God bless you, sweetie for taking care of your family and pushing forward after all that happened to you. Life is so unfair sometimes. All I've got to say is to hang in there. Karma always has a way of coming back around and evening things out even when people get away with something.
Thank you, I really appreciate that :) And that is exactly how I have felt for years..Im just waiting. I have literally stood 3 feet from that man on more then one occasion in family court. I had to bite my tongue-especially being in the Mayville court building. Eesshh..he looked right at me and continued his conversation with someone. Having no idea who I was..so sad. I personally feel that if I had made such a negative impact on someone's life, I would surely remember their face!
As for the money, I could sit here all day and describe everything in detail as to what Ive lost and what that money could never give back or compensate but it would be pointless. My children were small..1 1/2 and 3. I feel they were robbed as well as me. The total settlement was $90,000 but I received a third of that. A third went to my lawyer and the rest to pay medical bills back. A little back story first..
I had been at my job as an aid to individuals with developmental disabilities just to the point where I was about to qualify for health insurance. When I was hit, I was on my way home from a mandatory work training. Which I might as well throw that story in here too. Im not asking for pity, but anyone who has been a single parent can truly understand how hard it can be. My children and I were starting over. We had been living in a nice apartment for a few months, I was attending college full time and working my ass off. My little match box car decided it wasn't going to start that day, and I thank god for that. My ex was nice enough to let me borrow his much more sturdy, but beautiful Mustang. I know it took the hit much better then my car would have..anyways, on my way home-I do believe the road is called Hartfield-Stockton Rd. I could be wrong, but I didnt normally take that route. I was going to turn left onto Elm Flat Rd. I remember looking in the rearview mirror, waiting for the oncoming car to pass so I could take the left turn. When I had looked in the mirror there was nothing, which is why I was caught so off guard. The next thing I knew I felt the hit. Im not entirely sure what happened but the car was pushed down and across the road. Im not sure what parts of my body hit what nor do I care to think about it..but I do remember I couldnt feel my arms or hands. I looked up and "Mr.Szot" glanced at me then drove away. However he totaled the Mustang and his car broke down shortly down the road. I was starflighted to Hamot and was really out of it. Im not even sure if he was even arrested.

*continued*
So I became ineligible for my work health insurance. I was out of work for months. Luckily No Fault covered all my medical bills for the first 9 months. Then I was sent to Szot's insurance Dr. He denied me any future coverage regardless to his findings that I had nerve damage which extended to my entire right side of my body. I had been attending physical therapy which seemed to help some, but my right shoulder was getting worse. My range of motion and well my entire body was a mess, but according to him I was, "fine." Without No Fault, I received our lovely government insurance, which I had to pay back. It took 3 years for the settlement to come to a head.
With the countless testing and Drs it took over 3 years for a surgeon to figure out that during the accident one of the many injuries must've been a break or fracture to my shoulder. And no one saw it..it was my right shoulder and Im right handed. The bone had healed and grew into a hook. With all the repetition the hook was tearing at the insides of my shoulder. I had to have a chunk of my collar bone removed and stuff carved away to make room for all the extra fluid due to inflammation, as well as other stuff. Like I said before I wont get into everything..Ill be here for hours! Its been years and my body will never ever be right. For 6 1/2 years I took painkillers on a daily basis just to get through the day and make it through work. Yes I could have found a much easier job, but min wage just wouldn't cut it. I worked for the same company up until the end of this August. At the same time decided I will deal with the pain. Without that job maybe I could survive without the painkillers. Everyday is a battle but I did not want something else ruining my life. I am now raising 3 children, and I wish I could say that the settlement helped us out immensely. It did not. With what I was left with I paid off bills,loans, bought a trailer, and the children some things they had wanted. I would have rather had my health and that time back. I was told to be thankful he had car insurance and that I received anything. Being that he is a lawyer and part of our local politics, I got screwed. Sorry this was so long, but a very simplified version. Plain and simple if it were me, Id still be in jail. Karma or hell, one will get him.

I met with Mr. Szot to reach a reasonable timetable on the demolition of my building. The City was correct; I just needed more time. In Mr. Szots office we made an oral agreement as to the timetable. When in front of Judge Drag, he told (in open court) this amazing list of direct orders that I was to follow. I stood there in total disbelief because it was totally the opposite of what we had agreed on. HE IS NOTHING BUT A LIAR! Ron lacks honesty and integrity and he does not have to say one word for people to "read" or feel this personality characteristic.

An old friend of mine once told me "Billy, YOU CAN'T POLISH SHIT". now I know what Leo Ratkowski meant.

The city attorney otherwise known as Ron Szot is in fact receiving $70,000 per year plus benefits. A few years ago he was involved in an auto accident where he ran into the rear of another vehicle while drunk. He left the scene of the accident. Now according to NYS law this constitutes a felony and a loss of his license to practice law. Since being a former politician for the county he was not charged with a felony and spent no time in jail. He now walks the halls of city hall wondering hat to do and harassing the workers. What does the mayor say? Nothing. He allows him to continue because of his party affiliation. This folks is what your tax dollars are buying.
