Please let me know if I have information that can help you make a positive impact on the lives of InjuredWorkers in America and elsewhere.  

.

I bring a perspective to the table that few are willing to consider.

I believe my own case is not unlike that of Romano Trust vs. Sedgwick, except that I am still alive to fight the good fight. (In addition to TBI, shoulder surgery was recommended for me, but having read about Romano case, I declined, pending alternatives to surgery.  The defense counsel suggests I’m unable to grasp the complexities of Labor Code, but the following looks pretty simple and easy to understand:
.
“Similarly, in United States Cas. Co. v. Industrial Acc. Com. (Moynahan) (1954) 122 Cal.App.2d
427, 435 [19 Cal.Comp.Cases 8], the Court said:
“Section 4600 of the Labor Code places the responsibility for medical expenses upon the employer when he has knowledge of the injury. … [ffl|] The duty imposed upon an employer who has notice of an injury to an employee is not … the passive one of reimbursement but the active one of offering aid in advance and of making whatever investigation is necessary to determine the extent of his obligation and the needs of the employee [emphasis added].”5 “
.
Then CNA objected to the shoulder as an approved ‘body part’, and an Orthopedic QME has been in the works for nearly 365 days.  They terminated benefits nearly immediately when they received diagnosis of closed head trauma/traumatic brain injury.  They got away with it, too.  Tsk tsk tsk.  Maybe not in a Federal Court, one day.

My ‘case’ is “not usual” according to many “Super Lawyers.”  How unfortunate for America’s working class that the majority of attorneys fail it’s #InjuredWorkers.
.
Injured Workers have some ideas for the legal peeps, too; we can help you ‘find the money’ that you have been unable to successfully negotiate for yourself.
.
That up-to-15% tin cup, divided up with incompetent predecessors, makes helping injured workers economically ridiculous, so I am told.  It  has to change, so you can successfully represent the previously poorly represented, without financial hardship to your firm, or giving away money to attorneys who failed to perform and protect the injured workers that trusted them and retained them.
.
Or, injured workers, in pro per, will establish vendor networks and break the monopoly the ABA seems to have on WorkComp legal issues.  Can’t we all just work together, and get along? Compatible goals would include immediate and appropriate medical care, and expedited return to work processes, and cut out all the dubious file churning.  These are lives at stake, not just “cases” and “files.”  BE HUMAN!

I suspect that WyndhamWorldwide may be looking for new #WorkComp insurance carrier and defense firms in the foreseeable future.  

.
The CNA handling of my case has been very poor for nearly 3 years.  The legal counsel has been extremely sloppy, imho.  The timeshare industry on the whole is probably nearly as profitable as the insurance industries, so that could be a business opportunity in progress.  
wc doc can you see the problem
 
I would like to see every InjuredWorker provided with a copy of THE ART OF WAR by SunTzu to study during any work related recovery and rehabilitation.  It could minimize casualties.

It’s been brought to my attention that it is somewhat of an industry standard to terminate benefits upon diagnosis of a “brain injury” or any significant or potentially catastrophic injury.

.

My diagnosis was February 2012, repeatedly reiterated by more than 30 medical evaluations that did not result in treatments.
.
For some reason, people in WorkComp often confuse an evaluation and recommendation for treatment with actual treatment, even though the costs are often higher for reports. My benefits were terminated in April 2012, what a coincidence. Court orders, intervention by Adult Protective Services, local politicians, and local Crisis Center have free up funds, periodically.  It is what could be considered to be a ‘low grade financial terrorism’ and abuse.
.
Nearly $30,000 in personal funds has been spent to stay alive and get treatment. Defense apparently has no intentions to reimburse, not even reimbursement of miles to “primary treating doctors” [a PTP is State designated Orthopedic Surgeon to be seen every 45 days to request medical care with brain specialists that is consistently denied by doctor and lawyers without expertise in TBI.] Fortunately, the Salvation Army intervened so that I would have have heat and lights last year. Oh my.  
.
Social Security Disability has been denied twice, as the reviewers do not deem full cognitive abilities are required to sell ‘timeshare’….even if speech is dysfluent, short-term memory severely impaired, compounded by grave disorganization and attention deficits, easily lost to and from home and moreso to and from new places, to name a few cognitive challenges. 
.
SSDI because it’s inconvenient for an insurance carrier to act and provide coverage in accordance with policy terms? Does the State Controller know? How about the Taxpayers? Governor? Audit time? 
.
Cost shifting from a paid WorkComp Insurance Policy to the State seems…. rather odd, doesn’t it?  California seems to reward non-payment of benefits to injured workers by insurance carriers in thousands of dollars per incident.  Is there sufficient money in State coffers to put injured workers on social services lines? 
 .
It has taken Court Orders and Judge time to get basic pain relief such as chiropractic and acupuncture, with total disregard to MTUS and ACOEM and common sense guidelines for immediate interdisciplinary treatment. Is that really the best use of Court time???  It took 15 months for physical therapy authorization of 6 sessions.  One “independent”  industry doctor stated that since the injured worker (me) didn’t get brain injury care in the first two years, and being “over 35″….. no treatment would be recommended?  He teaches neurology at UCLA. God help the next generations!

