Toxic Construction Dust in Luxury New York Apartments Endangers Health, Angers Accident Attorneys Like David Perecman
Date:2/16/2010

Toxic dust in posh East 47th Street apartments has higher levels of carcinogens than Ground Zero.

New York, NY (PRWEB) February 16, 2010 -- Residents of a luxury Manhattan apartment building are rightfully concerned about their health say New York construction accident attorneys. A construction news report shows that dust in their apartments has higher levels of a carcinogen than what was found at Ground Zero.

The dust, which covered the inside of some apartments like "snow", was the result of careless construction work performed on the building's facade. The toxic substance in the dust is called crystalline silica.

Toxic dust is not unique to New York. However, Manhattan construction accident attorneys know that overexposure to respirable crystalline silica can cause silicosis, a disabling, nonreversible and sometimes fatal lung disease.

An environmental testing-company, Microecologies Inc., reportedly found "highly elevated levels" of the carcinogenic dust in one tenant's apartment last May, according to the New York Post. The resident claims that the dust caused him to experience breathing trouble and eye irritation.

Building management has denied any wrongdoing.

"It will be important to ascertain if the building allowed its residents to go into an unsafe environment," said New York construction accident attorney David Perecman.
