Chinatown Fire is Caused by Negligence, New York Personal Injury Attorney, David Perecman, Believes

The building had a history of violations which is strong preliminary evidence in New York City for personal injury attorneys

New York, NY (PRWEB) April 28, 2010 -- A seven-alarm fire broke out in Chinatown last Sunday night. By the time the fire was under control, one person was dead, almost 200 people were homeless, and dozens fell victim to personal injury.

"It's a miracle more people weren't fatally injured," said David Perecman, a New York City personal injury attorney.

The Fire Department of New York (FDNY) do not think the cause of the fire was arson. The cause is thought to have been electrical. Reports indicate that the building contained several dumbwaiter shafts. These shafts are believed to have helped the flames spread quickly.

According to The New York Times, city records show more than two dozen violations for hazardous conditions, including lead paint, exposed wiring, mold, missing smoke detectors, and other problems. In the past, residents have complained about lack of hot water and heat. The records of all of these complaints signal a history of neglect.

In New York, a personal injury attorney should be contacted if you have been injured in a fire caused by someone else's negligence.