.

Is that an EEOC direct hit?  1. Gender 2. Age. 3. Disability.   :/

 .
At one point, the carrier called from Chicago to ask, among other things, in light of non-treatment for nearly 3 years, “…when ARE you going to die?”   More recently, defense counsel suggested a ‘court appointed conservator’ since there is such non-acceptance to torture delivered via WorkComp systems and procedures.  #DomesticTortureReports-2015 seem necessary and a logical next step.
.
Since actual numbers of TBI victims reach well into the many millions, it is easier to see how such a risk management strategy of fast-and-potentially-lethal denials could develop as a cost-savings remedy for carriers.
.

What is your experience or policy regarding treatment for brain injuries? Is it more than CNA’s 3-year plan of a few chiropractic, a couple of acupuncture, and a couple of clinical psychology visits, and when pressed, 16 days in the third year to include speech therapy, occupational therapy, and non-specific physical therapy?

.

Does return to work ever factor in for closed head trauma, in your experience, or is that age and gender sensitive also?

“I think you have met many people in the Workers Compensation community in the last couple of years and perhaps have met some people who you feel could give you advice that you can trust.” –  Anonymous Defense Attorney

See suggestion below made by defense counsel to injured worker with untreated TBI and a completely churned file, for the profits of the few.

Even if CNA is not your #WorkComp Carrier, you may find their practices “of interest.”

Per attorney’s suggestion, your advice is immediately requested.  Time is of the essence.

Write to Linda directly at wynLINDA@gmail.com

or call at 760 368 7236

if you can help or are in the same canoe

 

DEFENSE FIRM SUGGESTS THE FOLLOWING, SINCE, APPARENTLY, NEARLY 3 YEARS OF FAILURES TO PROVIDE MEDICALLY NECESSARY TREATMENTS DID NOT RESULT IN A CONVENIENT DEATH TO INJURED WORKER, WITH PLAUSIBLE DENIABILITY, SO PERHAPS A COURT-APPOINTED ‘CONSERVATOR CAN BE PREVAILED UPON TO COMPLETE THE JOB?  

IS THAT WHAT HE IS SUGGESTING?  DRAW YOUR OWN CONCLUSIONS.  REMEMBER REMEMBER, EVERYTHING HITLER DID IN GERMANY WAS ‘LEGAL’…TILL NUREMBURG!  

WILL THE DOJ, DOL, EEOC ETC COME TO THE AID OF INJURED AMERICAN WORKERS?  WE CAN HOPE, HUH?

 

“By the way, if you were interested in hearing my idea of the other day, it would have been easier to tell me you were interested and want to hear more rather than send emails to other parties.”

“My suggestion is based on my perception of your inability to navigate the workers compensation system and make decisions for yourself in this arean.”

“As I told you the other day, I don’t think you have the capacity or ability to move your case through the workers compensation system to your maximum benefit. I don’t know why this is.”

“I think if the doctors who are treating you are in agreement that you are unable to make appropriate decisions for your own benefit in the workers compensation system;”

“If the judge feels that according to the doctors opinions, you are unable to make appropriate decisions for your own benefit in the workers compensation system,”

“then it is possible the judge would order a trustee or guardian who would make all appropriate decisions for you.”

“The person would be an individual selected by the judge unless there is somebody you would want to have this position”

“If that person were an attorney, then my client would have to pay that person for their time and effort. Such fees and costs would be awarded by the judge.”

 

“There are both benefits to you in this potential option and there are also detriments.”

“I am not your attorney so I cant and wont give you legal advice as that would be a conflict for me”

“I think you have met many people in the Workers Compensation community in the last couple of years and perhaps have met some people who you feel could give you advice that you can trust.”

TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE.  THIS IS NOT AN UNUSUAL SITUATION.

America needs #WorkComp #TortureReports Now!

the game is rigged

IT IS THE STANDARD PATTERN OF PRACTICE of #WorkCompWar and Terrorism on Injured American Workers.  Canada seems to have similar problems, as does the UK.  We all know that the Yakuza runs things in Japan, to keep the show going for the unsuspecting global public with ‘Fukushima Clean Up Crews.  America? America?

BUT FIRST, LET’S SEE WHAT TREATMENTS HAVE BEEN AUTHORIZED compared to what NIH, MTUS, ACOEM and professionals with brain injury expertise recommend?

wc mtus acoem cna

Traumatic Brain Injury Information Page: National Institute of …

http://www.ninds.nih.g

National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke

Jul 22, 2014 – TBI can result when the head suddenly and violently hits an object, or when an object pierces the skull and enters brain tissue. Symptoms of a….

