Car Accident Detectives Seek to Make NYC Safer Place to Live

The car accident attorneys at Block O'Toole & Murphy have chronicled many recent deadly car accidents that have occurred within the confines of New York City. While the frequency of these fatal collisions is still far too high, the N.Y.P.D. has taken an innovative approach to reduce the instances of death, according to the below report in The New York Times.

The Collision Investigations Unit is not a celebrated division of the police department; nor does it garner many headlines. However, the police department appreciates that the recent rash of deadly collisions is too steep a price for our citizens. They have increased the resources and attention devoted to this ongoing concern to curb the number of deadly accidents and hold wrongdoers accountable.

The article also correctly points out that the "Citi Bike" program will only heighten this problem.

Serious car accidents can have an enormous impact on a victim and their family. If you or a loved one have been a victim in a serious car collision, you need to strongly consider hiring an experienced car accident attorney. The Car Accident Attorneys at Block O'Toole & Murphy have been helping innocent victims of deadly car collisions for decades, recording some of New York's top verdicts and settlements.
