Elmhurst is a neighborhood that is part of the borough of Queens in New York City, NY. Originally founded in 1652 as the village of Middleburgh by Dutch settlers, the community was a suburb of New Amsterdam (today Manhattan) in the Dutch colony of New Netherland. When the United Kingdom assumed control of New Netherland, they renamed the village as Newtown. The community’s growth was spurred in the latter half of the 19th century due to the construction of a horsecar line. By 1897, the community obtained its present name of Elmhurst, concurrent with Queens’ incorporation into New York City. The name of Elmhurst was intended to reflect the numerous elm trees throughout the community. Following a boom of housing development in the early years of the 20th century, by the 1980s Elmhurst had developed into one of the most ethnically diverse neighborhoods in New York City, with residents representing 112 nations.
Generally speaking, if you suffered injuries while working on a construction site, you are limited to filing a workers’ compensation claim with your employer as your sole course for seeking compensation from your employer for your injuries. Workers’ compensation can provide benefits such as medical treatment and partial wage replacement, but does not compensate you for pain and suffering or lost quality of life. An experienced construction accident attorney can help you to understand your rights and options for seeking compensation for injuries suffered in a construction accident.
Under New York law, you typically have three years from the date of your construction accident to file a personal injury lawsuit for compensation. If you do not file your suit prior to the expiration of this period, the court may permanently dismiss your case and you can lose your right to seek compensation for your injuries.