#CNA, a global insurance carrier with a CEO earning more than $10.7 million a year off such things as InjuredWorker CashCows (follow https://twitter.com/CNA_Insurance) did authorize the following ‘Brain Injury Treatment Kit,’ partially delivered by USPS,  requested by two different Orthopedic Surgeons.
CNA Brain Injury Treatment Kit
 .
Note: Physiatrists, Neurologists, Neuropsychologists, Speech Therapists, Neuro-Optometrists, Occupational Therapists, etc. are apparently not part of the CNA arsenal for insured to aid recovery and return to work.  Oh well, they tried with this kit, huh?
 .
Are there any professional opinions on how to use an ultrasound for brain injury, and any caveats on lobes?  OK to use with all lobes?
.
In 2012, it did not come with any instructions for use on neck/back or brain.  The drug recommendations included ‘stomach acid’ medication, and some special very expensive cremes. Again, any brain injury experts are invited to weigh in on the CNA Guidelines for Treatment of Brain Injuries.
.
OTC counter analgesics also recommended.  The WC evaluating doctors suggested that since no medical care had been authorized in the first two years, and that the injured worker was female, over 35, that none should be authorized now.  Same doctor was unfamiliar with the concepts that occipital lobe is involved in vision, not just the eyes.
 .

Further to CNA Treatment Plans for Brain Injury:

Year One – Rest and Wait and Wait and Wait; 17 chiropractic, 14 clinical psych, about 30 gravy train evals, ignore all recommendations for treatment.
Year Two – Rest and Wait and Wait and Wait; 6 chiropractic, 6 acupuncture (Court Order required to scheduled)
Year Three – 24 days of a recommended 3-6 month indisciplinary TBI treatment program to include speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy and Interdisciplinary Process interaction for Return to Work Planning (pay for RTW component, refuse to participate, then terminate treatment as ‘good ’nuff’)
 .
Another doctor simply diagnosed probability of non-industrial epilepsy in lieu of witnessed slip and fall. Huh?  Those were very expensive medical reports reviewed to continue denials of medical in year 2, and required 2 days in Court for a Court Order to have Defense firm add approximately 300 pages of omitted medical records for supplemental reports.  No sanctions, just a reminder to not omit records again with intent to deny medical.  That was summer; the serial omitter struck again in December.
 .
The CA DIR Fraud Warning is issued annually in October, there is no enforcement so defense firms do whatever is necessary to deny treatment and keep the gravy train moving?
.
Those 2013 reports are to be used in determining Permanent Disability, and it makes no difference that a few industry leased/owned doctors changed the date of injury to 2013 from 2012, in order to use medical reports of 2012 to substantiate ‘evidence of pre-existing conditions.’  When the reports were objected to and corrections requested, they simply changed the date of injury back to 1/9/12, but did not change the conclusions.
 .
CNA refused to pay TTD to injured worker in 2012/2013, which cost burden was shifted to the State of California.  In 2014, the issue came up again, and CNA was a offered, apparently, a negotiated bonus of approximately $16k for refusing to comply with US Labor Codes.  On appeal, a Judge ruled that it was not the InjuredWorkers money (so it must have been State Coffer money given to the Chicago firm for violations).
 social media mind mapsNAIDW TBI AWARENESS
Social Security Disability acknowledges the brain injuries and after the mandatory 2 denials, pending hearing, they have advised that a fully functioning brain is not necessary to sell WyndhamWorldwide TimeShare.

Life with TBI is so

WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW.  SHARE YOUR STORY HERE TOO. (OR not!)

This blog, ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAINS, is an example of what can happen when a corporation has a policy of …

.

Don’t call 9-11, don’t drive a head-injured worker to a hospital or emergency room, have a good laugh at the fall in a sales meeting, encourage completing work shift then driving 20 miles down an icy-mountain road then 40 more miles of desert 2-lane road to get to “go to any doctor that takes work comp insurance” and provides an incomplete DWC-1 form (no insurance carrier info; then emails later with a list of providers that no longer accept work comp insurance and demands to cease seeing the doctor seen on date of injury; defense firm later insists said action is “proper service” of an alleged ‘MPN’), no-get-well-wishes, no follow up, erroneous info, reliance on EAP to facilitate first doctors (shifting burden to health insurance vs work comp carrier) (then adjuster has extensive phone conversation with EAP designated doctor regarding severity of injuries and shortly thereafter terminates benefits, stiffing said doctor for 4 appointment payments also),  no intervention to help an injured worker for nearly 3 years, no participation in FEHA interactive process, no apparent return to work program–with or without ADA accommodations, “the silent treatment” if pro-active nearly destitute injured worker is the only attendee at a corporate public JOB FAIR in an attempt to facilitate “RTW,”

Further policies appear to include introduction of injured worker to the State Welfare Systems and the generosity of charitable organizations such as THE SALVATION ARMY because of failures to provide medically necessary treatment for ‘going on 3 years’ and refusing to pay disability benefits, causing loss of professional credentials and complicating work injuries because of failures to provide immediate, reasonable and necessary medical care and shifting all burdens of the WorkComp policy benefits to others….

