Letters to the Editor...
Accidentally Pushed NJ Teacher Denied Disability Pension

NJ Teacher accidently pushed by running
students...(felt through heavy winter
coat)...goes up into the air because of
presence of ice...falls to ground in
a "pratfall"...hits :head,shoulders,back,leg
s,back of knees...heels of feet... then
Principal yells to gaurd"...get her out of
here!"....(principal does not send for
medical officer)pulled,by wrists to feet by
PRINCIPAL & Gaurd...REDROPPED to
ground,because she screamed in pain for
them to "please don't do that!"Again hits
head shoulders & pelvic area...suffered
contusions,hemotoma, over ten hours of
surgery to repair rotater cuff tear
because "arm was literally pulled apart".
Findings of ALJ :did not accept accidental
push...and "aid" given by "co-workers"
considered not mitigating nor worthy of
merit !...TEACHER DENIED ACCIDENTAL
DISABILITY...now wears brace,walks with
cane,cannot even substitute
teach...Appelate Division upholds ALJ
findings....is being appealed by TEACHER
to the Supreme Court of NJ...I feel it
should be followed and investigated.
Thank you,
MDeVour
