The Astoria neighborhood in Queens has a rich history that goes back to the mid-1600s. The land was originally called Hallet’s Cove, after the owner and his wife who settled in the area. Development began to surround Hallet’s Cove called Astoria Village, and Hallet’s Cove was incorporated in 1839.
During the late 19th century, German settlers moved to the neighborhood and established a furniture and cabinet-making district. This created a vibrant middle-class community. In 1870, Astoria Village was incorporated into Long Island City.
Today, Astoria is home to history and many attractions, including:

You are entitled to damages for past losses but also future losses as well. That means that you can recover lost wages or medical bills and expected future lost wages or expected future medical bills. A lawyer can help you calculate your total damages and prove them to insurance or in court.
New York law applies pure comparative fault principles in personal injury cases. Under pure comparative fault, you can still recover some money for your injuries, even if you are partially responsible for causing the accident. In fact, you can still ask for money from the defendant, no matter how much responsibility you have.
For example, if you are 75% responsible for causing a car accident and the defendant is 25% responsible, you can recover 25% of your total damages. Of course, the goal is always to minimize your liability. However, it’s reassuring to know that you can still get some damage even if you are mostly at fault.
In New York, you have three years to file a personal injury lawsuit and two years to file a wrongful death lawsuit. If you wait too long before filing, then you lose the opportunity to pursue damages. A personal injury lawyer will make sure that you don’t miss the deadline as long as you hire them far enough in advance.
