Corona is one of the newest neighborhoods in Queens, NY, relatively speaking. In an area that was colonized 400 years ago, Corona dates back to 1854. Since then, this neighborhood has become central to the borough.
However, its central position has a dark side. Car and truck accidents happen on neighborhood roads, and slip-and-fall accidents happen in local businesses and apartment buildings. When they happen, these accidents can disable you from working or even caring for yourself.

Corona was established in 1854 when developers sold the first lots in the northeast corner of Newtown. It remained a part of Newtown until 1872, when it became known as Corona. Sources disagree on the origins of the neighborhood’s name, but it may have come from Corona’s position as the “crown” of Queens.
Today, Corona sits next to one of NYC’s most famous sports venues, the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center at Flushing Meadows. It has apartment buildings, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and businesses.

Under New York law, you can only file a car accident claim against a negligent driver after a serious car accident. We understand your needs after you suffer a serious injury and will fight for your right to recover compensation.
Most Corona motorcycle collisions happen when car or truck drivers fail to spot motorcyclists before it’s too late. When a motorcycle accident happens, a motorcycle does not protect its rider. Even when you wear a helmet, you could suffer serious injuries to your limbs, neck, and back.

Businesses require a regular flow of goods in and out of the neighborhood. Semi-trucks and delivery trucks carrying freight can weigh up to 40 tons. On Corona’s crowded streets, trucks can cause devastating injuries to motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists.
Oresky & Associates, PLLC stands up to trucking companies that cause truck accidents through their negligence in loading, driving, and repairing their fleets.

New York law allows you to recover compensation for both economic and non-economic losses after suffering an injury in an accident.
Economic damages include the financial costs of your injuries. Examples include:
Non-economic damages include the diminishment in your quality of life due to:
New York does not cap damages. Oresky & Associates, PLLC will fight for the maximum damages you can recover for your injuries and the resulting losses you suffered.
New York uses pure comparative fault to allocate damages in a lawsuit. Each party responsible for causing the accident gets assigned a percentage of the fault. A personal injury victim who bears a share of the fault has their damages reduced.
Suppose that a claims adjuster assigns 15% of the blame for your accident to you. The insurance company will reduce your payout and only pay 85% of your losses from the accident.
We will advocate for you to ensure that you bear the minimum amount of blame based on the facts of your case.
You have a limited time to file a personal injury lawsuit in New York. In most cases, you must file your lawsuit within three years of your accident. Wrongful death cases must be filed within two years of your loved one’s date of death.
A judge will likely dismiss a lawsuit filed after the applicable deadline – so it’s important to seek legal advice to protect your rights.
Two or three years might seem like a lot of time. But it does not include the time to process an insurance claim and settle the case without going to court. You should start your claim as early as possible so that you can try to resolve your case without incurring the time and expense of a lawsuit.
Oresky & Associates, PLLC can evaluate your deadlines and help you settle your case or file a lawsuit to recover fair compensation.
If you were injured in Corona, Oresky & Associates, PLLC will provide experienced local legal representation to help you get fair compensation.
