Injustice And Victimization Of The Disabled In New York City

Injustice And Victimization Of The Disabled In New York City

Expose accepted and standardized victimization of people injured in devastating work accidents by the NYC Judicial System

Why is this important?

On February 29, 2012, my husband left our home to work the swing shift on the East Side Access Tunnel Project. He had a life altering devastating accident. The man who left for work that day was not the man who came home. He was the sole earner of our household who came home to a totally disabled wife.

A falsified, or fraudulent, MTA Capital Construction Incident Report was manufactured less than 24 hours after my husband’s accident. The defense team knowingly chose this incident report that benefited their position as the basis for their questions asked in depositions and the foundation of their arguments presented to the NY Supreme Court. This invented MTA Incident Report was placed into evidence in the same filing with Bennett’s statement at the time of the accident. Through the Freedom Of Information Law (FOIL) I have proven the manipulation of many facts and circumstances. I discovered the New York City Judicial System at the Supreme Court level that exists “behind closed doors” is not just accepted, it has been encouraged, insulated, and normalized to the point that duplicity is the foundation of the litigation process.

We have made the decision to share, because we know that we are not alone. Please help us to bring this into the light and assist others desperately in need by signing this petition and sharing it with as many people as possible. These professionals and institutions need to fulfill their basic functions as advertised and mandated. If you have had a similar experience and would like to share please contact me on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter under Kerry Ann Galligan Katz, NYC Injustice And Victimization Of The Disabled, or #NYCVictimInjustice. I will post short updates sharing the details of our experience on a biweekly basis. Thank you for helping to tell Governor Cuomo and Mayor DeBlasio that judicial oversight is imperative and that this will not be tolerated. No one should be trapped in a maze of privately accepted brutality and duplicity for doing the right thing and going to work.

Reasons for signing

  • My cousin has been left disabled because of an accident at work due to no fault of his own. His quality of life, and that of his family that depends on him, has deteriorated. I would like to see NYC take responsibility for this workplace failure that was under their oversight.
  • I have seen the suffering that this couple has experienced over 8 years trying to get decent care. Instead they were shuffled from one medical expert to the next, had to go through change in lawyers on the other side so that they had to tell their story over and over and see whole new batches of doctors only to be put off more months and years. This is hard to believe but it is the truth. We need to help them fight for their rights, dignity and benefits. What has bee done to them is a crime.
