New York Examines Possible Contamination in Public City Schools
Date:2/8/2010

New York's personal injury attorney, David Perecman praise the proactive move taken by the DOE and EPA.

New York, NY (PRWEB) February 8, 2010 -- As a proactive measure, New York City and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have promised to look into possible PCB contamination at five public city schools, with the support of personal injury attorneys. As reported by The New York Times, the million dollar pilot study is designed to test old caulk. The end goal of the study is a plan that addresses the PCB contamination, if it is found in significant amounts. According to personal injury attorneys, New York City schools are taking the right approach.

The best lawyers in America agree that although PCBs were banned in the 1970s, many schools built or renovated from 1950 to 1978 have window and door caulk highly likely to have PCBs.

Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCB) are known to cause cancer in animals and have been linked to disorders of the nervous, reproductive, immune, and endocrine systems in people.

"This demonstration of New York City's commitment to a safe environment for people should be lauded by parents, teachers, and students. Taxpayers should applaud as well. Billions have been spent by companies to settle PCB contamination related lawsuits and it's better to do what the DOE is doing, and that's to head off the problem before it happens," said David Perecman, a New York personal injury attorney.
