David Perecman Fights for Worksite Safety

•  Notable Attorneys     updated  2009/02/05 10:31


David Perecman, leading attorney for the personal injury accident group The Perecman Firm PLLC, is on the forefront fighting for construction worksite safety. He is pleading for engineers to review their construction site safety plans and complete their construction inspections for maximum safety. This comes after several years of worksite accidents at the former Deutsche Bank tower, with the latest being when a construction worker fractured his leg in an accident in the basement.

New York City's Buildings Department cited the contractor for not providing enough shoring or netting for fall protection.
The tower's sloppy deconstruction is a tragic reminder of the importance of construction safety inspections and regulations. When governments and contractors don't hew to these rules, people get hurt, said David Perecman, founder of The Perecman Firm, PLLC.

According to Newsday.com, "New York City's Buildings Department cited the contractor for not providing enough shoring or netting for fall protection." This same building is where two firefighters lost their lives in a blaze in 2007. Since then, John Galt Corp. and three construction officials have been charged with manslaughter for that incident.

"The tower's sloppy deconstruction is a tragic reminder of the importance of construction safety inspections and regulations. When governments and contractors don't hew to these rules, people get hurt, said David Perecman, founder of The Perecman Firm, PLLC. "Thankfully, the building's deconstruction is nearly complete. For the sake of those who work there, let it finish quickly and, most of all, safely. Moving forward people need to review their construction site safety plans to prevent as many accidents as have happened at this one building."
