Have you or a loved one been involved in an incident while at Rikers? You can file a complaint in numerous ways. One can always call 311 to lodge a complaint. You can also file a grievance while incarcerated at Rikers although the efficacy of filing a grievance is questionable. Filing a complaint via a notice of claim may make you a few bucks, but that doesn’t put anyone on notice of something that is happening at this moment and thus do not expect it to get you immediate change. Often times doing all three will get an internal investigation opened up. However, if you are incarcerated, we always recommend the best option being to lodge a complaint with your criminal defense attorney. They can motion to the judge for imminent action, for instance, asking the judge to assign you to protective custody, or asking the judge to force the DOC to administer medical attention, etc.. Nevertheless, if you want to file a notice of claim, do so by contacting us here.
