Dust Caused by Subway Construction May Endanger Health, Angers New York Personal Accident Lawyer David Perecman


New York personal injury lawyer David Perecman comments on the

"noxious odors and dust plumes" caused by construction of the Second Avenue subway. Blasting and near-constant drilling are thought to be large contributors to the poor air quality and terrible smell.

Perecman, a personal injury lawyer in New York for over 30 years, is concerned that air toxins from the construction may be threatening the health of New York City citizens.

As work on the new tunnel moves forward, there are increasing questions about air quality near the Upper East Side construction site. While the dust has not been officially classified as toxic, its potentially harmful effects have been on the mind of many area workers, residents and politicians.

“Area residents have reason to feel skeptical about the quality of air they’re breathing. More than two weeks after the 9-11 attacks, New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani was reassuring. He said, ‘The air quality is safe and acceptable’ and other officials backed his statement up,” said New York personal injury lawyer Perecman.

This past Saturday, it was reported that the MTA said dust monitoring devices have exceeded established levels in the past month.
