The History of the Garment District in Manhattan, NY

In the heart of Midtown Manhattan, the Garment District is known for being home to some of the world’s top fashion designers and manufacturers. But it wasn’t always the center of American fashion. What’s now known as the Garment District is part of what used to be the Tenderloin District and Devil’s Arcade, home to bootleggers, prostitution, and racketeering in the 1800s.

As immigrants were pushed out of the area of Fifth Avenue by the wealthy, they began to move into the Tenderloin District. Many immigrants had skills in manufacturing and textile production. In the mid-1800s, the garment industry grew faster than any other industry, in part due to the invention of the sewing machine.

When the U.S. needed mass quantities of uniforms for the Civil War, textile workers in New York’s Garment District were able to meet the demand. Visitors can stroll down the Fashion Walk of Fame, the only permanent landmark dedicated to American fashion. Nothing shows the area’s history in fashion and textiles quite like The Big Button, which is set for renewal in 2022.

Our Personal Injury Law Firm’s Primary Practice Areas

No matter what type of accident you or your family has suffered, we can help. We have more than two decades of experience handling all types of personal injury cases, including:

Car Accidents

Hundreds of car crashes happen every year in Midtown Manhattan, and many occur in the Garment District. Increasing incidents of distracted and aggressive driving, combined with dense traffic, bicyclists, and pedestrians is a recipe for disaster. We have helped countless victims after they were injured in a car accident.

Construction Accidents

Construction is one of the most dangerous of all industries, especially in New York City, where the death rate for construction workers is the highest in the country. A New York construction accident attorney can help you with a workers’ compensation claim and see if you qualify to recover additional compensation through a third party lawsuit.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists often suffer catastrophic injuries when they’re involved in an accident. Even with a helmet, the lack of structural protection leaves motorcyclists vulnerable to traumatic brain injuries, amputations, and spinal cord injuries. We can help you fight for the money you need for support during and after your recovery.

Slip & Fall

Premises liability claims – whether for a slip and fall at a grocery store or at a sporting event – are quite common and are responsible for a lot of injuries. That doesn’t mean they are simple cases. There are often multiple parties involved, and they will all fight you with everything they’ve got. We’ll stand up for you and hold them accountable.

Truck Accidents

Trucks carrying goods throughout the Garment District are a common sight. Unfortunately, they cause a lot of damage when they run into a passenger vehicle or hit a bicyclist. If you were injured in a truck accident, we can help.

Wrongful Death

We understand the anger that comes with losing a loved one to a preventable accident. We know this is an unimaginable loss. Let us help alleviate the financial worries that you may have about your future, and help you get justice for your family in the process.

Damages Available in Garment District Personal Injury Cases

We fight aggressively to get our clients every penny they deserve. The specific damages vary in each case, but generally, we seek both economic and non-economic damages.

Economic damages compensate you for tangible monetary losses, such as:

Non-economic damages generally referred to as pain and suffering, include:

  • Physical pain
  • Inconvenience
  • Loss of enjoyment of life activities
  • Loss of consortium
  • Disability or disfigurement
  • Mental or emotional trauma

We have an extensive network of trusted experts who help calculate your damages accurately and who are prepared to testify on your behalf in court.

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

Usually nothing upfront. That’s because most personal injury lawyers work by collecting a contingency fee. That means that their fee is dependent on getting a favorable result in your case – either by successfully negotiating a settlement or winning at trial.

Their fee is taken as a portion of the amount they recovered for you. Since every financial award is dependent on the circumstances of the individual case, the cost of attorney fees will vary depending on the case. 

How Long Do I Have to File a New York Personal Injury Case?

In most cases, three years. That’s the statute of limitations for most personal injury cases in New York. There could be a shorter deadline in some circumstances – such as if you were injured on city property or from medical malpractice

Wrongful death lawsuits must be filed within two years. It’s best to contact us as soon as possible after you’ve sustained an injury so that we can evaluate your case and determine the appropriate statute of limitations for your case. If you miss the deadline, you forfeit your right to recover any compensation from the at-fault party.
