QUESTION: What’s up with the WorkComp “surveys”…Looks like “Big Money” is behind them. What do you think? Maybe it’s a ‘good thing’?
Do your own research; Draw Your Own Conclusions! Here’s more to get started…

“Share Your Workers’ Comp Story”
“As part of our ongoing investigation, we invite you to tell us about your experience navigating the workers’ comp system. Have something we should look into?”
# # #
ONE ANSWER: “If you mean the reports by ProPublica and OSHA, you’ll have to ask them. I think these are done periodically to see what is going on with workers’ comp.”
“OSHA has federal dollars behind it, and ProPublica probably has to raise funds or has endowments that allow it to operate.”
# # #
“A few hours after ProPublica and NPR issued the first in a series of reports about workers’ compensation “reforms” sweeping the country, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration coincidentally released a paper linking workplace injuries to income inequality.”
“The OSHA paper and ProPublica/NPR stories come to similar conclusions about how some injured workers have been affected by a decade of changes in workers’ compensation laws, including cutbacks in benefits and more difficulty in getting benefits.”

Well, I filled out both surveys, and will keep you posted if anybody gets in touch….or if it’s just a black-hole for collection and round up…

Here’s some Facebook humor, for what it’s worth:
Here’s my story…. sad but true…. https://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/list-of-posts.
DATE OF Initial INJURY: 1/9/2012 – Repeated failures to provide medically necessary treatment. Designated primary doctor Orthopedic Surgeon–FOR A HEAD INJURY!
DIAGNOSIS: CLOSED HEAD INJURY, CONCUSSION, TBI, PTSD, ETC. [see blogs for more details on diagnosis and denied medical care]
Thousands and thousands of dollars spent on reports and evaluations; malicious, callous and willful DEFENSE AND CARRIER disregard of repeated requests for medically necessary treatment. Repeated failures to pay TTD in 2012 and 2013, and in 2014, carrier settled with State for EDD paid disability at a severe discount, leaving injured worker to rely on Salvation Army and continuing attempts for Social Security Disability assistance, while exhausting all personal resources for life-saving treatments and devices…. more than $30K out of pocket spent, and continued refusals to participate in interactive process for possible Return To Work, and employer failures/refusals to demand #ClaimAudit…. File churning, delays, denials seem the norm, Allegations of age, gender, disability, civil rights and ADA violations by extensive network of fraudsters also.

How can InjuredWorkers Survive #WorkComp in America? It’s time for #DomesticTortureReports
Are you LinkedIn? Here are some further thoughts, and do follow the above stories and reports…. be sure to read the comments. It’s easy to see the industry provocateurs, huh? More than one attorney and ‘investigative journalist’ who work for the insurance side have told me it’s all my fault I have been denied medically necessary treatments FOR OVER 3 YEARS….. Well, you know #WorkComp….. that ‘small community’ has their own ‘little rules’ to follow……and they are well-paid for following orders, aren’t they?
Watch it again, and tell your friends and neighbors. Defense Against the #Psychopath (Full length) –
We are the Media Now, by any and every means necessary. Blogging, Vlogging, Posting, Tweeting…
#WorkComp is NOT an Employee Benefit….. It’s a killing machine based on the business model of
PROFITS BEFORE LIVES…… Is history repeating itself? Ask any Injured Worker!
MARCH IS BRAIN INJURY AWARENESS MONTH… YEP… EVERYDAY IS BRAIN INJURY AWARENESS FOR A BRAIN INJURY SURVIVOR…
WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW.
Has anybody else been to a doctor who practices ‘functional neurology’? It’s very scientifically based… no guesswork, no drugs.
Blogging and Vlogging are other ways we can tell our stories…. Here’s a video from 2012, after some excellent ‘functional neurology’ treatments in Palm Desert, California. Of course, the defense firm threatened the doctor and told him to stop treating me, and continued to refuse to provide any medical care for the first 2.5 years, finally got some speech therapy, vision therapy, and occupational therapy via work comp for a few days, when months were requested…. For you info…. document your stories….. we’re all fighting for our lives, and those who follow…. Carry on!
Acupuncture has also been extremely helpful since August 2013, along with neuro-vision prism lenses and therapies, no thanks to the insurance carrier.
Currently, I am most grateful for the Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program in Newport Beach…. an incredible organization with experts in the field of brains and compensatory strategies.
For what it’s worth…. more to follow…

Every day is a fight for life for anybody stuck in the WorkComp System of PROFITS BEFORE LIVES……while those who know, conveniently look away from the corruption……falsely believing it could never happen to them….
