Lack of Safety Precautions at Indian Point Nuclear Reactor Angers New York Personal Injury Lawyer


New York personal injury lawyer David Perecman, a strong advocate for workplace safety, speaks out after a New York Daily News story reveals that the Indian Point nuclear plant lacks essential firefighting equipment like sprinklers and fire extinguishers.

Said New York personal injury lawyer David Perecman, founder of The Perecman Firm, one of New York’s workplace accident law firms, “This is a disturbing possibility. An employer needs safety precautions to ensure the safety of their employees and neighbors. These safety precautions are required by law and are put in place to prevent workplace accidents and protect everyone in the work environment and surrounding areas. And to think, this is nuclear power plant 24 miles from New York City. A workplace accident could be devastating.”

Also of critical concern to the people of New York and personal injury lawyer Perecman, plant owner Entergy is actively seeking exemptions from federal fire safety requirements. With the exemptions, workers would shut the plant manually in case of a fire, instead of automatically through fire suppression systems.

The nuclear facility sits on an earthquake fault and has suffered two fires since 2007.
