Raphaelson & Levine is a personal injury and medical malpractice law firm based in New York City with a reputation for winning multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for people who have suffered catastrophic injuries.
Founded in 1992, Raphaelson & Levine treats every client as if they are the only client in the firm. We are a law firm with the significant resources necessary to see every case through to trial, if that’s what we believe it will take to secure the largest possible outcome for our clients. Our experienced team of lawyers and support staff work tirelessly for people who have been victims of negligence caused by irresponsible building owners, general contractors, product manufacturers, business owners, employers, reckless drivers, derelict landlords and careless city and state governments.
In the past year Raphaelson and Levine attained a structured settlement for a client that will make lifetime payments in excess of $40 million dollars. The settlement was reached on behalf of a child whose leg was crushed when a collapsing roof landed on him as he was passing by the building. The recovery, considered the second largest settlement ever in the State of New York for this type of injury, was settled in only 18 months as a result of the firm’s aggressive litigation of the case. Most important, the outcome ensures that the child–who underwent multiple surgeries and had to have his leg amputated–will be taken care of for the rest of his life.
Additionally, the firm garnered a multimillion-dollar settlement in a product liability case involving a major auto manufacturer and our client, another child who had been rendered a tetraplegic in an accident that our investigative team was able to trace back to a design defect in the vehicle he was riding in. Several leading product liability attorneys in New York and New Jersey had already passed on the case when we took it on. Although it ended up being a huge battle, our firm prevailed and won a huge settlement, the amount of which will provide this child with a comfortable life he would not have otherwise have been able to afford.
Raphaelson & Levine is equally proud of our support of the community in which we live and work. Members of our team are on the national advisory board for the Sarah Jane Brain Foundation, an organization that helps children who suffer from pediatric acquired brain injury. We are also a lead sponsor of the Long Island 2 Day Walk to Fight Breast Cancer.
Raphaelson & Levine is also featured prominently in Verdict Search’s Top NY Verdicts of 2010, which publishes top recoveries throughout the State.
