Construction safety is a higher priority than minimizing noise
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 11, 2010 -- Noisy construction by the MTA is keeping some residents in Brooklyn up at night. Meg Richichi has been calling New York's 311 line to complain, but her calls have had no effect. Construction accident attorneys in New York are familiar with the compromise between construction safety and convenience.
The MTA is working on a passageway between the Jay Street subway station and the Lawrence Street R train.
While sympathetic for the plight of the residents in New York, construction accident attorneys understand that night work may help make construction sites safer. Deadlines are a reality in construction. The extra time can help workers avoid mistakes caused by rushing. Construction crews only allowed to work during the day may not have time to complete their projects in a reasonable amount of time. And thousands of New Yorkers are waiting for this project to be completed.
"Construction accidents typically occur more frequently if work is done too quickly. If the choice is between noise that keeps someone up or the increased possibility of a severe injury or death, I believe the choice should be clear," said David Perecman, a New York construction accident lawyer.
David Perecman had the 3rd highest construction accident verdict in the state of New York in 2009.
