Complaint Review: Appellate Division 3rd Dept
Appellate Division 3rd Dept Corruption Reins Supreme Albany New York
I have been fighting NYS Workers Compensation for 8 years. Based on a 1917 law which established "exclusivity", injured workers are prevented from suing their employers for pain & suffering, negligence, and lost wages which would be available to any other injured person based on negligence law.
The attorneys on my case were corrupt, and refused to fight for me. I therefore joined the huge number of injured workers who are attempting to fight their case to the Appellate Division, pro se.
I am highly educated, and therefore, was in a better position than most to establish a defense. I had evidence proving corruption and racketeering between the insurance carriers, the workers compensation Judge, and various physicians, in order to minimize damages for workplace injuries. In comparison, Social Security found me totally disabled for just one injury.
Along the way, I was designed timely and appropriate medical care. My occupational disease worsened, and requests for surgery were ignored. I became inoperable and disabled for life, further developing additional injuries which the Court refused to recognize.
I consistently appealed to the Appellate Division. Despite ample evidence, I was only once able to obtain access to medical care, after 5 years of waiting. The original WC law promised timely access to medical care and benefits, yet it took my 8 years before I started to get a weekly check.
Recently, five of my cases were resolved in a 6 page decision, which basically reiterated the exact same reasons for denial as the Board, despite AMPLE evidence to the contrary. In fact, it appeared that the Appellate Division didn't even read my brief.
I have notified 3 different attorney generals, inspector generals, commissioners of labor and workers compensation, and various advocate groups of corruption, along with evidence. I had attorneys who stalled my case for a year for a racketeering lawsuit, and then at the last minute backed out. They got paid off by "someone" so that they would know exactly what evidence I had.
From what I have seen, the New York Court System is utterly corrupt. I can cite numerous instances on my file alone, and have spoken with close to a hundred other WC victims.
I have contacted the FBI and sent them a copy of my evidence on CD. They never even responded.
There are substantial coverups, payoffs, and bias against anyone who complains.
I have been severely damaged by this process. My faith in humanity is shaken. I did everything I was supposed to do, and yet, I was victimized at every turn.
Yes, lawyers will refuse to take your case. Yes, they are afraid. They should be. But, if you refuse to fight the problem, you are part of the problem. The very reason this corruption exists is because those state employees who take part are complicit, as are the attorneys who are supposed to be guarding the door.
I thought I would get justice at the Appellate Division, but in fact, they ignored hundreds of pages of evidence, and never even gave it a second thought.
And, the Court of Appeals refuses to hear any workers compensation case.
Thus, the state has effectively violated every single injured workers right to due process and equal representation.
