Ambulance Chasing on 57th Street: Class-Action Suit Brewing Against One57

(Click to zoom)

We warned of a deluge of lawsuits surrounding the crane accident at One57, and it looks like the tide is already rising. A tipster sent Curbed a photo of a flyer seeking claimants for a suit against Extell, the contractors on the site and the city’s Department of Buildings. Turns out the attorney putting together the suit lives on West 58th Street and was evacuated during the accident. The sweetest revenge is judicial!

Meanwhile, The Observer got our hands on a copy of the dentists’ lawsuit, and it turns out Extell was named in that suit, as well. As we all know, this ought to be interesting, since the only thing Gary Barnett loves more than building buildings is spending his time in court.
