NYC Traffic Fatalities on the Rise

New York City has long held a reputation as a high crime place. But recent statistics show that violent crimes, specifically murders, are on the decline. According to the Mayor’s Office, the city has seen a 26% decrease in murders from this point last year. Whether you believe these statistics or not , most New Yorkers agree that the number of deaths due to violence has definitely decreased from the mid eighties to the early nineties. There is more that can make a city dangerous than the just the murder rate. Car accidents and traffic fatalities continue to be a scary reality in Brooklyn. In the span of one week in October, six people were killed in traffic accidents in NYC- including a 64 year old man, mowed down by a hit and run driver in Brooklyn.

Insurance companies are in business to make money. They have representatives, adjusters and defense lawyers to limit their exposure if one of their policy holders are involved in a traffic accident. Their goal is not to pay on the policy if at all possible. They are well trained and experienced at shifting the blame of the accident away from their client and if necessary, on to the injured party. Hiring an accident attorney who knows the legal system, personal injury law and of how to make sure you receive full and fair compensation is a must have after an accident. The good news is that you do not have to pay an experienced Brooklyn accident lawyer to represent you at the beginning of a case. A contingency fee is customary, they are only paid when they collect money in your case.