Defense firm attempted to coerce first year premature Settlement, without repeatedly requested brain injury evaluations and treatments,  for $100k less attorney fees, that required full release of all liability, it required resignation from job, forfeiture of any/all State disability/Medicare benefits for “3 years” with callous disregard for life itself.  File appears to have been churned churned churned repeatedly.  Injured worker is out of pocket nearly $30,000, for self-procuring physician requested treatments and evaluations that the insurance carrier or and defense firm denied repeatedly until the new law, when the buck could be further passed on ‘non-recommendations’ for treatment by non-brain injury experts.

District Attorney indicated the complaints “have merit”….but that was quite a while ago.  EEOC asked why the brain-injured worker waited so long to complain.  One lawyer, after repeated attempts to find competent legal representation, after file review, concluded with the question, “So why did you wait more than 2 years for medical care for a brain injury?”  D’oh!

IF THAT’S WORK COMP, WE, THE INJURED WORKERS SAY…. NO THANKS TO THOSE WHO PLACE “PROFITS BEFORE LIVES”

.

Earlier in 2014, the State Adult Protective Services intervened in response to complaints of financial terrorism compounding the failures to provide medical treatment for, at that time, over two years.

Ask About Brain Injuries and “Perseveration” of pen, words, thoughts and neuro-misfirings; for those in #WorkComp who do not know, the “brain” is a body part located in the head region.  A witnessed slip and fall “backwards” on ice only has the “skull” to break the fall; see illustration:

  1. Remember about PIMM patsies. Forget about BS of “establishing trust”. The first thing PIMM destroys is trust and you need to be aware that he tries to entice your weaker colleagues to spy on you. In such environment a weaker personalities often adopts the role of patsy as a self-protection mechanism and might even comply and even try to provoke you to “frank talk” that will be reported to PIMM. The environment PIMM creates is characterized by old Latin quote “Homo homini lupus est” ( Man is a wolf to his fellow-man.) They build up a power base and because they are paranoid, they turn all subordinates into paranoia wrecks: everyone becomes afraid of everyone else and the work culture begins to reflect the personality of the leader.

    What Is the ABI Program?

    Coastline’s ABI Program is a demanding one-year educational program designed to provide structured cognitive retraining for adults who have sustained a brain injury due to traumatic (such as a motor vehicle accident or fall) or non-traumatic (such as a non-age-related stroke, brain tumor or infection) injuries.

    Each year, according to the Brain Injury Association, more than 700,000 Americans sustain brain damage from traumatic head injuries alone. Most are between the ages of 15 and 30 – young, active, involved individuals, suddenly and unexpectedly disabled.

    In many cases, impaired attention and concentration, memory disturbances, language disabilities, and/or loss of reasoning skills prevent these individuals from resuming even minimal pre-accident activities. Awareness of limitations and shattered career and personal goals lead to frustration and depression, further contributing to the individual’s unemployment, isolation and alienation from friends, family and community.

    Coastline’s ABI Program has developed a unique curriculum to address these special needs. The ABI Program emphasizes cognitive retraining, socialization, and career development to promote individual responsibility and independence. Students in the program learn strategies to compensate for deficits in:

    • Verbal skills
    • Memory
    • Figural skills
    • Critical thinking
    • Attention
    • Organization

    With a strong focus on emotional adjustment to brain injury and appropriate psycho-social skills, the program teaches students to apply these skills to practical, real-life home and work environments.

    Coastline’s ABI Program also offers the following program support services:

    • Neuroeducational Assessment
    • Counseling for students and their families
    • “Future Planning Development” (whether for employment, training, or volunteering).

    Classes meet Monday through Thursday, four hours per day. The school year includes two 16-week semesters and a five week summer session.
    Classes are held at Coastline’s Newport Beach Center, 1515 Monrovia, Newport Beach, CA 92663.

    Investigations into the practice of using injured worker or State Taxpayer funds to reward insurance companies for breach of fiduciary responsibilities and breach of Labor Codes surely deserves further investigations, even though it appears to be another ‘pattern of practice’ known by all, harming only the injured workers it impacts.
    To the Insurance Company Dude who asked, among other things, “…when ARE you going to die?” in a discussion of refusals to provide medically necessary treatment for nearly 3 years, all I can say is, “Not yet, Dude, not just yet.”

