More One57 Neighbors Prepare To Sue Over Crane Collapse

New, 1 comment

Two dentists with a practice at 119 West 57th Street are suing Pinnacle Industries and Lend Lease over the collapse of the crane at One57 amid Hurricane Sandy. And they won't be the only ones. A tipster passes along this flyer, found in the lobby of one of the few West 58th Street buildings not evacuated while the crane dangled. From an attorney who says he was evacuated on October 29, the flyer reads:

I am preparing a claim to be filed against the crane operator, the construction manager, and the building developer, the New York City Department of Buildings, and other responsible parties to be discovered. Please contact me at your earliest convenience if you would like my firm to seek compensation for your resulting damages including lost use of your apartment, lost income, business interruption, out of pocket expenses, and emotional distress, etc., as well as to address concerns that this construction project be completed safely. This surely won't be the last such effort.
