The History of the Upper East Side Neighborhood in New York City, NY

The Upper East Side is a neighborhood in Manhattan. Its outer borders include Central Park to the west, the East River to the east, 96th Street to the north, and 59th Street to the south. 

Today, the Upper East Side is known as one of NYC’s most affluent neighborhoods, but its beginnings were much more humble. Native Americans used the area for fishing along the East River Bluffs. As Europeans descended to the area, they settled lands in the Upper East Side for farmlands and market gardens.  

The extension of the New York and Harlem Railroad led to a burst of activity in the area. Immigrants pushed outside downtown New York City to areas like the Upper East Side. By 1880, the Upper East Side had become a middle-class neighborhood with many residents working in nearby breweries, piano factories, and stables. The area became a prime location for development. 

In the 1900s, there was another development boom, and the more modest homes were replaced with mansions and townhouses. Real estate along Park Avenue became sought after once the trains nearby were covered and electrified. Developers and wealthy individuals transformed the area so that it became home to some of the country’s most opulent properties. Eventually, large apartment complexes were erected in the area. 

Today, it is a historic district and a visual representation of urban residential architecture.

Our Personal Injury Law Firm’s Primary Practice Areas

The Law Offices of Jay S. Knispel Personal Injury Lawyers focuses exclusively on helping accident victims and their families. We represent clients who have been injured in:

Car Accidents

In New York City, there are an average of 303 crashes every day. Some of these wrecks occur on the Upper East Side. The skilled car accident lawyers at the Law Offices of Jay S. Knispel Personal Injury Lawyers can help you demand the compensation you deserve. 

Construction Accidents

The Upper East Side is constantly evolving, so construction projects are common in the area. However, in their attempt to quickly erect the next major apartment building or commercial property in the area, developers may overlook hazards or skip necessary safety training. 

Our firm helps people who were injured in construction accidents, including workers, people passing by a dangerous construction site, and those nearby who may have been affected by toxic exposure. 

Motorcycle Accidents

Some people like to ride motorcycles in the Upper East Side to get around slow-moving traffic. However, motorcycles lack the protection afforded by other vehicles, such as a metal exterior frame and safety features. 

When a motorcycle accident occurs, the motorcyclist and their passengers may suffer serious injuries, such as:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Severe road rash
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Facial disfigurement

These injuries can be very expensive to treat, but insurance companies might try to blame the accident on the motorcyclist. Our lawyers will fight aggressively for maximum compensation for your injuries. 

Slip & Fall Accidents 

New York City property owners are required to follow strict building codes and take steps to regularly inspect their properties for hazards to avoid slips and falls. When they fail to uphold these duties, our slip and fall accident lawyers can fight to hold the negligent property owner accountable for the harm they caused.

Truck Accidents

Despite the many regulations that are in place to prevent truck accidents, these crashes continue to occur every day throughout the nation. 

Trucking companies and drivers are incentivized to complete deliveries as fast as possible to get paid faster, which contributes to truck accidents caused by:

  • Speeding
  • Fatigued driving
  • Impaired driving
  • Aggressive driving
  • Inexperienced drivers
  • Poorly loaded cargo

If you have been injured in a truck accident, we can help you demand the compensation you are owed.

Wrongful Death

In the most tragic cases we handle, a victim has died because of the negligent acts of another. While no amount of financial compensation can ever bring your loved one back, a successful wrongful death claim can help ease the financial burden caused by their loss. We can provide compassionate legal representation during your time of need.

Damages Available in Upper East Side Personal Injury Cases

Our lawyers will fight to recover maximum compensation for your case. 

Depending on the circumstances, you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Past, present, and future medical expenses 
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation 
  • Lost wages and lost future earning potential 
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental and emotional anguish and distress
  • Diminished quality of life 

When you contact us for a free case review, we can explain the type of compensation you may be entitled to recover. Don’t settle for less than you deserve.

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

When you hire the Law Offices of Jay S. Knispel Personal Injury Lawyers, you do not pay any fees upfront. We take your case on a contingency, so any payment for our services depends on us receiving compensation for your claim. 

If we recover compensation for your claim, we take a percentage of the award. If we don’t recover any compensation for you, you don’t pay us for our services. 

Statute of Limitations in New York Personal Injury Cases

The time limit to file most personal injury cases in New York is three years. That means you have three years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit. However, there could be exceptions. For example, you must bring a wrongful death claim within two years of your loved one’s date of death.

If you miss the deadline, you’ll lose your right to seek damages from the at-fault party. Therefore, it’s best to reach out to an attorney as soon as possible to preserve your rights.
