Reattacment NYS
#7
I’ll try to explain. It’s just been a comedy of errors.
Left work for Occupational Disease/neck.
Took months to establish claim as they fought the entire time. During this time I formally retired because I had no money and no health insurance. Per my union contract I had a controverted WC claim so I was taken off payroll and I would be fired after one year. If I won I would’ve been reinstated. I was so upset and didn’t want to be terminated. Docs had me at 100 % disabled entire time. When my claim was finally established they asked for board panel review. That took months. I won. Went back to court judge said I retired due to injury made monetary awards. They fought it. I lost on full board review. No attorney would take to Court of Appeals. 35 months later I was able to have surgery. Now one year later I am at MMI per my dr and IME. I’ve seen multiple IME’s and they agree with me. So now to try and receive any money at all (which I’ve never received one penny) I have to reattach to labor mkt. went to hearing in March. They asked why I was looking for work now. I said I had to show reattachment to labor market. Wrong answer ! It’s the truth I have to reattach ! 60 job applications later he tossed them out and said there was NO intent made to find a job. So now I go back to hearing for MMI and I’m not sure how much of a mess I made with that statement. It just sucks !,,





First, the judges definitely do rule in favor of the claimant (personal experience). I have always found the WC judges to be extremely fair.

Second, a good, qualified attorney is a basic necessity in most worker's comp cases. I really don't want to judge...but from what you've said so far, it doesn't look like your attorney is doing the best job for you. And if that is indeed the case, then yes, it can be a horrible process.

Like I said in my previous post (the P.S. part), I'm confused as to why you would have to prove attachment to the labor market if you were deemed to have retired voluntarily. Maybe I'm missing something here?
