The History of the Chelsea in New York City, NY

Chelsea is a historic neighborhood on the West Side of Manhattan. The neighborhood gets its name from the house of retired British Major Thomas Clarke, who named his estate “Chelsea” after the Royal Hospital Chelsea in London, England. The farmland would eventually be inherited by Clarke’s son, Clement Clarke Moore, author of the famous poem, “Twas’ the Night Before Christmas.”

Moore would give some of the farmland to the Episcopal Diocese of New York to establish the General Theological Seminary. Moore divided up his farms into lots for the development of Chelsea and sold them to New Yorkers.

Three decades later, the small, quaint neighborhood in Manhattan began to industrialize. Many factories and warehouses set up shop, which brought immigrants from many countries to work in the region.

Today, the neighborhood is mainly residential and contains a large LGBTQ population. Chelsea also has a thriving art scene, with over 200 galleries in the neighborhood, including the David Zwirner gallery and the Gagosian galleries.

What Does It Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer in New York?

Nothing upfront typically. Most personal injury lawyers in Chelsea utilize contingency fees. This means you only pay attorney’s fees if your attorney recovers a settlement or verdict on your behalf. 

If your attorney doesn’t recover compensation for you, you don’t owe them any fees. If they do, your lawyer will take a pre-agreed-upon percentage of your compensation as a fee for their services.

Statute of Limitations in New York Personal Injury Cases

You won’t have unlimited time to file a claim after an accident. New York’s statute of limitations places deadlines in personal injury cases to encourage victims to file their cases while evidence is still available and witnesses are still around.

In most cases, you’ll have three years to file your case after an accident. The time limit usually begins on the date of your accident.

Contact a Chelsea personal injury lawyer for help determining the statute of limitations in your case.
