Building Investigations

 

There was a survey administered by the New York Department of Environmental Protection in 1990 to assess the publics risk of asbestos contact in buildings. About 68% of the buildings had materials that contained asbestos. The total amount of asbestos in the reached to be approximately 323 million square feet. Out of the 323 million, most of the asbestos was found in thermal system insulation.

 

New York has developed laws and regulations to encourage safe removal of all the contaminated materials. Businesses and many property owners have followed these steps to remove any harmful asbestos materials from their buildings. However, there were those who were suspected of improper handling of the asbestos material. Therefore, the state launched several investigations in 2009 into construction business owners and asbestos- abatement contractors.

 

A contractor in Queens, was sentenced to prison and was obligated to pay a fine of more than $1.5 million in restitution for violating the law. Another contractor in Rochester was suspected of improperly removing and eliminating contaminated materials that were in homes, schools, health-care facilities, and businesses.

Industrial Exposure

 

New York’s old shipyards are notorious for their asbestos- contamination problems. Industrial workers who have spent countless years in heating- systems repair, shipyard repair, and automobile industries have the most asbestos exposure. The most well-known asbestos- related cancer is mesothelioma; and being an occupational disease, it could have been prevented.

 

New York Asbestos Laws and Regulations

 

There have been numerous laws passed by New York to regulate production, usage, and distribution of products containing asbestos. Improving air quality, asbestos abatement, and litigation in state court is what these laws focus on.

 

Asbestos Safety Guidelines in New York

 

Three state agencies, the Department of Health, the Department of Labor, and the Department of Environmental Conservation carry out these asbestos safety guidelines in New York. This state also follows the National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) guidelines published by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Found in Title 12, Part 56 of the Official Compilation of Codes, Rules and Regulations of the State of New York (NYCRR) is the primary asbestos regulations that protect workers in New York. They also fall under the jurisdiction of the Department of Labor. These rules and regulations include air sampling, work area preparation, licensing and certification, abatement, and cleaning; which is what employers must follow when removing asbestos from cites. There is also an Asbestos Safety Program administered by the Department of Health to offer asbestos safety training to protect employees.

Asbestos Litigation in New York

 

New York is one of the most active areas in the country it regards to asbestos litigation. The New York City Asbestos Litigation (NYCAL) court was established to try asbestos cases since there was so many asbestos- related lawsuits. A NYCAL website was created to give law firms access to essential documents, rulings, forms, and other important materials related to asbestos litigation. Cases that are brought about by critically ill plaintiffs who have a short life expectancy are given superior access to the court process. There are similar NYCAL cases that are combined to help rationalize the litigation process.

Goldberg, Persky & White P.C. Client

“It has been a pleasure working with you. You handled my father’s case very professionally and, considering the emotional aspects, very personally. Over a year ago, prior to the diagnosis, my father handed me a page torn from the Yellow Pages showing the ad for Goldberg, Persky & White. He told me that Goldberg, Persky was the company that I should contact if he gets sick. As usual, he gave me good advice.”

2017 Goldberg, Persky & White P.C. Client

“When my husband and I had our first meeting with an Attorney from your office I had no idea of the excellent service that I was about to receive. It has been 12 years since my Husband died and thanks to your firm I have been able to live a comfortable life. Six years ago I found that I no longer could continue to take care of my home, that is when I moved to Calif to be near my youngest son. I moved into a 55+ Village, a very unusual one with over 18000 residents, 210 clubs and organizations, so I am able to keep quite active.”