“Churn, Baby Churn” Chant of WorkComp Defense Firms in America.

“There is NO EXCUSE for the #WorkComp Atrocities in America”

but we might be on to an explanation…..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

flag distress signal

WorkComp Law….and Atrocities…

AS THE FILE CHURNS, Wyndham Sleeps and CNA asks IW:

“…when ARE you going to die?”

Primary Treating Physician for Ayres vs. Wyndham et al is an Orthopedic Surgeon designated as PTP for BRAIN INJURY CASE, because the alleged MPN Network of CNA is apparently losing swathes of doctors for non-payment and ridiculous handling of claims, they have no brain injury experts and damages caused by CNA by refusals to provide medically necessary treatments.

CNA now relies heavily on Corvel Corporation orthopedic surgeons and clinical psychologists to deny brain injury care based on false and incomplete medical evidence, and lack of expertise  in the brain department.  People complain about that Maximus IMR Gang?  …..Corvel says, ‘let them all eat cake!’ as their nurses and sonders churn out denials like they were going out of business.  The Corvel ‘doctors’ seem to have fangs in the Social Security denial system too?

Most of the CNA leased/owned independent doctors don’t even know that the brain is a body part located in the head, and one of their neurologists says ‘take an over the counter analgesic’ and their other neurologist says, ‘Look, you didn’t get any medical care the first two years, you’re already over 35, nothing will help you now.  Go for a walk, get skinny, use the neuro-optometric theraputic lenses they wouldn’t pay for, but you did, and stop whining about vision and auditory impairments.’

Some real doctors just walk away from the #WorkComp Scams, some stay in it, slugging it out on behalf of injured workers, and others just ride the Dinner Car of the #WorkCompGravy Trains.

Nearly every single request for expert treatment for brain injury by the PTPs have been denied, first by non-doctors, Kim Mall, Attorney for Grancell, then by Daniel Elliott, Adjuster for CNA aka American Casualty.  Remember remember, Wyndham Worldwide had (and probably still has) no standard practice for injured workers other than handing them an incomplete DWC-1 form with a shrug and “See any doctor that accepts work comp insurance” with the ‘time-share-salute’.

LIFE HAPPENS…. They train the trainers! The DOD seeks their expertise.  Their ‘Graduates” sing their praises!  Compensatory Strategies help many Brain Injury Survivors return to life; sadly, not all are so fortunate.  Not everybody survives…..

 

The Evaluation [QME]  by Dr. Jeffrey Holmes, Orthopedic Surgeon, has been aborted again, and to be rescheduled in December, after spending nearly 70 minutes at the appointed time, confirming medical records and sorting through confusion.  It was a pleasure to meet Dr. Holmes and his kind and gracious staff.  Harvard men can have manners, yes?

As injured worker was quite clear that the good doctor was being invited by Defense to participate in an on-going fraudulent denial of medical treatment scam, and that he deserved to have all the facts so that he could make a legitimate evaluation of the right shoulder injury and other orthopedic challenges.

2012 medical records and 2012 attempt to coerce premature settlement by Defense clearly referenced right shoulder injury, and current hard-fought for Acupuncture has been for the ‘right shoulder only’ and they tried to tell the acupuncturist treatments were not to be used on the brain.  D’oh!

(Acupuncture is a whole-body system of treatment, most helpful to some brain injured patients.) The Defense postion letter started out with lies, that just got more egregious, and current defense counsel stated he saw no reason to change anything in Kim’s letter.  Birds of Feather poop together?

Current PTP was successful in getting 6 physical therapy sessions authorized in Spring 2013, for a Winter 2012 injury. Then an MRI in Summer 2013 of the shoulder was authorized, determining a need for surgery and a severe shoulder rotator cuff tear.  It took a Court Order to get appointments scheduled for Physical Therapy and Acupuncture in 2013. Is that right use of Judge’s time?

Defense attorney Kim Mall (Grancell-Corona) then indicated that the adjuster was wrong, there would be no further evaluation because it was not an accepted body part.  She did not want to hear that the adjuster was trying to do the right thing.  She squashed it, and no doubt billed on.

 

Work Comp  TBI Wyndham and YOU

Several days in front of a WorkComp Riverside Judge, to deal with issues of omissions of medical records—more than 300 pages left out for 3 doctor reports, so those doctors relied on instruction from the defense, based on their egregiously flawed reports, QME/AME/and 2nd Consult.

 

Conveniently, those industry leased/owned doctors moved the reported date of injury on some reports a year forward, to 2013, using medical evidence of 2012 to ‘support’ fraudulent claims of ‘pre-existing’ symptoms such as dysfluent speech, impaired cognitive abilities, inability to recognize people, auditory and visual processing….. One made a correction to the date when confronted, but not to the false opinings, or his meds were off too.

wpid-img_20141113_185828.jpg

No worries, WorkComp Courts REFUSE TO HEAR COMPLAINTS ABOUT ATTORNEY/PROVIDER FRAUD, AND SO DOES THE COMMISSION IN CALIFORNIA.  DISTRICT ATTORNEY IS TOO BUSY? CAAA suggests injured worker keeps on looking for a competent legal firm to represent.

