The History of the Diamond District in New York City, New York

The stretch of 47th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues in Manhattan started to become known as the Diamond District in the 1920s. Before that, Maiden Lane was the place to go for diamonds and jewelry. But diamond dealers started moving away from Maiden Lane as the Financial District grew and rents increased.

The Diamond District experienced tremendous growth during WWII, as Orthodox Jews, many of whom were Europe’s leading jewelers, escaped the Nazis by making their way to the U.S. and settling in New York.

The Diamond District remains one of the biggest diamond and jewelry districts in the U.S., with 90% of the diamonds in the country passing through New York.

In addition to nearly 3,000 businesses associated with the diamond industry, visitors to the Diamond District are just steps away from the iconic Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Times Square, The MoMA, Broadway, and Radio City Music Hall.

Our Personal Injury Law Firm’s Primary Practice Areas

We routinely recover significant compensation for victims injured in:

Car Accidents

Traffic around the Diamond District inevitably leads to traffic accidents. Whether you are involved in a crash with another vehicle, a pedestrian, or a bicycle, we can help. Don’t let the complexity of New York’s no-fault insurance laws prevent you from seeking compensation after a car accident.

Construction Accidents

Construction is more deadly in NYC than anywhere else in the country. If you’re injured on the job, you are likely covered by workers’ compensation. But, you could be entitled to additional money from a third-party lawsuit. We have years of experience (and success) helping injured construction workers navigate complex accident claims.

Motorcycle Accidents

Passenger vehicles are notorious for failing to watch for motorcycles. If you’re in a crash, you are extremely vulnerable to severe injuries such as traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, and amputations. We will help you fight for the money you need to move forward with your life during and after recovery.

Slip & Fall Accidents

If you were injured because a property owner failed to keep the property safe for visitors, you could be entitled to compensation. Slip and fall accidents can cause you significant medical bills and force you to miss work. You shouldn’t have to foot the bill when someone else is responsible for your fall.

Truck Accidents

Truck accidents can occur for all kinds of reasons: overloaded cargo, lack of training, aggressive driving, or mechanical failure. Due to their size and weight, trucks cause substantial damage when they collide with a passenger vehicle, pedestrian, or bicycle. When you allow us to handle your truck accident case, you’ll have peace of mind that we are doing everything we can to get you the compensation you deserve while you take the time you need to recover.

Wrongful Death

When someone’s negligence has caused you to lose a loved one, we understand the pain and anger that you feel. We help families get justice when their loved one was taken from them too soon by a preventable accident. You don’t have to face the next steps alone – our compassionate advocates fight tirelessly to make at-fault parties pay.

Other Practice Areas

Damages Available in Diamond District Personal Injury Cases

Most of our clients are able to recover compensatory damages that cover the full range of their economic and non-economic losses.

Economic damages cover financial losses, such as:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages (past and future)
  • In-home domestic services or nursing care
  • Out-of-pocket expenses related to your accident
  • Prescription drugs
  • Medical devices
  • Modifications to your home or vehicle to accommodate a disability or limitation caused by your accident

Often referred to as “pain and suffering,” non-economic damages cover more subjective losses, such as:

  • Physical pain
  • Emotional trauma
  • Loss of enjoyment of life activities
  • Disability or disfigurement

In some cases, punitive damages may be available. They’re rarely awarded, and they’re reserved for cases where the defendant’s conduct was particularly outrageous or reckless. 

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

There are usually no upfront costs. The total cost will depend on the circumstances of your case. Most personal injury lawyers charge a contingency fee. That means they don’t charge you unless and until they recover a financial award for you. Their fee will be a percentage of your award.

If they aren’t successful in getting either a settlement or favorable trial verdict, you won’t owe anything. That allows you to pursue compensation at no risk to you. 

Statute of Limitations in New York Personal Injury Cases

If you’re injured in an accident in NYC, you’ll typically have three years to file a lawsuit to recover damages in a personal injury case. If you are seeking damages in a wrongful death lawsuit, you have two years to take legal action.

There are many unique circumstances of accidents in New York that could put your case in a category with a shorter filing deadline, such as a medical malpractice case, a workplace accident, or an accident involving a government entity.

The deadline for your specific case will depend entirely on the facts of your accident. It is best to consult with our skilled Diamond District personal injury lawyers as soon as possible so that you don’t miss out on the opportunity to recover the compensation you’re owed.

Once the statute of limitations for legal action has passed, you will not be able to recover any compensation – even if there is no question that the at-fault party is completely responsible for your injuries.
