COMMITTED TO HELPING VICTIMS OF THE WORLD TRADE CENTER DISASTER

Douglas and London is representing people with claims against the City of New York, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the owners of the World Trade Center for injuries that were sustained by people who either worked at the World Trade Center site for weeks and months following September 11th or resided in the lower Manhattan area on and after September 11th. Many of these workers and residents were injured after being exposed to the hazardous substances that were circulating in the air over lower Manhattan and at the World Trade Center site. Among the hazardous toxins that were circulating in the air were asbestos, lead, polycyclic aromatic hyrdrocarbons (PAHs), and polychlorinated benzenes (PCBs). Among the symptoms and illnesses that have been linked to this exposure are lung disease, chronic bronchitis, asthma and WTC cough (a cough specifically related to the WTC collapse that could leave people out of work for many weeks). The lawyers at Douglas & London are filing these claims, and, protecting the rights of our heros.


WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

The collapse of the World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001 was a catastrophe of unprecedented proportions. An enormous cloud of dust hovered over the lower Manhattan area and then slowly moved southeast over areas of Brooklyn. This cloud of dust contained numerous hazardous toxins, including asbestos, pulverized cement dust, glass fiber, lead, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and polycyclic aromatic hyrdrocarbons (PAHs). Most of the dust containing these substances came to settle at the World Trade Center site itself. Immediate tests were performed by the EPA to determine the quality of the air and water in the lower Manhattan area. Though the EPA had information to the contrary, the EPA, through its administrator, Christine Whitman, announced that the air was safe to breathe and the water was safe to drink. The City of New York, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and other entities had access to this information and failed to inform the WTC workers and community residences of the risks that they were facing. For this reason, thousands of people have been exposed to deadly toxins and are now having serious health consequences manifest. If you or a loved one is one of these people contact the attorneys at Douglas & London, P.C. now.