DEFENSE FIRM REFUSES TO MEDIATTE, SAYS THE CASE IS “not ripe”… (i.e. Injured worker is still breathing???)

DEFENSE FIRM REFUSES TO PROPERLY PROCESS MEDICAL EXPENSES REIMBURSEMENT REQUESTS FOR NEARLY $30,000, AND INSURANCE CARRIER IS AWARDED $16,000 BONUS BY STATE OF CALIFORNIA – EDD — APPARENTLY OUT OF GENERAL TAXPAYER FUNDS…FOR REFUSAL BY CARRIER TO PAY TEMPORARY TOTAL DISABILITY BENEFITS IN YEAR 1 AND 2 OF INJURY…. Perhaps the WorkComp AUDIT UNIT will do their job and suprise all stakeholders with fines and penalties.

THE INJURED WORKER HAS NOT YET RETURNED TO WORK…. WYNDHAM CONTINUES TO REFUSE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE INTERACTIVE PROCESSES OF #FEHA, AND THE DEFENSE FIRM CONTINUES TO OBFUSCATE TRUTH…SENDING QME DOCTORS BUNDLES OF DISORGANIZED FILES, THAT SEVERAL HAVE BILLED 7-8 HOURS TO “organize” prior to review, and generally, those doctors just have their “staff” write a report following guidelines of defense counsel, fraudulent misrepresentations and all.

These doctors are not apparently accustomed to an injured worker fighting for survival without a lawyer—two threatend to sue for ‘harassment’ when omitted records were properly served with requests for supplement reports reflecting further medical evidence.  Several Court hours were wasted (but billed by Defense firm?.)…. to sort out the missing records.

The file was pulled from Kim Mall, and given to Stewart Reubens, in Grancell-Novato office.  Stewart doesn’t like to read.  His office must be full of rubber stamps?

wc CLAIM DENIED

Date of injury was 1/9/12, despite repeated requests for a brain injury experts—a Physicist, a Neurologist with Brain Injury Expertise, A Neuro-Psychologist, to manage an INTERDISCIPLINARY TEAM OF EXPERTS — Speech Therapy with Cognitive Remediation, Occupational Therapy, Neuro-Vision Therapy, Physical Therapy — TO TREAT A TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY CAUSED BY A WITNESSED SLIP AND FALL BACKWARDS AT THE WORLDMARK BY WYNDHM BIG BEAR RESORT ON 1/9/12…..

What can break the impact of a fall backwards besides the SKULL?   See picture for help with that question.  Hint: THE SKULL.  2ND HINT: Where is the brain located?

Evaluations Evaluations Evaluations…. and #WorkComp Defense now wants MORE EVALUATIONS?!!! For how many more years??

The recent Ortho Eval was aborted again, due to file obfuscation by Defense Firm, to be rescheduled.

While Grancell refuses to honor ADA request for electronic communications, it seems that Stewart sent a letter recently requesting yet another neuro-psychologist evaluation (after DIR told him NO once more) and he is apparently clue-less that such testing cannot be done more often than every 7-9 months, or ‘practice effect’ renders the results bastardized.  Or, maybe he does know that, as he knows such a battery of tests was done again in October 2014.   All results point to a traumatic brain injury, with requests for treatment.

Even the Grancell leased Forensic Psychiatrist wrote, ‘If there was evidence of a concussion from a slip and fall, injured worker would certainly be entitled to medical treatment….but there was not fall, no concussion, and it was probably just an epilepsy attack.”  D’oh! Doc off his meds that day?

Forensic Psychiatrist wrote 3 supplemental reports at the request of Grancell’s Kim Mall, each one more outrageous and egregiously fraudulent than the prior, until they decided to put the reports on the ‘do not regurgitate in summary’ instructions, and also asked to have the name and report dates removed from the Medical Index.  Invoking the 5th amendment might have been more efficient?  (He also suggested that if IW has civil rights complaints, she take it to The Hague.  He provided the direct line for the local DA to facilitate further complaints….THAT’S SCARY THAT HE HAD THAT NUMBER SO HANDY, HUH?  d’OH!  He refused to believe complaints had already been filed.)

'CHURN THAT BILL BABY

“I hear we are already 200k over our estimate—that’s Team DLA Piper!” wrote then-DLA Piper partner Erich P. Eisenegger in one email.

After another lawyer responded, noting that an attorney colleague, whose first name is Vince, had been added to the group working on the bankruptcy matter, then-DLA Piper attorney Christopher Thomson added his thoughts: “Now Vince has random people working full time on random research projects in standard ‘churn that bill, baby!’ mode,” wrote Thomson. “That bill shall know no limits.”

