Kudos for Efforts Of Trial Lawyers

May 30, 1995 | New York Law Journal In his letter (NYLJ, May 17), Jerrold Parker discussed the new, improved procedures for obtaining New York City Police accident reports.

The new procedures were the result of the work of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association which was spearheaded by his past president, Stephan H. Peskin. The old procedure degenerated into a nightmare in which lawyers and clients could not obtain police reports. Such reports are needed in order to process bodily injury and property damage claims and no-fault insurance claims. Claims which could and should be settled quickly were delayed many, many months needlessly. This problem was extensively discussed in this newspaper by prior letters and a "perspective" article by Abraham Fuchsberg, the Trial Lawyers' current president.

The new system is one example of the valuable public services provided by the New York State Trial Lawyers Association. Among other things, the Association has a presence in Albany for positive legislation, such as raising the minimum auto insurance limits. The Association is at the forefront of issues which affect both our clients (i.e., the general public) and our practices.
