horrible injuries to thousands of people across our country.
Below are brief summaries of toxic exposure lawsuit settlements we have secured for past clients.
$500,000 injury Settlement
Learning Disability From Lead Paint Poisoning
$250,000 injury Settlement
Brooklyn Fire Extinguishing System Malfunction
$500K Apartment Lead Poisoning
The parents of a 10-year-old child sued the landlord after their boy ingested paint chips in his apartment. The child developed learning disabilities that Howard Raphaelson successfully linked to the ingestion of lead paint chips. The matter was resolved prior to jury selection for nearly $500,000.
The defendant’s attorney informed the Raphaelson Law Firm that this payment represented the largest individual award ever paid by the defendant’s insurance carrier in a lead paint exposure case.
$250K Fire Extinguisher Malfunction Toxic Exposure
An individual was at a gas station in Brooklyn when a fire extinguishing system malfunctioned causing him to be sprayed with chemicals. Our client developed a respiratory ailment and was diagnosed with asthma. The defendants claimed that our client already had asthma and even had his nebulizer with him at the time of the accident.
The emergency room records from the date of the accident claimed that our client had a prior history of asthma. Through tenacious negotiation, Jason Krakower and Howard Raphaelson were able to secure a settlement at mediation.
Raphaelson & Levine achieved a toxic exposure settlement of $250,000 for the victim.