“Now Vince has random people working full time on random research projects in standard ‘churn that bill, baby!’ mode,” wrote Thomson. “That bill shall know no limits.”

Insurance Industry Trolls or WorkComp Opiate War Casualties?

Tinkerbell and opinions and insults

Oh goodness! That alleged ‪#‎WorkComp‬ “long time activists” gang says they are banning me and removing me from their email distributions lists forever, but gosh golly, they keep sending me emails saying they’re really gonnna do it now, and I better look out! D’oh.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DO NOT WALK QUIETLY IN THIS OPEN AIR AUSCHWITZ….. AND ASK ABOUT THE WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAINS…..and where those box cars stop at the end of the line. https://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/

Sadly, they either have Langley 401(k) accounts, have just blown a promotion for a failed attack on an injured worker, or are simply casualties of the #WorkComp Opiate Wars on Injured Workers. They couldn’t be working for CNA, could they? Naaaaaah….the timing and stupidity makes it plausible, but deniable.

Their “leaders” do seem to have long time insurance industry connections. Hmmmm. The attacks are text book out of The Rules of Disinformation and The 8 Traits of Disinformationists.

bill casey quote

SHUN THEM.

In any event, their mean spirited and non-sensical blastings are….insignificant in the greater scheme of things.

Remember Remember the 6th of December….

See you There!

I also submitted a few nominations; it was brain-racking to think of those who help vs. those who harm…

https://ww3.workcompcentral.com/events/awards

We MUST find those who are making a positive difference in the lives of maimed and injured workers, and we MUST strengthen their hands.  

Karma will deal with the others, with a little help from our Friends.

What are THREE QUESTIONS you would ask of injured workers to help you help save their lives?

Are there any resources YOU would encourage to be included in a directory for the WorkComp Communities…InjuredWorkers, Doctors, Lawyers, Chiefs etc.  https://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/about/

TriageNow, a WorkComp phone nurse group was recently stumbled upon and we suggested they contact Wyndham since Wyndham’s staff are clueless on how to handle a worker injury.  They are following on Twitter now. https://twitter.com/LindaAyres311
.
LinkedIn is proving to be a great place for outreach, and I keep making it to the top of the Wyndham stats. https://www.linkedin.com/in/lindaayres311  Maybe for YOUR level of investigative reporting, you can work in an interview with some Wyndham key executives?
.
Their top peeps are in New Jersey http://www.wyndhamworldwide.com/about-wyndham-worldwide/our-leadership  You or one of your colleagues could approach them with an angle that perhaps you can help solve their future work comp dilemmas and the bad will that will no doubt build.

Could I pretty please ask your opinion on some questions to ask of other injured workers?  What is it that YOU believe is needed to reach professionals in the work comp community, who are not party to the atrocities that are happening everyday, everywhere? Do you have a list of standard questions?
If you can’t, no worries, We’ll take another route, and thank you again for your consideration.
social networking
We will ask some of my friends and injured worker pals for their stories, and we will render them anonymous, so that they can be shared and explored without emotions. (see email thread below)
.

We (me and a few Injured Friends and Warriors) hope to have a new website up and running before the WorkComp Laude Awards Gala, and we would like to have a questionnaire Survey available to facilitate further communications.

Comp Laude Awards  2014
One particular e-group of ‘radical’ and “outspoken” and “knowledgeable” injured workers deals with the unconstitutionality of WorkComp in California, and a variety of other whinings about the government collusion with the insurance company bad guys.  Kaiser, State, Sedgwick, CNA…a bunch of big names involved.  All have had poor experiences with InjuredWorker legal representation, much like my challenge with incompetent counsels.
 .
As we know, that saves no lives, and merely adds to profit margins for the few.  Many have been fighting in the system for 10-20 years.  Yikes, that’s unfathomable to me.  The moment I saw the real deal and got more of marbles back, the faster I wanted out.  Looks like that won’t be happening, so I will kick and scream and expose to expunge, till death do us part.
 .
When I told that particular e-group about the Comp Laude nomination as an Injured Worker, omg, the dirt started flinging, calling me an ‘industry hack’ and worse… Sadly, many have been in the “system” for 10-20+ years, and some seem to be casualties of the opiate drug wars conducted by work comp as well.
.go save yourself from the zombies
I had tried to have coffee with one (having had a lengthy phone conversation in the summer listening to the work comp sad tale, unable to get in a word edgewise).  I was going to see about extending an invitation to the 12/6/14 Gala, and omg, all hell broke lose….I won’t be in touch with them anymore, jeeeze! It was like dealing with defense counsels or I & A agents. Learned Helplessness, Institutionalization and being a “Victim” is apparently a real consequence of ‘doing time’ in WorkComp in America.
.
There are many injured workers groups on social media, quietly fighting for their lives.  Some not even telling their friends and neighbors of the horrors of fighting for basic medical care and basic temporary disability benefits or “incapacitation” benefits.  There is no reason to put up with suspected agents of disinformation; we injured workers have our hands full dealing with defense counsels, insurance companies, their owned doctors etc. and work comp judiciaries etc.

