Elmhurst is a neighborhood located in the borough of Queens in New York City, NY. The community was first established by Dutch colonists in 1652 as Middleburgh, as a suburb of New Amsterdam in the colony of New Netherland. When the British took over New Netherland, they renamed the village to New Town. By 1897, the community had been renamed to its present name of Elmhurst, meaning “a grove of elms”, to reflect the numerous elm trees in the village. The following year Elmhurst, as part of Queens, was incorporated into New York City. Elmhurst was the site of housing development during the early 20th century. Following World War II, Elmhurst evolved into one of the most ethnically diverse communities in New York City, with residents from 112 countries residing in Elmhurst by 1980.
If you’ve been injured through no fault of your own, under New York law you have three years from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit to seek compensation for your injuries. Under certain circumstances, this period can be delayed or extended; for example, the three-year period for an injured minor does not start until he or she turns 18 years old. In addition, if you have a personal injury claim against the government or a government or public agency, you must provide the government or public agency with notice of your claim. This notice period is shorter than the statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit; in the case of municipal governments and agencies, the notice period is only 90 days from the date of your injury. If you do not file your lawsuit prior to the expiration of the limitations period, or if you do not provide timely notice in cases when you have a personal injury claim against the government, your claim may be permanently dismissed.
Although you may simply wish to settle your personal injury claim to put your accident behind you and get badly-needed cash to pay for medical treatments and to help make up for lost wages while you miss time from work, it is highly advisable that you consult with an experienced personal injury attorney before offering or accepting any settlement offer. Keep in mind that the first settlement offer you receive from the insurance company rarely represents the maximum compensation they are willing to pay to you. Having an attorney advocating for your interests and negotiating on your behalf can give you the best chance at maximum financial recovery.
