English term or phrase:New York second
The Jones Act insurance company sure knows the rules. They hire adjusters and attorneys that know the rules forwards and backwards. They hire sharks. Literally. These sharks will eat up your case in a New York second. Depend on it. We sure do. So should you
Explanation: Comes from the fast-paced speed of life in the big city, New York, meaning really fast. In theory a "New York second" would be faster than say an "Alabama second" where the pace of life is more laid back.