[They even accused me of not having a brain injury at all…. and made me wonder who THEY worked for…..I didn’t even read half of their emails…D’oh…. Talk about mean-spiritedness!   If I didn’t have a brain injury, there is no way I would be in this mess, imho.]
 .bill casey quote
DePaolo’s blogs are excellent, but the ‘fraud factors’ seem real hard to grasp, from an insider perspective.  It’s crystal clear as a “victim of WorkComp”…. I haven’t counted how many doctors have applauded my big mouth and said, “Somebody’s got to do it” as they eliminate injured workers from their portfolios.
 .
I changed my Orthopedic regular 45 day visit from December 5 so that I can be rested for the December 6th experience.  The doctor’s office was THRILLED to hear that I was nominated as a finalist for the CompLaude Awards.  She said, “Tell how how bad things are.  They need to hear someone.  Your case should have been gone a long time ago!”…. and she knows how hard they have fought to try to get me to a brain injury specialist.  They couldn’t even get me to a neurologist.  D’oh.
.
I thanked her and giggled and said, “I’m a finalist, but politically speaking, I don’t think they can dare to let me win.”….. But it is still an honor and opportunity, which I take seriously.
 .
Here’s the response I sent to that private injured worker e-group, in response to their hope that Ralph Nader will save them.  D’oh.   [They called it self-serving, so, it’s sort of a no-win situation dealing with hammered, drugged and chemically poisoned Prisoners of WorkComp….whew ]  Anyhow,
 .
If any of it strikes a chord and you want to share your thoughts informally to give it more structure, and more reach to your peeps, please send me an email or leave me a voice mail.  (and no, I won’t plaster your email all over the internet as I was morally required to do with the CNA question, “….Tell me, Linda, when ARE you going to die?”  
 .
I think CNA bought Wyndham some more legal challenges with that one…. seems to violate some EEOC Civil Rights laws that the Courts seem to be holding employers liable for bad deeds of their vendors.  I”m investigating further.)  ;D

“We ARE the media now” …..working like Antz, telling our friends and neighbors about #WorkComp atrocities.

(If you forward my comments to your friends, please be respectful of others in the thread and copy and paste to a new email for their privacy)

Did any of you have a chance to see my piece in this blog and listen to the 3 minute audio of the dude from CNA insurance asking, among other things, “So, tell me Linda, when ARE you going to die?”. Yes, its recorded and all over social media.

See more here: http://lucyoccupy.com/

That conversation might be a civil suit for which my employer, WyndhamWorldwide, may be held culpable as well.

My whole story is in the blog, Ask About Workers Comp Gravy Trains.http://askaboutworkerscompgavytrains.com/ see the blogs and then see the Resource page and the list of posts page.

Each of you are welcomed and encouraged to follow these blogs for updates.

I reached out to one of you recently to meet for coffee and I got a polite “can’t”… It wasn’t a social call.

Are you kidding me??! If y’all can’t bother to explore new opportunities, you’ll die whining.

Somebody else in this group said my posts may be pretty but they are useless. Fine. Block me.

WE are the Media Now. Ain’t nobody gonna help us, so we need to find new strategies.

WorkComp activism can be quite like “anti-nuke” activism……heavily infiltrated and hell bent on keeping people running in square circles, diefying paid mouth-pieces.

Re-read the common wisdom of “the 25 rules of disinformation” and the 8 traits of disinformationists”

Let me know if you get any insights or can share them with your friends and lawyers.

Stay tuned. More coming up, including but not limited to a new website.

If you are interested, send me a 500-700 words general summary of your story….date of injury, extent of injuries, all diagnosis, treatment, complications, pay, ever return to work, on social security, represented now? How many attorneys, prospects for the future. Your age at injury, and age now?
Gender? Overall health today? Better or worse?

Working? What needs to happen for return to work, if an option.

We want at least ten stories to start with. Include employer name and insurer, if you care to. First rounds may be more general and nation and ANONYMOUS.

Write a conclusion to finish this statement:

“The worst thing is ________________________.””What helped me most was:____________________________________””What I want now is:_____________________________________.””The non-psychopaths of the WorkComp industry can best help me, and other injured workers like me, if they will _____________________________.”If I had an open mic and 2 minutes I would say _____________________________________ to (whom/what) ___________________”

Any groups you would recommend? Include their social media links: ________________________________________________

I usually use this hashtag in my posts:
