According to claims disputed by Consolidated Edison, Metesky's accident led to pneumonia that in turn developed into tuberculosis. A claim for workers' compensation was denied because he waited too long to file it. Three appeals of the denial were also rejected, the last in 1936. Metesky developed a hatred for the company's attorneys and for the three co-workers whose testimony in his compensation case he believed was perjured in favor of the company. Between 1940 and 1956 Metesky planted at least 33 bombs, of which 22 exploded. (5 September 1931)
