The losses from Sandy keep piling up. On Nov. 26, AIR Worldwide substantially raised its estimate of total insured losses to between $16 billion and $22 billion, while the National Insurance Crime Bureau NICB revised its projections about the total number of vehicles swept away by Superstorm Sandy.
Based on claims information provided from the Insurance Services Office, Inc. ISO, a subsidiary of Verisk Analytics, the NICB now estimates that at least 230,000 vehicles were damaged in the storm. Not surprisingly, New York logged the most damaged vehicles, with 130,000 claims. Meanwhile, New Jersey has reported 60,000 auto claims.
The remaining 40,000 claims analyzed and reviewed by insurers were filed by insureds in Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia.

I am proud to announce that as of November 9, 2012, I have been authorized to practice law in the State of New York. My application was accepted and my swearing in ceremony went without a glitch. On November 9, 2012 I presented myself in Albany, NY, where after a brief interview I was sworn and permitted to begin my practice of law in the State of New York.
