December 2012: Orthopedic Surgeons designated repeatedly by WorkComp to treat Traumatic Brain Injuries? Work Comp repeatedly refused to designate a Physiatrist, Neuro-Psychologist, or Neurologist as PTP…. and work comp neurologists are not current on brains… and don’t even know that vision is with the brain, not the eyes; defense firm and work comp info and assistance officer struggle with the fact that the brain is a “body part” in the head region. D’oh!
MARCH IS BRAIN INJURY AWARENESS MONTH
Linda Ayres‘s comments on David’s post in Jon Gelman’s LinkedIn group; Read it all here:
You’re not going to like it — your future is specious at best.
Jon, David and Peter…thank you for the work that you and your esteemed colleagues do. (We’ll leave out mention of the knuckleheads, for now!) Your left brain attention is most assuredly needed in this fight for lives.
May I respectfully suggest that you create a national avenue of communication to ‘pick the brains’ of the Injured Workers most violated, harmed and prematurely dead as a consequence of the current system.
What you don’t know, or what it’s politically incorrect to see, IS still killling us, in greater numbers.
ASK YOUR QUESTIONS; WE’LL TELL YOU THE TRUTH BECAUSE IT’S THE RIGHT THING TO DO.
I’ve been working since 1969….never before touched by this vile system of WorkComp until 2012…. Alrighty then:
It has nearly destroyed my life since a witnessed slip and fall of January 9, 2012 that resulted in a traumatic brain injury, while thousands and thousands and thousands of dollars were ‘spent’ on evaluations that resulted in little-to-none medically necessary treatment. The file still churns. I’ve spent more than $30,000, and lost more than that since I haven’t been able to return to work (despite valiant attempts at accommodations, trials, pleas!) trying to stay alive and dodge these WorkCompsters….
It’s time for change. Any of you who believe the propaganda that InjuredWorkers are “on the dole”… TRY LIVING WITHOUT AN INCOME FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS…. BECAUSE THE STATE LET’S THE INSURANCE CARRIERS GET AWAY WITH NOT ONLY FAILING TO PROVIDE MEDICALLY NECESSARY TREATMENTS, BUT ALSO WITH REFUSING TO PAY TTD, THEN GIVES THEM BIG BONUSES UPON NEGOTIATED RESTITUTION….
Maybe David and pals can create a “WorkCompCentral – INJURED WORKERS FORUM”…. In the interim, do check out NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF INJURED AND DISABLED WORKERS …. all over social media… NAIDW.org
I can assure each of you, I’m not the only one with an axe grind and a deeply felt wish for Doctor’s Trials to include complicit vendors, including lawyers.
It was experience in the first 2.5 years post-injury that those who profit by worker injuries are afraid to speak to us….. as it causes severe cognitive dissonance for them.
I, myself, have been subjected to some pretty vile verbal attacks by both attorneys, info and assistance officers, industry leased/owned doctors, and by long-term alleged injured workers, who act more like industry trolls than peers in a Fight for Freedom as Prisoners of WorkComp Wars.
Meanwhile, #InjuredWorkers ARE Uniting…we know ‘where the bodies are’….and we have clues to “who dunnit”…
Let me know if I can be of any assistance in creating more a communication flow between both sides…. after all, we’re Americans, right? HOME OF THE BRAVE….and WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW… till last gasps….
Let’s keep track of industry peeps who are naughty and nice in 2015! SUBMIT INFO FOR COMP LAUDE AWARDS – 2015! Save the Date – December 5, 2015…… Maybe we’ll see YOU at an InjuredWorkers Table!
PS: David, can you offer a discount to Injured Workers? Maybe if accompanied by a doctor, lawyer, or other provider? 😀 Can you make it virtual, for those who find travel too challenging? Can you make it national this year? International next year? Peeps in Canada, UK, Japan and elsewhere have some of the very same problems… oh…maybe because some of those Players are global in scope, some of the same crowd that Stole America’s homes? Nawww, too coincidental, huh?
PS I have another Court Hearing coming up for yet another evaluation…. defense firm apparently didn’t like any of the neuro-psych reports since 2012…. SHOP CHURN SHOP…. District Attorney’s office said the complaints had ‘some merit’… back in 2013…. still waiting for further word there, too. Who pays for the Judge’s time?
